Side-stand foot

I haven't seen any bolt-on side-stand feet enlargers to help from sinking into soft ground. Any suggestions?

Try these guys... they are a local NW start-up company, all products made in the USA, so they cost a little more than the chineese junk, but a lot of guys around here think there products are top-shelf!

I bot one from Touratech. It's a little expensive (around $38 with shipping), but it bolts right on. I don't ever park in grass or dirt, but I ride the wee to my office quite a bit in the summer and was more concerned about poking holes in my landlord's asphalt. Problem solved.

I bolted a regulation hockey puck to my Vee's kickstand. Made in Czechoslovakia, $1.99 at the local sporting goods emporium.

Not my idea originally, but damn, it works great.

???

I'm not near my bike so I cannot verify..........but isn't there a hole in the bottom of the kickstand "foot" already?? If so, seems like an easy DIY fix?? (I could be totally wrong........usually am....)

The guys (and ladies) over at AltRider do rock...but since our OP has a DL650, that foot won't work for him. The DL650 foot will be out shortly, and will clear the Suzuki centerstand (I'm positive on this ). They'll probably need to confirm for other centerstands.

WWGWD?
