As a retiree with plenty of free time, I have reviewed and even contacted the Chinese supplier listed om Ebay. Other the some cheapo solutions that we all know through the years, in my case 69yo and still riding over 20k miles a year between 2 bikes, the only valid solutions I found are the following:
1. Specifically for the MY2015+, only SW-Motech and Hepco (H&B), at about $65 and $60 respectively. No discount. Both have a different versions for MY2014 and before.
2. GIVI has a model claimed to fit all years at about $48 including the typical 10% discount. It has a design with 4 plates... base plate, 2 shims, and a top plate.
3. Mastech has a design that fits up to MY2014. I saw no claims for MY2015+. Great 50% discounted price at about $18.
4. No suitable Chinese made items on Ebay  :157:
All above prices do not include shipping and taxes...

me, being the "cheapo" guy, bought the SW-Motech at full price but without taxes and shipping, at Twisted Throttled. :015:

I hope this info can be useful for future buyers. :123A:

Olie;
I know what you're saying.  :37:   You're not that cheap.
I took a chance on a very cheap copy of the real thing.  Not much shipping that I remember and it hasn't fallen apart yet.  So, for my investment of 10 bucks, it works fine,  don't need the (cheap-free) puck (that I still carry),  I'm happy.

What i liked about the Motowerk Flatfoot was with the spring below the stand,  allowed the Flatfoot to adjust to uneven ground surfaces and to the variations of the angle of the the original kickstand  :028: Used it previously on the V650.

I went cheap for V1K with welding a small foot at the base. if anyone plans of doing this, get a slightly angle plate for this to remain flat on the tarmac when standing on the side stand.

This is a bloody great Bike....!

Mastech one is real nice. Fitted one last week. Think it was 18 bucks and it shipped same day. The screws poke through the bottom plate but give it more bite I guess. Here is the link:

 Just get a washer to get a bigger footprint and weld it on, no big deal, or clean and epoxied on...

Mastech one fell off until I filled the cup with epoxy and put a washer under the top part and glued it to the side stand. Working great now. I think just welding a big washer or metal plate to the side stand a much better way to go. Mastech one is poorly made and not worth the even cheap price I paid for it.
