    Chrome guard and all mounting hardware
Rider Footboard Heel Guard is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 30.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from NIce accessory - Note it requires drilling into your footboard This is a quality product that will surely assist in protecting your heels from melting on the exhaust and long hours cleaning the exhaust. Installation is easy but requires to drill the footboard to secure the fastener tab. So if you are not ready for that or do not feel handy enough, walk away from this item or ask your dealer, or a handy friend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HEEL GUARD Worth the money and works great if you have trouble with your foot sliding back and hitting exhaust pipe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Boot Guard Easy to install. Looks great and not cheap or flimsy. Keeps your foot from getting too close to the exhaust as advertised. Kind of wonder why it doesn't just come with the bike in the first place?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best investment yet Easy to install. No more black marks on your pipes. Well worth the price.

Will this fit with Extened Length Rider Running Boards, part# 50500158?

2007 Electra Glide Ultra Classic
Asked by: HDgirl72

Will this fit a 2016 CVO Limited FLHTKSE?

Asked by: Nemguy
I don't think so. I just pulled my footboard off, then took off the rubber insert. There's a lip on the footboard that looks like it needs to be ground down before the heel guard can attach properly to the footboard. By the way I have the exact bike you do. The fitment paperwork says it will fit 2016 FLHTK, but not Screaming Eagle. They are the same bikes for the most part. I wish the Harley guys would weigh in on this. Doesn't seem to want to fit.

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.
