EDIT: Just looked your bike up on the Fiche, looks like it's the same setup as mine, so I don't know why that bottom bolt hole on your bike is threaded.
So it sounds like the best solution would be to drill it out. I'm ok with that, I've had a some time to morn the loss of arbitrary threading and I've accepted it.

Did you have a stomp pad (can't think of the right name for it) welded onto your center stand for ease of use, of do you just use it as it came?
