Not having a go at anyone but I wish we had manufactures like DK, keep up the innovations they are great
Yeah, shipping just keeps getting more and more expensive!

USPS rates are going up again at the end of this month. Some of the more popular packages are having close to a 10% rate increase!

One thing we do automatically, and is included in our pricing, is insure every package. With very few exceptions, we do not use 1st class mail, it is slow and not easily insured. We find that Priority mail, insured, is usually the fastest and least expensive way to ship...sometimes, not often, insured UPS is less expensive. Uninsured & under insured packages have a higher possibility of being lost or damaged...when that happens no one is a happy camper, so everything is fully insured.

How will the peg adapters work in terms of the pegs being spring loaded? Will you loose the spring, and they are just fixed down.

With the DK Footpeg Adapters you receive spring washers as part of the kit. These keep the pegs in the down position when you put them down, and they keep them in the up (folded up) position when you fold them up. This is the same way pegs have worked on Harleys for decades. The spring/ball-bearing/detent method found on the M8 Softail pegs is no longer needed.

You can see how easy this is in the instructions at this LINK.

Thanks.

I spoke with Devin (the "D" in DK) about making some that would pull the floorboards back. How much further back would you want them? Anybody that would like this, please email me at [email protected] and let me know you would, and how far back. After I get emails for a week or so we'll look at what everyone is wanting and make some up.

sounds good. This is my first Harley, so i am still learning the ins and outs. I want to run some mini boards on my breakout, and this is just what I needed.

Sorry for for taking so long I respond.

No more than maybe 2-3 inches back would probably work well for me. I have your kit to move the floorboards out but have not had time to try them.

Thank you for considering doing this, email coming.

I just emailed Ultimate, I don't see a seat for the Low Rider or Sport Glide yet. I'm hoping they are working on it and hoping it's not too wide. I'd like to see something less than 14" wide for my Low Rider, so far Saddlemen has one (Renegade 818-29-002LS) but out of stock everywhere and no back rest or passenger pad for it.
