When I was looking for a foot to add to my WeeStrom I noted in many ride reports that many different brands of the bolt on feet fell off or became loose . After looking at prices VS durability I took some 3/16" plate and traced around the factory foot and cut a hole in the plate to match it . Then decided of how large I wanted the foot and cut it out . Note , before welding it on , hold it in place while moving side stand through its path to look for clearance issues ! Sorry for the bad picture , but here is mine . Note , I think I almost tripled the footprint on my 650 . As of yet , it hasn't sunk in enough to fall over , even when fully loaded off road .[IMG]Photo & Video Sharing by SmugMug[/IMG]

Looks cool. I have an 800 and have lost 2 different fat foots so far. One was a multi stack of aluminum that simply got smashed off by a rock. The other got loose and I forgot to retighten it. My bike might spend a little more time scraping its bottom than most. I would ask you what differentiates your product from all the others? The market seems pretty saturated with these things. Is there some novel design feature? Cost?

After "forgetting" about 20 plastic ones on the ground I finally purchased an AltRider version of this for my Multi. Works fine. Need to take it off for the track but otherwise mission accomplished. Not real happy about the price. Seems steep for what it is.

Looks neat and with nylocks, it shouldn't come loose.
I've got a "cameltoe" which I like just for the comments I get
It's not come loose since I put it on 20 something thousand miles ago.

Big thing to watch for is that it isn't too heavy or it might trip any sidestand switches your bike could have when hitting a big bump.

100% I am concerned about the side stand switch but if it is a problem it will be an easy fix.

I don't get 20 AOL installation cd's in the mail each week anymore so I had to get a Camel Toe.

I don't know about BMW sidestand springs , but I have hit hard enough to crack my engine case by impacting my skid plate on my WeeStrom and didn't have a problem with sidestand switch . But to be able to use Cameltoe when peop[le ask what it is , might be worth it .

I agree with the weight.

I'll give an update here as soon as I have a sample.
