    I ordered a chrome brake pedal cover for my '04 Heritage .
    Both the HD web site and the box the part came in said it
    would fit my year and model bike but the instruction insert
    says this kit ( #42478-95 ) is for 1986-1996 FLSTC ????

    The part I received has a bolt, two flat washers, and an acorn
    nut. The stock brake pedal cover has no bolt and seems to
    simply be a rubber cover slipped over the pedal. So the
    questions are :
    1) Can the stock rubber cover be removed without damage
    and replaced if the new chrome pad won't fit ?
    2) Is there a hole in the stock plate that is covered by the
    existing rubber cover or would a hole have to be drilled
    to mount the bolt on the new chome cover ?
    I did try several searches for info on this and could find no
    post or threads. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    [FONT=Verdana, Arial][FONT=Verdana, Arial]CHROME AND RUBBER FL BRAKE PEDAL PAD
    3-Slot Horizontal Chrome and Rubber both have their distinct places in the world of motorcycle styling. It seemed natural to bring the two together to create this unique collection. Bolt-on easy. Patent applied for. Fits '80-later Touring models and '86-later FL Softail models.

    Shouldn't be a problem, most pedals are drilled to accept the aftermarket or HD pedal covers. Make sure to get the HD logo straight when you tighten the nut underneath, they twist.

    Thanks again Glider. Hate to trouble you with such
    simple stuff but the difference in models and years
    (on the box and then on the insert) concerned me.

    Not a problem. A drop of blue locktite if it isn't on the thread already would be a good idea.

    Thanks again !!
    It took longer to get the old rubber cover off than it did to
    intall the new one :) Only problem was keeping the emblem
    streight. Blue locktite was used as you suggested.

    Generally backing off on the nut underneath will straighten the emblem without loosening it up.
