  • Passenger floorboards

    Just picked up my new to me 05 roadstar. The passenger floorboards are folded up, I cannot get them folded down . What's the trick ???

    Are these the stock Yamaha boards? If so they should just fold down. There is along the pin a small metal plate with two holes. Inside the board is a spring loaded steel ball that drops into those holes to help hold it in the down or up position. If they've been left up for a long period it's possible there is a little rust in there making hem difficult to move.

    Two options. Brute force and hope for the best. Or remove the e-clip and slide the pin out. Being careful on how things go back together and not lose the small ball etc. Then clean and lube everything so it works smoothly as intended.

      I would lube the mechanism before attempting brute force, then plan B if not.

        quality lube with residual factor , wd 40 is just too thin and evaporates. i use pb blaster corrosion stop 2 or 3 cans a year for bicycles, boats, motors , trailers , it leaves a film that persists. every few years all the product availability changes when big box stores change vendors homeodeepeot carries this down heah in humidity land, we your shit will rust in the garage even if not protected. https://blasterproducts.com/product/corrosion-stop/
