    Hello

    I would like to know if anyone makes floorboard brackets to extend the floorboards outward, rather then the extension kits.

    I don't like the extension kit becoming another weak point in the whole floor board system. There are times I have stood on my boards supporting all my weight (not much, but 190 Lb's), and would rather have a "one piece" bracket.

    I put the 3/4" extensions on my 05RG and I have put my weight on both floorboards (165lb) with no problems.

    I too have the ones from Harley Goodies and at 210 I seem to be the heaviest to write in yet with the same result. They use grade 8 fasteners which have a shear strength way in excess of any possible load you could ever put on them, a little blue loc-tite, torque them, and forget about them.

    I have the Harley Goodies ones as well. I'm 220, and I've stood on my floorboards (because I can, that's why :p). They are pretty rock solid.
