Side stand foot extender by R&G

I just installed a foot extender for my kickstand on my 2018 V Strom xt1000. My question is anyone who has installed on of these kickstand foot extenders, does your kickstand foot lay flat on the ground or is it angled up a little or toe up in other words. I installed my extender from R&G and the bottom does not completely come in contact with the ground, it angles up a little and is not flush. It seems to work just fine and it's nice and tight and secure. There is only one possible way to install it and really no room for play or movement. The kickstand has a tab on the back of it where the extender comes in contact with which gives it no room to move any other way. Tell me how yours is even if it's a different brand foot extender. Thanks.

Nice. Looks like it is properly installed to me.

I believe that the larger size is to give better support on soft ground. That the bottom does not make full contact on hard surfaces should not be an issue.

Should be totally flat, not sure why that isn't doing so? I assume the OEM stand foot is completely flat without the foot installed? I'd get ahold of the seller and tell them what's going on, my Adventuretech foot most certainly doesn't do that.

BigB- My Adventure Tech foot on my 2018 1000 is that way too.

It certainly won't hurt the way it is. If you get on hot asphalt or soft dirt the heal will sink a small amount than then the rest will make contact and you're bike will stand tall and proud like the mighty oak.

Well I watched a few videos from R&G and the only thing I got out of that was they say give it time for it to break in or wear in. They state it's like a new shoe and eventually it will break in and fit the stand. I guess since the bike is brand new and their are no alterations to the suspension or height it will take a little time to settle.
