Rider Footboard Heel Guard is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great I had some doubts but this guard works great on my trike to prevent heel marks on the exhaust!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from As advertised. Guard was easy to install and no more melted shoe soles to scrub off the exhaust. Money well spent!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from FootBaord Heel Guard Though I needed this once I melted part of my boot heal. Little SOS clean up on the chrome and a better awareness of boot placement and the trouble is gone. Installation was not lining up like most HD products and it seemed to restrict the footboard movement bit. Nice product, just don't think its needed..

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the Job This product prevents the messy heel melting marks on your pipes. While it does not seem to be long enough the curved end causes your heel to deflect outward and prevents contact with the pipe. At any rate it works. Installation was easy enough but you will have to drill a hole in your floorboard. I would give five stars but the product seems to be way overpriced for what it is.

Will the Heel Guard 50500225 fit with Tapered Rider Footboard Kit with Crested Bar & Shield Inset-50634-05 Thanks Andy
Asked by: harleylover767
No, I don't believe it will. With the foot boards you described, it sounds like you ride a Softail Deluxe. The Deluxe is not listed as one of the fitment models and the way those foot boards attach appears to be different from other softails and touring bikes, due to their tapered shape. You can look at the Installation Instructions under the "Additional Info Tab" and compare it to your bike's configuration. Too me, it does not look compatible with your style of boards. Hope this helps.

Will this fit with Vance & Hines Pro Pipe installed?

Asked by: Fasteddie
Fasteddie, yes it will fit with your Pro Pipes. The guard runs along the inner edge of your right footboard and attaches to the bottom of the footboard mounting bracket.

Put this heal guard on 2014 Road King and it worked great. Just purchased 2015 CVO Road Glide Ultra and cannot get it to fit . Any ideas?

Asked by: MickeyS
MickeyS is correct. Contrary to the fitment list, this heel guard does not fit the 2015 CVO Road Glide Ultra. It will not line up with the CVO foot board.

Will this heel guard hit the exhaust shields if the footboard folds up (for example if the bike is dropped on its right side) ?

Asked by: ty53
Hello Ty53, The heel guard will not hit any components if the footboard is folded up. Thank You!

Is there only one heel guard in an order? If so, is it installable on either side of the bike? Does it come with two heel guards, one for each side? The description is not clear.
Asked by: Adrasteia
Only one to an order. Installation instructions only show right side install. Appears to be only useful for right side install, to keep your heel away from the exhaust heat shield. Works!
