design/build opensource products for KTM, starting with sidestand foot expander

I had a home made side stand foot that basically makes the foot print a bit larger so it won't sink in sad, grass,....you know what I mean. It fell off somewhere....Im sick of forgetting the ones I carry with myself, so...

I have a CNC machine. I'm going to make one for myself. Not for $56 like this one, better with rubbery bottom plate may be?

I though I share it here to see if you advriders have any input. I will keep the designs open-source, I will post the drawings here for everyone to use.

I know this project is very simple thing but it could potentially become a good starting point for more open-source community driven products for 950/990,... so all manufactures can produce them cheaper for us while we can make them better.

I'll be happy to make a few more while Im making one for myself and send it over to whom ever helps out with the design.

let me know what you look for in a side stand expander. do you want to be able to take it on and off,...?

Im curious to see how this evolves.

For simplicity I've been considering welding a large freeze-plug from an auto engine to the side stand.

Talk about cheap!

Same on mine. Cheapest solution there is, works well and it won't ever fall off.

Welded a big ass washer to it. Took 5 minutes, cost was trivial.


However, I do have a template for making an air filter baseplate for mounting a JC30 airfilter like the CPR one uses. You're welcome to it. Makes the filter mod more of an approx. $150 deal versus $300.

Welding a washer sounds simple and cheap... We have a solution here.

Washer I think has to be thick so you can weld it. Painting it later is a good idea to prevent rust.

I have shortened my sidestand, I went through cutting welding,...I should have used a big ass washer then.

Now I like to have an aluminum piece as foot expander.

The air filter base should be easy to make. Send me your template.
