finally got around to making a seat lanyard, ended up that when the seat is hanging it makes a good place to lay your tools while working with battery or making connections. also made these bungee spools for about 10 bucks. Auto part Engine Fuel line Vehicle Wire

I put on one of two Chieftain floorboards today on my Scout. I was having a hard time grasping one of the thing I had to do to the brake side so I took a break but I'm happy so far.



































Very nice . I couldn't figure out how they would work on the bobber because they use 2 pin points so I made my own

Cheiftain floorboards fit on a Scout????!!!!! tell me more!
Normally they don't, I happen to score an adapter kit made by Klockwerks that allows them to be used. I hope Klockwerks starts making these kits again because if I got another Scout, I'd probably do the same thing. It is about the most expensive option out there for floorboards however because the floorboards themselves have to be bought separately.

Not to be negative....
Just thinking --- without both supports on such a long floorboard, do you have any worries of torquing it if you put too much weight on the back 1/3 of the board --- say if you put your full weight on them lifting yourself up for an extra large bump?

That's my only wonderment.

I'd love to hear how you do for cornering clearance. Probably wouldn't make it better. As it is, I have to ride with my heels up on top of the pegs. I've worn a 45° angle on them from scraping --- and that's with modified suspension.

Great mod --- looking forward to your finished project!

You have a great question with the mounting. I don't think it would be an issue as the mounting surface is large and is supported by three bolts. The entire floorboard is supported from underneath. Check out the pic. Unless you weigh 300lb or more I don't think I's worry about it.

I'm not a geometry genius but I think the lean angle won't change much as the floorboards seem to sit higher than the native pegs.

Got this Saddlemen R1300LXE Tactical Deluxe rigid bag for an 2 day trip come spring. Rok straps look like they are going to work quite well. Much better than bungee cords. But without the saddlebag spools it would be a ***** to make the bag properly secure
