Is it really too small? Don't thing I've ever read complaints before, unless you keep parking on sand!
Actually,I don't have any experience with this pad, but looked it up briefly. My main concern would be that when added to the underside of the existing pad, the bike won't be able to lean over as far when the stand is down. There are issues with the stock kickstand being a bit unstable because the geometry doesn't allow the stand to kick forward into position very securely and the bike sits a bit too vertically. The odd tip-over can reult if you are not careful. If you add this pad, it looks like you will exacerbate the problem.
Also; could this thing get in the way when you move the kickstand "up" to start riding? I mean, it looks like it might also interfere with allowing the stand to fully retract up into position. Don't know, but I suppose for $15, you can give it a try and it won't break the bank if it doesn't really work out for you!
