I took a long ride yesterday and concluded that a little more flexibility in foot position would be good. So...tonight I ordered from Competition Accessories the Kuryakyn mini boards and splined adapters. The pegs on the CTX are actually identical to the ones on the ST and so I had to trace the correct (hopefully) adapters back from the ST part list. Will let you all know in about a week if this was worth the money. FYI. The adapters I eventually ordered were 8808. The Kuryakyn folks said that would add the CTX to their fitment list when someone brings one by the shop for measurement.
:smileygarden_de_ban Ooh I like the dancing pepper.

I just discovered that Kuryakyn is in Wisconsin! I never realized that. We have two owners here who live in that state, though not exactly close--Kuryakyn is in Somerset, just east of Minneapolis (so, close to the western border of Wisconsin). Maybe we could talk one of those guys to taking their bike by the factory for measurements. I know I certainly would like to see them make the ISO grips for the CTX…and those mini floorboards look great, too! Did you get the chrome ones or the gloss black ones? Personally I would get the gloss black because the Deluxe model already has a fair amount of that on it.

Next thing on the agenda see if they are thinking about adding heel toe shifter for those of us with gout
I don't think that would be easy (=worth the time/price) to do on the CTX1300, due to the way the mechanical linkage was done to the gearbox because the engine is rotated 90 degrees from its usual position on a cruiser.

They have alternatives to replacing the shift lever. Someone has a kit, for example, for the old Valkyrie that attaches to the existing lever and pivots off another bracket that's mounted somewhere else on the frame. If there's a will, there's usually a way. :)

I have seen floor boards with a heel/toe shifter on the GW and that engine is longitudinal just like the CTX engine. Don't think it would be a problem to make.
