This is a mod (if you want to call it that) that I did a few weeks ago but did not had the courage to post it.:-[ Finally I said what the :evil:. This is a set of homemade passenger floorboards I fabricated out a piece of steel plate. I cut them into size, sanded them and painted them with left-over high temp I had left from when I drilled the holes on my exhaust. I then put some non-skid on top of them and spray painted this bad a55 logo (idea thanks to a fellow forum-member) on top. I unscrewed the rubber inserts from the passenger pegs and used nuts & bolts to screw these masterpieces on there. What do you guys think? It's not the best job as you can see with the edges and the spray painting but it was the best I could do with only a few hours before sunset. (the next day wife and I rode to S. Padre Island) She said it was much better then the stock ones. Also the heel of her boots did not rub on the exhaust anymore!!! That was my motivation to do this mod; oh, and also the lack of mula!

Pretty good looking homemade mod there. :bigthumbsup: Could you had set it up by screwing them from the underside? I think it would just make it a bit cleaner looking.

I thought about it, also thought about making it into a footprint shape but I was lacking time. Thanks everyone.

For a cheap mod it looks great. You could even round them off a little to make them look more like the ones you buy if you wanted, but those look good as is. And if they work, that's all you need. :bigthumbsup::bigthumbsup:

Wooh wooh, wait a ... second, I'm not making these to sell and make profit, I made these because I needed something that will make my wife's ride comfortable and just happened to like... no wait, I Love BlkM109R's design and stamped it on the non-skid. I'm no lawyer but if someone is, please let me know if this is copyrighting. I tried to send a message last night to BlkM109R to let him know what I did, but the computer stopped cooperating but I'm going to get right on it to appease some :'( babies.

:agree: It is a copy right design. Joe is a great guy, man up and tell him what you did.

You don't have to worry about " appeasing" anyone except me.

Yes it's copyrighted, almost ALL artwork is. A good rule of thumb is that if YOU didn't create it, it's not free to use. Just like you can't decide you like the Golden arches and use the McDonalds logo for your own stuff.

That said, if you'd have asked permission i could have given you a good file to use so it would look correct.

Just so I understand you correctly, you are saying we are babies for trying to protect a fellow riders art work?

Well then, someone hand me a boob shaped passifier please! :bigthumbsup:

To infuse anyones' artwork into your own is not only a legal matter but simply polite. It doesn't seem to bother BlkM109r (too much), he's probably flattered, but the right thing to do is ask first, rather than send a message after the fact to let him know what you did.
