    check with a member here "spursmech" there was some talk about a year ago about making them, not sure whatever happened with this, maybe he can point you in the right direction.

    If your handy, you can make your own.

    A few posts down there is a template. Just print the file up at 1-1 scale, transfer it to the material of your choice, cut it out and shape it.
    There is also a couple of people that sell them in this thread too.

    I have a set at home that has never been installed. I have been thinking of selling them.

    mentioned in the other thread about being cosmetic, but i dissagree. When scooting pretty good you can "Hold On" to the bike better with your knees.

    Mine came from England, already on the bike when I bought it. I'm not a big fan, they dig in sometimes.

    If anyone has a set of these, I'm looking to buy some like by tomorrow. So if anyone wants to sell as long as I can polish them into almost chrome, let me know. Thanks, Ed

    Honestly for me, if I am hitting it I normally place my feet on the passenger pegs.

    I believe these work better when you have rearsets installed. With rearsets your knees tend to drop down and can bang against the frame and motor. The plates provide a flat surface to rest your knees against.

    My bike was the test bike for the Scottish made ones, I also have then on with a frame brace and the fit fine.

    Speak with him direct rather than email and I am sure he can do you a good deal.

    I have these and they are fine with my german frame braces. You just dont use the support bracket. I just put rubber stoppers on the back and they are fine. They dont flex from what I have seen in the past year with them. Oh and I did have to mod the mounting bracket to allow placement pass through for the framebrace bolt. That was fun cutting out for sure....love my dremmel!
