1. Remove the two (2) 6mm bolts holding the brake hose clips in place. 2. Slide the cover in from the rear over the swing arm and align the holes. (NOTE: on Retro models and some aftermarket exhausts it is necessary to remove the two (2) muffler mounting bolts and loosen the two (2) exhaust nuts on the rear cylinder head then pull the exhaust outward to gain clearance to slide the cover into position). 3. Replace the original front bolt or bolts into the cover and hose clip. NOTE: the hose clip should go behind the chrome cover and it may be necessary to straighten out the bend in the clip slightly to gain alignment of the holes. Replace the rear bolt with the one supplied and tighten both securely. 4. Replace and tighten the exhaust bolts if removed earlier

• Remove the cotter pins, washers and pivot pins from the stock foot pegs, then remove the peg. • Install the floorboard assembly into the foot peg mounting brackets using the provided hardware. (NOTE: the boards are marked Left and Right) Put the bolt thru the hole with the head of the bolt facing the front of the motorcycle. On 1800C models you will need to place one of the washers removed earlier between the floorboards mounting block and the “U” shaped peg mount bracket on the frame. This will fill the additional clearance on this model. Next install the washer and nut onto the bolt and tighten securely. • Check the button head allen bolt that mounts the Rivco passenger board pivot assembly with a 7/32″ allen wrench to be sure that it is tight. We offer an optional set of link arms (part no #VTX005-5), which will relocate the boards 3.5″ farther forward. These are extremely beneficial to passengers with long legs and for motorcycles fitted with any saddlebags which cramp the passenger’s foot rest area.
