Default kick stand foot

Hi

Just wondered if anyone who has a centre stand also has a kick stand foot plate attached. Wanted to know if it all worked OK or whether there was any fouling

I cut one out of a piece of alunimum diamond plate and attached it to the side stand then I had to modify it until it cleared the center stand. No big deal.

No problem with my sw motech center stand and touratech sidestand thingy.

I recommend one too. No more waiting to see what the bike is doing when you are on soft or questionable surfaces, just put down the stand and walk away. No more carrying a piece of wood or looking for something to put under your stand.
Install one and be set free.

I had a big washer welded to the sidestand. No problems on clearance.

I started out using an electrical box cover plate. It worked ok but I had to keep a supply of them on hand as I would drive off and forget it.

Tried attaching a cable but that got to be a hassle.

I have the oem centerstand and now use the Altrider sidestand foot. No issues or fouling.

I carry a block of 2X4 in the tank bag with a lanyard attached so it doesn't get forgotted.
Even with the plate attached the bike leans a lot.
