    Before I fab my own...kickstand/side stand foot extender/expander?

    Before I fab my own, which I still may do, but would like to have options and ideas, has anyone here found any kickstand/sidestand expansion feet that fit directly on the TW200 stock stand foot? There are only ~million options on fleBay but would prefer not to trial and error endlessly. Any feedback or links to confirmed fits would be appreciated. Anything to help surface area of stand in soft conditions besides finding rocks and wood would be appreciated. Thanks all.

    I had my good friend Joemama weld a big old washer onto a sidestand for me.

    drill a few holes in your bottom and screw or bolt on some .75 or 1.125 plywood. I did this and rode for years. I did one in steel on another bike but prefer the plywood

    No photo but I found the kick stand to be a bit short, bike leaned over too far, so I welded on a washer, then to that I mounted a hockey puck with three nut/bolts. Worked pretty good. Later I replaced the whole kick stand arm with one off a TTR250. That was better since the bike both stood up straighter and I didn't keep hanging up on the puck when I'd drag a leg. I did extend the spring as it was now a little short to reach the frame hole it goes in. I took a nail and bent it into a loop. That worked!

    I didn't like how far my bike leaned over either. With my bum legs, I have to mount the bike by first stepping on the left peg. I almost tipped the bike over before I started from scratch and made a complete different stand. The bike now stands almost straight up.

    Welp, it sounds like fabricating something is the only way to go. I’ll post some pics if I come up with something decent. Thanks.

    Drilling and bolting on a foot allows some flexibility compared to welding. Bigger footprint sure helps in soft stuff. Current bolted plate has turned uo edges and has silicone pad on bottom for traction on rock. Last comercial model I saw got destroyed on a buddy’s bike on our last group easy ride so I recommend a minimal investment.
