I too installed the Kury #4574 chrome offsets. Used a 3” heavy bushing for spacers. Had bought a pair of chrome sockets (much cheaper than the bushings!), but the hole inside was just a tad too narrow to get the 1/2 bolt through. Used 1/2” x 4-1/2” grade 5 volts, with star lockwashers on both sides of the bushings. Plenty stout, actually stood up on them to insure they wouldn’t rotate. Put 175 miles on them this evening (in the rain), and am very satisfied with them!

Sure, attached are the pics I am 6' 3" and find these quite nice. I don't like my legs stretched out to far.
Definitely something I have to add to the CTX I just acquired to go on longer rides esp since a bit gimped up with hip and back issues. The question I have is that on one of your pictures it looks like you've replaced your main riding peg with a mini floorboard. Do you like it and does it still work well for shifting and braking? Also, with the larger floorboard, do you get hung up with you pant leg on the ball of the kickstand as I find that I presently get caught occasionally . ( I intend on bending that ball either forward or backwards once I weld a 3/4 inch plate to the narrow kickstand foot)

Are these the floorboards?

I find them more comfortable than pegs. It feels like your foot is flat on the floor and not like your foot is teetering on a bar stool peg. That always makes my calves cramp up.
There is room for shifting and braking. I think I adjusted my shifter a little higher.
They are Kuryakyn.

Thanks Greg.. I am definitely shopping around for a floorboard style and am considering the Kuryakyn Kinetic Mini Board as it can be adjusted front and back....good to know about changing the shifter angle as had not thought of that. Also see you welded a pad on your kick stand...I have just cut out a piece of 3/4' flat bar from an old towing hitch and notice that it will touch the exhaust covering when the kick stand is up. I was planning on welding a small bead on the upper part of the stand to prevent it from coming fully up...is that what you needed to do?

My pad isn't welded. It's made to fit a 2000 to 2017 Goldwing. I had to cut a grove around the foot to make it fit right and added more set screws. Filled in the gaps with black silicone. That's probably why it looks welded.
And the floorboard is also adjustable.

My kickstand foot barely touches the exhaust. I put a small piece of adhesive foam on the exhaust. If you prevent the stand from raising fully, will the safety switch still work?

Good point...I was going to try different positions to see where it would not start..... looking like not much needed if I keep the plate off center ( more to the front). I have also notched my plate to clear as much as possible . I wanted a thicker plate as well as a larger plate as I find the bike leans quite far over and requires a good heave-ho to lift her straight... hopefully 3/4 inch makes it easier.

Completed modification on kickstand foot plus changed angle of ball...wider foot should help with soft ground or hot pavement plus 3/4 inch height keeps bike a bit straighter and easier to lift...also tucked in the ball closer to bike so pants/chaps do not catch. Note..had to run bead on flang to give more clearance for thicker footpeg
