Interested in passenger floorboards ?

I'm wondering how many of the K13GT and late-model K12GT owners out there would be interested in buying passenger floorboards. Check out this link and let me know...
I'm not the seller, I'm trying to get the seller interested in making an adapter for my K13GT.

I can't log in to see the pics, but pretty sure I have seen rear (and front) floorboards for a KGT. No reason in the world I can think of that they wouldn't work on either a 1200 or 1300

Ilium Works makes some driver floorboards for the GT. Not sure if they'd work on the passenger pegs though.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

I thought that too, but my first thought would be the rear for an LT, if it's the current version LT. I would think either would fit the bracket, but the spacing if probably clser to being correct on the rear/LT one. Only possible concern is clearance between the back of it and the front of the saddlebag.

I've set of passenger floor boards from Ilium works that were originally on a 1200RT. They transferred across to the 1200 GT without any problems. I've had a close look at the 1300GT and there doesn't seem to be any reason why the Iium work passenger boards won't work.

David, can you snap some pics of those passenger floor boards on your K1200. This might be perfect for my daughter who not quite tall enough to reach the OEM pegs easily.

Thank you very much.

No, the mounting bracket for the GT passenger pegs are at an angle, not parallel with the ground like the LT.
I'd like to see the pics of the Illium boards for the 1200RT mounted on the GT also...

Probably could be made to work if you are creative.
