deputy5211 I was at Home Depot this afternoon, and picked up not one, but two of the box covers. The square-ish ones had notches at the corners for screws, and the round had holes. Rather than messing with drilling a hole in the square, I bought the round ones for easy use withe the multi-core twisted filament bundle. I have some in bright yellow, and will be engineering the tethering device to integrate with the pressure dispersal device as instructed earlier in this thread.

Thanks, folks, as always, for the great sharing of fun and ideas.

cfell Yup.. some folks tie strings to the cover and make a loop on the other end... Makes it easy to drop and move on the ground and retract when ready to depart... can just drop it in your jacket pocket.. or wind up the string on it to stow elsewhere..

I've got another idea for the "sidestand" I'm working on... should easily attach, give doub.e the contact patch and minimize "forward" motion where the bike might tend to roll off the sidestand forward.

Or work on "whirled peas"... that would be easier I think at times..

Fat Foot

Yeah, I bought it a few months back and is easily installed. Have not had the 95 degree weather to fully test it. One nice thing is that it makes putting the stand down easier with lowered pegs. Sure wish I had thought of a electrical box cover.

Sunderland BMW of Santa Cruz sells the Wunderlich side stand enlargement (#8500043) for $49.95. Although it's expensive, it works perfect and looks good. For me, the Fat Foot was money wasted. YMMV

rtdavew I also use a junction cover on my RT. However; I keep it in my tankbag with a neon green string tied to one end and a loop around the other. Just drop it down, position it with the string and loop the other end around the handlebar. Works perfectly.

grifscoots I bought a fat foot for my LT and immediately knocked it off taking a curve. So, I drilled and riveted it and immediately knocked it off. I then took a piece of aluminum that's used to cover a junction box and formed it where most of the material didn't hang over and it didn't touch the exhaust. I knocked it off.

The bumpers were cut down on the side stand and the centerstand. That poor centerstand. The square feet were ground into triangles.

Funny, but I haven't touched down nada on the GT.

Fat Foot

Has anyone here used the Fat Foot pad. I used to carry large sand pads, but they were often a pain to deal with (albeit not as much of a pain as picking up a fallen bike).

Thinking about getting a device like this, but was hoping for some guidance from the experienced crowd first.

TIA
