Looking to get a little more "toe room" on my T.  In looking at Aero pedals fitment charts, keep getting message that it doesn't fit.  I know from other posts that (at least some) Aero pedals have been installed and are supposedly "plug and play".  So, are there some years that do and some that don't?  

Appreciate the help, as always.

Hey Trapper
Are there Aero pedal style you are looking for in particular? You might look at ACE for fitment. Let me know what you are looking at...I love digging around for stuff like that!

The stock 1100 Aero brake pedal should be a bolt-on, The 1100 Aero floorboards bolt right on the T. even though they never show up when searching since Honda never put them there. FWIW the 1100 Aero shifter pedal is also a different part number, I'd like to compare it to the T's

The 750 Aero is completely different.

EDIT: I do have the Aero floorboards on my T...    Scootworks made an extended brake Pedal for the Nomad as the stock pedal took up the center section of the factory floorboards, wonder if they made one for the 1100 Shadows?

Looking on ebay and amazon, there were different pedals listed as being for the Aero 1100.  Decided to do my homework and went to Partzilla to review the exploded parts schematics.  Found that many of the pedals on the web are mislabeled as being for Aero, when they're really for the ACE or Spirit.  

There's only one model/style for the Aero 1100, and it's a direct fit for the T. 
 Will be watching for one in good shape and switching.

Thanks all.

Update:  Found one in good shape and did the switch.  It was a direct swap.  Have always thought this pedal looked better (and would feel better) than the stock one.  I was half right.  Looks more like it belongs, but isn't nearly as easy/comfortable/natural feeling to use as the OEM T pedal.  Has to do with my riding position.  If the controls were more "forward" I think it'd be fine.  Have this type/style pedal on both my Vulcans and no issue.  But it feels somewhat cramped to raise my toe and push forward, have to flex the ankle to keep my heel on the board.  If I raise my entire foot and brake it's better, but not natural.

Will probably switch back next time I have the pipes off.  Oh well.

Hey Trapper, did you notice the brake pedal on this 99 james posted in the for sale thread? Is this one different from the one you have? this one looks more like the Scootworks one I had on my Nomad. Moved the pedal pad up to the front of the floorboard:

The one shown is the same as I have now.  Toe of my boot fits under just fine, but have to move my foot back and then "flex" it up on my heel to reach the pad.  The original pedal was easier for me to use.....doesn't look as good but easier to use.
