Forward extension question

I want to move the floor boards on my 2007 1100 Classic forward 3 inches. It looks like I can and still have my Yamaha engine guards installed.

I would hate to buy and find it wont work. I also have the oil filter relocation kit installed.

Anyone know if it will work?

As far as I know the off the shelf forward extension will not work with the engine guards.
Can't see how the oil relocating filter will cause a problem.

I've heard that some people have problems on the 1300, but I don't know about the 1100. I have looked at how they are mounted, and I believe I can fabricate something on my 1300 that will do the same thing you are talking about. I already have the extensions, but I would like to install a crash bar. Sometimes you just need a spacer here and an extension tab there, but many things can easily be done if you're handy enough. A guy once told me that with a torch and welder, he can make anything fit. The same guy wedged a Ford 302 into a BMW.

I wonder if the 1100 would be the same as the 1300.

I made some brackets on my 1100 like this when I added my floorboard extensions.

How long were your extensions?

Personally 3" is all I need. My bike was perfect until I got the Mustang seat for it. The seat is comfy, but it moved me a couple inches forward. I think 3" would be perfect.

based on those pictures I do not think that it would work. My extensions were 4 inches and it would not have worked at 2 inches. The front of my floorboard would hit the bars.

Four-and-a-half inch extensions from Scootworks. Here's a picture. Maybe my bars are different (bought them from another forum member a few years back) but the boards do not hit the bars. Not even close.

On my set-up, the bottom of the highway bars move with the boards, so if it didn't hit without the extensions, not sure why it would hit with them. What I needed to do was simply make a few brackets that would pick up the top mounting holes for the bars.

Thanks Redcat! My bike is hidden in the garage for the winter, so I cant access it until spring comes. You picture helped greatly!!!

I will be getting some extensions soon.
