Foot came off my side stand

Any ideas how to replace/fix it. I don't have access to a welder so that really isn't an easy option for me. I can still use it but the point is kinda tearing up my parking spot.

I have looked on ebay and a used replacement is very expensive. I would rather spend extra and buy an upgraded version

I'm showing $97 for the oem Suzi sidestand from MR Cycle.
Do you have the foot that came off, take both pieces to a welding shop and have them repair it? Any motorcycle salvage yards in your area?

You should be able to get it welded back on inexpensively if you have the part that broke off

I have repaired several over the years by welding a flat washer on the bottom. Bring the bike to a welding shop and ask for a repair quote. If price is agreeable get the welder to tack the foot on the side stand and put it back on the bike to try it. The foot will seat on the pavement and bend to get the required angle. Remove the kickstand and finish the weld.

As long as you disconnect the battery, Iím unaware of why you would need to remove the stand.

Geeze!
Just easier to clean up the joint, weld, the welder may request it due to close proximity to gasoline, and less chance of getting spatter on the bike, etc

You'd probably be amazed at how many guys have a welder. Ask around, you'll find someone. No point in throwing money at such an easy to fix problem.

Besides first disconnecting the battery prior to welding, I was taught to remove / unplug the ECU on the modern bikes. Cheaper than having to replace it. Re-assembly is ECU then the battery terminals, pos then neg.

Any muffler shop should be able to weld it for you.

If welding isn't an option get a big fender washer a 3/8" x 3" stove bolt and a couple 3/8" nuts. Put the bolt through the washer and then double nut it. Now fill the hollow of the side stand with silicone caulk or epoxy putty and poosh the bolt up in. Tape in place until the silicone and./or epoxy sets up and your goo to go. Since the foot is nothing structural all you need to do is hold it from falling out.
