Installed Kuryakyn Spear Mini Floorboards.
Spear mini-foot boards look good - do you recommend them , feels better on your feet - does Not hinder breaking or shifting gears ?
Easy to install ?
Kuryakyn mini-floor boards have a SEPARATE Adapter  - is that needed for our BOLT ? -
does the mini-floor board still have the SPRING Upward feature like the stock Pegs ?

I've ridden to work a couple of times with them now and they feel nicer each time.  I think they are more comfortable for my feet. They are set up on their rear most setting and don't hinder the gear change at all.  The boards sit a little higher than the pegs did, so the brake sits lower compared to the boards than it did with the pegs.  I'm getting used to it and think it will feel "normal" quite soon, but it does feel a bit odd at first.

Yes you need an adapter for the bolt.
Boards: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06XKZL2Q6/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_image_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Adapter: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000IOH6TQ/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_image_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
 
The install was very easy.  Remove pegs and use the original spring and spacer (I had to grind the spacer a bit so it would fit) to attach the adapter, then bolt the boards on. The trickiest bit was getting the split pin out.

They spring upwards and I think they have a tiny bit more ground clearance than the pegs.  At this stage I would recommend them, I'll post again if I discover any problems that change my mind.

Welcome to the mini floorboards club, they look great.  Glad you like the feel of them.
I'm still loving mine, no way the pegs are going back on.   ;)

Love the grips, had been looking at those ones.  Let us know how they feel.

(1) Mini-Floor Boards - i angled TOE downward One Notch on Left - easy Toe under shifter side  / as picture Right angled upward One Notch foot rest but Not on brake
(2) GRIPS - i like them 60% for the looks , 40% for the unique feel (maybe just different is Neat-O affect) Kuryakyn or EBAY New for shopping is my suggestion
(3) Bartun TIRE PRESSURE monitor - gives PEACE of Mind , click app on phone , tells you psi - compared to habit of NEVER Checking tire pressure

Kuryakyn - RIOT mini-boards for Feet - Neat-O look , nice on feet - Right installed at center bolt and angled upward / Left at center and downward - TOE under shifter

Did you have to also order the separate splined adapter to make these fit the Bolt? If so, what part# did you get?

YES
Kuryakyn --- Technical Support: 715.247.2983   they can sell you PARTS too , credit card required
Item # 8814 - splined adapter only in chrome , one Pair is required for BOLT
Item # 3285 - RIOT mini-boards , one Pair - one color
$161.98 total charge to me - no shipping or tax charge for me in Colorado - this Time
FYI
the serrated face adapter allows the PEDAL to rotate upward 5* (right side) or downward 5* (left side) - my set-up
our BOLT foot pegs are built with no adapter required with Level connection
Do NOT damage the Cotter Pin at each installed FOOT PEG on our BOLT ..... it is a small cotter , and you would need to replace it if you break it
the PIN bolt with hole for cotter needs hammered out and KEPT and Re-Used also
