Its an excellent product and worth the cost. Your bike only has to tip over once on the stock stand and damage a tank cover to more than pay for itself.

I have the Flatfoot and also mirror extenders and will be getting the passenger foot-peg extensions when they hit the market.

All Speedy's stuff comes with great instructions and is better than advertised.

Great products. Simple. Cheap. They work!!!!!!!

The side stand now is secure and won't sink into anything.

However, I never thought I would like the mirror extenders as much as I do. I can now see the street behind me from either mirror without bobbing, weaving, dodging. Big help.

Another vote for speedy and motowerks...I have the GPS mount, mirror extenders and flatfoot...they are all great. Great workmanship and they are all very well thought out.

There is only one problem with Speedy's stuff and that is when he comes out with it, we have to buy it since it is so well designed and just makes the V better.

I have the flat foot, GPS mount and going for the foot peg lowering kit soon.

I don't think adding extra weight to the kickstand spring is a good idea,eventually it will weaken and fail(not stay retracted) so I just use a piece of 6061 aluminum cut into a square with a lanyard attached,it spreads the weight even more and costs next to nothing,toss into the tank bag when riding.My 2 cents

I seriously doubt that the few ounces that Speedy's foot adds would damage the kickstand in any way.

Just buy it, you won't be disappointed.
Speedy's website mentions an L-bracket that may be needed if your flatfoot interferes with the swingarm but that bracket will no longer be needed as he has slightly re-designed the profile to better clear the swingarm.
It looks great, installs easily and is a very high quality item. The self leveling feature is simple and very cool too.
It's also very light weight and will not cause your sidestand spring to fail.

The flatfoot from TwinheadlightErnies works well too.

Tac650, thanks for looking out for me!!

I have them on the bike-Speedy was kind enough to put them on himself.

My other half loves them. Amazing, a small improvement in leg room and she's pleased-and I'm pleased 'cos I get to ride with her and enjoy the Versys together.

I went TwinHead Ernie and am very satisfied. $40 included shipping and it arrived in 5 days. Excellent design, light and very solid. The footprint is huge. The peace of mind alone was worth it and it's easier to find with my boot.

I also have the twinheadlighternie version....very well made, made in the good ol' USA...ie...keep your $ in this country. Speedy makes great stuff (I have the foot peg lowering brackets from Speedy). Not trying to start a patriotic/protectionist argument, but considering how many jobs are being lost here, it makes sense to make an attempt to find a locally sourced product. Just my humble opinion.

Integrity is doing the right thing, even if nobody is watching.

I'm confused. Speedy is in San Diego. Did it just become a foreign country?

Well....Arnold is running the show...lol.
I do apologize for the confusion...I was under the impression that Speedy was in Europe some where. Sorry

Saw a video of a guy who keeps a junction box cover in his pocket that costs 59 cents from home depot or lowes. Slip it under the side stand and you're good.
