Side Stand enlarger

Does anyone know of any decent side stand enlargers that don't cost too much, the R&G version costs about AU$80 once you include postage to Australia.


I'm looking for something in the AU$25 range including postage.


I have seen side stand enlargers for the R and GS on ebay for around AU$17, but these look a bit cheap.

I used to carry a 3.5" rounded-edge square of diamond plate around. Fits in jacket pocket and was scrap from a local fab shop. Most bike shops also have their own branded plastic or metal ones. Ask around and they will probably just give you one.

Same idea as what I use, keep it in my tail bag.
Only need it when I park on potentially soft ground. Asphalt in the heat or dirt.
Was a scrap rectangular piece of metal plate, I rounded off the corners, sprayed it black,
and now have patented it and for sale for 10 cents.

High dollar for me-electric box cover 60Ę. Attach a piece of mason's line and I can retrieve while sitting on bike.

Does anyone know if the foot of the side stand is the same size for both the R and the GS?
