It sucks having to pay for spacers then fit them after spending all that money on Tall Boy brackets!

I got a HD matching black extended rear brake lever from Kuryakyn which is also good, and a extended shifter but it only comes in chrome. Hey that's ok you need a bit of chrome to show off the black.

At my height the seat is fine so I would leave that until last.

I hope this helps.
I used the pringle spacers too. They work great. But the heads on the black bolts already rusted. I'll throw some black paint on them and call it a day.

Extended brake pedal

Just installed a SoftBrake extended lever +1 with Narrow pedal. This setup fits perfect on my 18 Road Glide Ultra. Needed to install floorboard spacer kit to install the pedal I purchased and it real made a difference on how my foot sits on floorboard. I would recommend this setup for a more comfortable ride.

I'm 6'3".

For my new 2020 RGS I'm looking at the tall boy brackets and Ciro frame mounted highway pegs. Is anybody using these together?

I don't have the bike yet, but from the test ride I knew I would need to do something with the boards. On my '15 SGS I did the Kuryakyn kit that moves them out and down 1" each. It made the bike way more comfortable. I didn't do the extended brake or shifter, but probably will this time.

I'll see once I get the bike and put my Mustang seat on it.

Emailed Tall Boy Cycles and got the same crickets I got here. Looking at the Ciro instructions it looks like you replace a factory bracket, so very likely a no go.

I'll have the bike in a couple of days and put some time in before deciding what to do.

Six months ago my Pringle spacers came with galvanized bolts.

I emailed them. They said they would gladly send out a new set of bolts. But they are the same zinc ones I have. They said they don't have galvanized available. I will find galvanized on the web. Not a big deal

Has anyone installed the Tallboy relocation kit with the Harley "Defiance" floorboards. I just bought a set of these floorboards and the tallboy relocation kit sounds great but wanted to check if anybody has them installed with these floorboards. Thanks in advance!

Well.....ordered and installed the tall boys brackets and the Softbrake +2. Wow...what a comfortable change. Also wanted to mention that I called the tallboys to ask a few questions before ordering....super knowledgable and helpful. They are a solid supplier. Very pleased so far.

BTW....anyonE have trouble inserting the kotter pin from the engine side of the brake linkage?

Nice, now order the Pingel 1 3/4" spacers and get your thighs off that tank.
