Motowerks Flat foot

I really like the concept. I carry a small plastic plate in my pocket when I want to drop the stand on some soft ground.(or hot asphalt for that matter) But, who wants to carry a plastic plate around.

I don't mind pulling the trigger on the purchase but one thing concerns me. I use a small 1"x2" stick cut to length, that I prop under the right swingarm to lube the chain when on a long haul. (no center stand) This puts a lot of pressure on the stand and lifts the stock plate so it is no longer flat on the ground. I am worried that the stock plate might bend, even without the flat foot.

Feel free to chime in, flat foot owners? Any issues with this? Too bad someone hasn't developed a hinged flat foot... or even a rubber mounted one.

I use a pack jack to lift the bike onto my side stand with flatfoot attached and have not had an issue.

I have the flatfoot and have a homemade prop stand ( square aluminummtubing that lifts opposite side of stand using spool). I have absolutely no issues, only recomendation would be to use loctite on the screws when mounting.

+1 with the packjack. No issues here.
