    I'm new to this board and have a question. I recently lost one rubber foot pad off a "Harley mustache engine guard" Harley is telling me that I cannot get a replacement, and as far as I can see their right. I can remove the other pad and replace it with aftermarket pads so thay match but I really do not want to do that, any ideas?

    It is possible that the HD mustache guard is built by an aftermarket maker/sub contractor like Lindby or similar...check out their website to see if the rubber parts they offer can be used on yours, course you may have to buy to of the applied pads...so cost wise may be an issue with you...

    Thanks for the info, Mustache engine guard is a type of guard that helps protect the engine and other accessories if the bike were to fall over or dropped.

    The HD Mustache Guard looks like this:

    Apparently Madhatter needs one or both of the stick on rubber pads or glue on leather or other pad alternative...

    I have the mustache guard on my Heritage but don't find the foot rests to be very comfortable. Aesthetically it looks great, but is not very practical.

    Do any of you guys use the foot rests?

    07 heritage here , and I have the Kuryakan mustache guard with flip out footrests. I've got to say that I like the way I'm able to stretch out. It actually gives you 2 different positions of leg rest. But thats what I happen to like, may not be what fits you.
