Hornig Side Stand Foot, 1150GSA

Anyone have experience with these? I like the fact that it offers some additional height so there's not quite as much lean when on the side stand...

Grab a hockey puck for $5 and a couple sheet metal screws with washers and you are good to go. Want it to be a bit more custom? A file and saw to shape it!

Not much there to review... its an aluminum pocket, and a top, with 4 screws. I cant see how it wont work to raise up the bike on its side stand a bit.

I like the hockey puck idea, slightly better grip, wears well, cheaper. With a belt sander, it could be just the shape you want with little work.

R1150GSA Side Side Plates

I have 2 1150 GSA bikes and on both of them if I add anything to the bottom of the side stands other than a thin enlarged plate to support the bikes on soft asphalt or sand, the side stand hits the center stand arm when both are retracted. Both my stand and center stands are OEM and original on the bikes. Bikes are an 02 and 06 and I believe all GSA bikes had the same part number for the stands.

Exactly what I was after, does the stand plate hit the oem collector box too?

Response to Collector Box Contact

I have installed the Wunderlich side stand enlarger which is really a thin plate of aluminum. On the 2002 GSA there is no contact as the top and bottom are welded and flat but on the 2006 model the collector box is different with the top and bottom edges rolled outward about a " and the enlarger touches the edge. I filed a slot in the enlarger plate to eliminate the contact.

I know you just want opinions on the Hornig Side Stand Foot but, HOCKEY PUCK.......why make it complicated?
I guess it may depend on whether you want function or to look good, although IMO the hockey puck actually looks cooler and will on occasion start some conversation.

I have the Wunderlich and I previously had the Kidala foot.

Here is the issue I have - usually a foot is helpful but sometimes it is too tall, particularly if you are parked on a street with a high crown or a low curb. In that case, you have to use the centerstand to avoid the bike falling over. In those situations, the hockey puck would be better because you can use or not use it. A foot (any foot) is always on.

this is helpful, thanks guys! I initially was interested in the hornig stacked unit thinking it would potentially reduce the lean angle when on side stand. maybe just the wunderlich plate is enough

There is a reason there is a large lean angle on the bike. If you put a taller sidestand on it you will find yourself in this situation often, especially off the paved road. I never felt the need to lift the sidestand.

Do you guys with 1150GSA's have a preference between Wunderlich and Touratech side stand enlarger plates?

I've seen some indicate that the plate hits their exhaust collector, I don't have one as my bike has a Remus y-pipe and can.
