Floorboard extensions

I just got my new seat put on (Mustang wide tripper solo seat) and 14" yaffe bars and let me tell you how much more comfortable my bike is to ride now, no more lower back pain and the boys are happy. Now I need to get my feet and legs comfortable. I have been browsing around on here and noticed floorboard extensions seem like a must have item and help out a lot. Sorry for the stupid question that is about to come but I have to ask, what exactly do they do? I can assume they are just brackets that go in the holes that your floorboards bolt to. I noticed a lot of people like the Harley goodie ones but I can not find them no where so I am assuming they are no longer made or discontinued. Any other recommendations? Also do they come in different sizes if so how do you know what size to get? I am 6'2" 38 inseam

Im 6-1 with 32" inseam and I have the Kuryakyn floorboard extenders that push them out 1" and forward 1". I felt it made a huge difference in comfort.

When I got my Arlen ness big sucker, my knee hit, so I made my own.

I bought 1" longer bolts, blue loctite, washers, and a 1"x1" square aluminum stock.

I cut the aluminum to 2 1" squares, drilled my holes, and punched out the stops. Bolted everything together, and for about $25-30 ($19 for a 1x1x4' aluminum square stock)

Been riding with them for about 1200 miles and they are much more comfy.

Changed names due to some legal issue with the MOCO

Well worth it. I put them on mine and made a big difference

I used the relocator brackets not the spacers. The pic on the kury website shows them best. The spacers move them out 3/4 of inch only and teh relocators put them out 1" and forward 1", which is what you need with those daddy long legs of yours.
