AdventureTech Sidestand Footpad

I installed the AdventureTech foot pad today. It was $30 and installs easily and fits the Versys X 300 sidestand perfectly. The bolts come with thread-lock on them. It has plenty of clearance with the OEM centerstand. It turns out that the V-Strom 650 footpad that they sell also fits the Versys X 300 as Brockie and RichlandRick informed me.

The little stock footpad is in dire need of a wider pad IMO. It is the tiniest I have seen that I can remember. Kawasaki really went all out to get the weight down.

Rick got me confused with you today when I emailed him about my foot. I assume you live near me...NWA????

Pretty clever, the mounting screws are from the top, no chance of coming loose and falling out from below.

I bought the "Chinese-cheapies", then used a GOB of JB Weld to hold everything together. Look QUICK, as this pic will disappear in Feb....

Did you have to modify the footpad any at all? I'm trying to put mine on today however its not even close to fitting. The top plate does not sit flush on the oem foot pad. I'm using a dremel to knock down the welds on the factory sidestand foot and trying to open up the slot of the aftermarket footpad. Going very slow as not to remove too much material. Definitely not a bolt on for me.

It's an AdventureTech? My AdventureTech took ten minutes to put on. No modifications to anything.
