So are you saying it's flat or it's slightly raised in the front? Some brands look like they have a tapered bottom surface or slanted. The one I have has a completely flat surface which may not contour to the curvature of the kickstand.

I would not be concerned. As others have said, in soft ground it will do its job.

Whatever, it is of no consequence as it will work when needed. Did you put a little blue Loctite on the screw threads?

Yep. Slightly raised in the front. Never a problem and in soft stuff it does just fine.

I think my older Touratech sits a bit high like that as well (My bike is still tucked in waiting for milder weather).

Thanks for the responses. I'm not too concerned with it, my OCD just kicks in and I like things to be exactly as they should be. With that said it is a solid piece and looks nice. It's very well made and appears to be durable. When the bottom plate wears a little after time it will flatten out a tiny bit more.

When they say break in they mean the bottom plate will slightly wear like the sole of a shoe. I guess I could wear down a little but it still works just fine. Yes 50.00 a little pricy from twisted throttle. Thanks for the link.

I'm seeing lots of expensive TT products posted by low post count members.

It's a shame these low post count members didn't go to our website first.

For example, https://www.adventuretech.biz/suzuki...tand-foot.html

They could have saved a bunch of money.

I have one that I used on my'14 DL1000 and then transfered it to new model DL1000 (purchased in September 2017). It has always been "rised" a bit, just like on your photos and it still is. So, after 3-4 years of constant use, nothing has changed and it works perfectly.
I guess it's like that because of the use in soft ground.

It obvious you don't have OCD or you'd have posted your CDO kicked in!

All I know is my Adventuretech foot print is indeed completely flat to the ground, interesting that some here are not.
