Default Modified kickstand

This is a mod that I've been meaning to do for some time, having already done something similar on my GSX 750 retro http://www.mvagusta.net/forum/showthread.php?t=47499 (I've included some closer shots).
With a painted...or polished stand the 'foot' always gets scratched when it contacts the ground..and if it's steel then the exposed metal will rust, which will in turn 'spread' and look unsightly.

A while ago I 'polished' my Brutale kickstand.....however along with the foot getting chewed up...it's also a little too short causing the bike to lean a little too much for my liking. Some aftermarket companies have taken note of this and made a slightly longer replacement stand.
I however chose to do my usual modification to the OEM stand...'dressing it up' and in the process addressing the 'lean' problem.

As I did not want my stand to look like it had either a 'club foot' or was sporting a 'platform shoe' the most I was prepared to extend the foot was 8mm.... It needs to be this thickness anyway to accept the retaining S/S cap head screws and rubber 'pads'.

I also machined two 14mm recesses into the underside of the 'foot' and added two corresponding rubber discs punched from a shoe sole repair kit.

Also while I was at it I machined a new decorative pivot bolt in brass to complete the 'dress up'.
Here are some shots to show how I got on....and a photo of me in my usual place.
Brian.

Oh...I hope I'm not in trouble with Noel now...for posting a photo of myself in the wrong section Hehee!

You're a genius, I wish I had even even a fraction of your turning skills. I would really like a sidestand extender myself as my brut always too leant over!!
