my solution

went over to the neighbor's shop to cut a piece of stainless for the foot pad, and he had a 5 gallon bucket with cut outs from the SS tanks they build, so for now I just grabbed one of them, drilled a couple holes and mounted it up with stainless flat head bolts. If it's not big enough, I'll do something different. Might even take a DA to it and "fancy it up" a bit.

From my shop

I have a box of these. I went out and just placed it on the bottom the foot and it matches up really well. Need to play with it and come up with a way to mount it, I could just cut cut the OEM pad off and weld this on after hitting the edges on the grinder. But i would rather come up with a way to mount it and leave the existing foot in place and not just weld it on. The steel is good quality.

Maybe some one has a good idea

Ordered the Camel Toe off EBay. Yeah, there are cheaper side stand plates available, but this will have me smiling every time I put the side stand down.

Just need to clean up the weld with the grinder now. Rolled bike out into the yard, lots of rain last night so the ground is soft. Works great, the bike stayed upright.

Aren't there two different versions? One with button bolts and one with countersunk bolts? Do neither sit flush?

I have a 2014 1190 Adv R & found the kickstand too long & the foot pad too small.
After I installed the "awesome" Black Dog bash plate, I found the kickstand too long.
I got my local welder guy to cut 1/2" off & replace the factory pad with a large washer disk. Cost $20 CDN!!
Looks great!

I did order a SW Motech pad from a Vicious Cycle, our Canadian Twisted Throttle dealer & they sent me a 2013 pad which didn't fit. They told me I had to wait until they get them from Germany; this was 2 weeks ago. Refund $67 CDN

Ahead $47 CDN & happy! :)

Beware SW-Motech clearance

A day spent with the virgin 1190 was enough to persuade me to get a side stand extender and I opted for the SW-Motech.

The first ride resulted in what is shown in the pic. What I think happened is that the extended base plate got scraped, pulled back and as a result the retaining plate is bent. This is what happens it seems when you're cranked over and hit a bump that compresses the suspenders.

The supplier says it's not going to be covered by warranty as the unit's not defective. He's sold hundreds he says and this is the first problem he's heard of. What epic service.

Anyone else found this?

Hi Rsser,
I have to support SW Motech on this one. I have the same stand plate and it was the first farkle I bought. It is very well made and really does not reduce the cornering clearance very much at all. I would think you just had very bad luck. A Melbourne pothole?

In fact it may be that the plate bending helped you. If the lean was great and the bump was big, a very solid hit to the stand could lift the rear tyre off the road a get you into a lowside.

Hi Tim,

You haven't dragged yours?

This one happened on what for me was a pretty mild run through Black Spur, Reefton etc. 200 km. Never bottomed out so I'd say there's worse to come unless I get the angle grinder out.

Sure, the retainer plate may have helped but the cost of sacrificial plates might bankrupt me!

Rsser - Thanks for the heads up

Your photo clearly indicates that the design of the SW-Motech side stand foot-extender could be improved. If I ever get one, I would consider grinding down the pavement-contacting edge before installation. Thanks.

Well I've just pulled it off and ground the plate back a bit. The retainer now overhangs a bit at that corner. Suck it and see.

The rear preload is as it was from the factory. I could get more clearance by cranking it up or by ramping up the compression damping but it feels comfy as it is. 77 kg rider; no luggage.
