I've got the Weld86 bash plate and side stand relocator:

Its the heaviest duty plate I've seen, and the relocator keeps the side stand in the stock location. The quality is outstanding !

Does the Weld bracket relocate the sidestand or does it just beef up the original mount location?

Beefs it up by distributing the mount points across the length of the plate (4 bolts), once of which is the frame/centre stand mount, but keeps it in the stock position.

I've been happy with my CJdesigns one. Though at times I wish it were just slightly shorter.

It does seem to make the kickstand easier to use for some reason too...

Here you can see the entire thing under the frame.

So there was this italian guy who did something similar like the CJ version but with a connector to the footpeg and not the subframe.

were's his posting on this? Can't find it anymore...

For me without a question of a doubt: CJ designs for the side stand relocation. It is the only one out there that truly keeps it away from the engine. It may locate it back slightly but that is not an issue at all. The bike is fully loaded and you can mount it using the left footpeg, helpful for shorter people that cannot kick their leg over luggage. Beefy design, 15 minutes install and without a doubt solid and did I mention does not have any contact with the engine. BD makes a great skid plate which I use also, but didn't want to go with their side stand relocate bracket as it still attaches to the engine, along with the other one. I did see a photo of a guy who welded a plate to the frame and used that. Another option if you're so inclined. CJ design is helpful, fast shipping, and worth the extra money in my opinion!!

Take a look here also:

These are Javier's pictures from his solution. I bought the bracket from him and drilled two holes. Also bought that PMB stand and it worked perfectly for two years I had the SE. On a weekend trip two weeks ago, I rode with the guy who bought my SE back in 2010. Same bracket and same stand still in excellent condition and worked as it should do.
The PMB stand is very slim and doesn't stick out as the original one. That was the whole reason why I did it because I used the SE as a real enduro bike (and raced with it). The original stand was touching the sidewalls in the deeper ruts too often, so this PMB option solved all things.

Javier can probably fabricate more brackets (my guess).

But I think for shorter people putting the stand down first would be of great value. Especially when the bike is loaded with gear. The photos do not show a 'tab' to put it down with your foot..... Looks clean though....

I really appreciate the replies to my OP. After evaluating the different options I went with the Weld 86 side stand reinforcement and the Weld 86 skid plate. Both are high quality, the price was very good, and both products installed without any issues.

This forum has years of experience and thousands of miles riding the KTM 950/990 and it shows in the depth of advice when a member asks a question. Thanks.

like Terlingua's / Blackdogs ORIGINAL Design was 3/16" thick,
While Weld86 brace is a full 1/4" Thick & I have his unit

I just wished Weld86 made a Skid Plate for the SE
