Can anyone confirm that these mp3 500 floor boards will fit on the 400?

And one underappreciated advantage to having diamondplate floorboards on an MP3/400: it changes adding footpegs from a twenty-minute task requiring special tools into a one-minute job.

neat! I've been looking at those pegs and been meaning to add my name to the spring waiting list. I figured I'd post around first.

By far the best Mod for the bike.
Before I could make about 30minutes before I started dancing on the saddle... just ask OAD, Georgia Girl and Fuzzy...

Now I am like a rock, no/very little discomfort at all...
The sitting in a chair position was hell on my knees...

Like Nike says, "Just do it.."

I've got the diamond plates on order and I've thrown my name in the 2011 peg bracket pool.
I've already been mocking up where my pegs will put my feet. I'm pretty psyched.

Did you have to order anything other than the diamond plates and were they a special order that took forever to arrive or were they in stock?

I have a pair of UFP that I have been waiting to install on my wife's 400 but I have been reluctant to punch hole in the rubber mats.

you should also get the spacers that go between the floorboards and the frame. these stop you from over tightening the screws down and pulling the floorboards down and causing them to dimple down.
