Professor said exactly what I would say. I really like the madstad pad. Great angle on the level now. No weird tilt. Thumbs up!

I ended up buying the eBay pad. It matched my bike perfectly, but it changed the lean angle when the kickstand is down from one extreme to the other ! I bought the pad for when I go camping and need to park on grass. The large footprint is perfect for that, but the 90% of the time when itís parked on hard ground it is a bit harrowing.
Well, the bike gently tipped over the other day as I was loading the left saddlebag. Fortunately, there was no serious damage and there was someone who gave me a hand to get it up right again.
A waste of money for the ebay kick stand! Is the Madstad better? Look at the pics of before and after install. Does it look like my kickstand is normal for this bike? Thanks.

Your kickstand doesn't look like my kickstand....Are you sure someone didn't shorten it?

That's what happens when you lower a bike! Do it right, shave the bottom-change the angle and weld a new foot on.

To me it looks like your stock kickstand foot doesn't set level on the ground, but at an angle. The new extended pad, being securely attached to the stock foot, has no choice but to sit at an angle. It's increased length serves to exaggerate the angle.

FWIW, I bought the Madstad pad at a "discount" when it first came out. I liked it, it appeared very well made and fit perfectly. I was satisfied until while at Americade in June, my fully loaded bike tipped over to the left, with the kickstand down, while in a parking lot. The top plate of the Madstad bent under the pressure and I had to remove it. When I got home, I tried to hammer out the top plate to flatten it, but it looked like crap and when I reinstalled it, the angle was off. It looked similar to your second picture above. I guess it's possible I bent the stock kickstand or its foot, although it still appears to sit flat on the ground without the Madstad installed. For $10 bucks, I'm gonna try the eBay foot.

What does that matter, neither are good, at all! Even in Marxist Theory (which by the way is the modern leading reason to support it) says: "Socialism is a transitional social state between the overthrow of capitalism and the realization of Communism."

Even in the slightly milder term of Socialism, why you want an authority to completely govern production, labor and sales? Have you been to an American supermarket? It doesn't get any better than that, it can only get worse! Show me one socialist state with a nation wide supermarket system that is better than the United Sates, you wont! Capitalism FTW

DB, I think you're asking me. This is the pad I ended up ordering.
