    I did a search and couldn't find any concrete answers on how to fix this issue, all I found was replacing pegs w/ boards.

    I ride an 09 Ultra and my wife's feet/floorboards are forever hitting my calves when approaching a stop or parking. Is there an easy fix for this?

    Thanks in advance.

    B-1B, my solution may not work for you because I don't carry a passenger, but I took 'em off!

    B-1B, I had the same problem with mine. I am a relatively short guy 5'-10" and my pfb's were constantly whacking the backs of my calves, even when folded up. First I just took them off, which was fine, but even though I don't usually ride 2 up, I wanted something just in case. I ended up trading my passenger boards for a set of pegs and brackets from a street glide. They work out fine and don't hit my legs at all when they're folded up. BTW if you decide to do this mod I have a set of brackets available as I ordered them and then ended up trading for the peg/bracket.

    Try shifting into neutral. before coming to a stop and you can control where your feet come down easier.Also when riding with a passenger and trying to park have them get off before you try to park and kick them up so you dont hit them.works for me.
