Help with dual star side stand

A long time ago before the bolt on sidestand was available I bought a dual-star sidestand for my KTM LC4a. It requires that you weld on a tab for the sidestand so that you can use it along with the center stand.

I have a TIG welder and minimal skills. I have approached the bike multiple times with welder in hand and the intent of welding on said tab to mount the side stand. I like the robustness of a welded on sidestand, especially with some of the reports of the bolt on unit vibrating off. Nevertheless I have chickened out each time as I am afraid of mislocating the tab and having to grind it off and weld the tab on multiple times till I get it right. Doesn't sound like a nice thing to do to a motorcycle frame.

Has anybody done this already? Any pictures or directions of exactly how this thing goes on?
