Four Quick V-twin Control Upgrades

Hot Bike adds style to a Harley-Davidson Street Glide

Not all mods have to be difficult or time consuming to have a big impact. Sometimes the right upgrades with a few hand tools and a little bit of Loctite done on a Saturday afternoon can quickly give your bike a custom touch. We took our 2017 Harley-Davidson Street Glide #gleamingthecube and added some floorboards and grips from Accutronix, pegs from Speed Merchant, and a little bit trim from Klock Werks to spruce up the look. Our buddies at Strictly Hawgs handled the install and only took a casual hour or so.

Quick upgrades!

Speed Merchant pegs

Step 5: Next for the Speed Merchant pegs, remove the stock rear shifter peg. Step 6: Install the Speed Merchant pegs after adding a bit of Loctite. Step 7: These metal pegs will look much better with the new floorboards. Step 8: Remove the stock floorboards with the bolt underneath.

Install the new floorboards

Step 9: Install the new floorboards on the correct side. Step 10: We had to purchase a new bracket from Harley-Davidson to run the rear floorboards. Step 11: First remove the stock peg mounts. Gently tap the Torx socket into the head to avoid stripping the bolt. Step 12: Install the bracket onto the Accutronix rear boards.
