    Does anyone make a sidestand foot extension which doesn't reduce cornering clear

    Looking though some older posts and saw a gentleman with skills I'll never have have made an oval shaped extension, does anyone know of a commercial version? The standard extension type reduces cornering clearance by about 10mm and with my fat ass onboard tends to be the first thing that drags even with correct preload

    Something a little thinner on the front/bottom edge

    Thanks

    You could increase pre load a bit to raise the bike  and then let nature take its course grinding the foot down to acceptable limit.

    I had the suspension professionally adjusted when I got her, I don't pretend to understand suspension setup, unfortunately unlike the Ohlins on my my ZRX there doesn't seem to be a separate adjustment to ride height

    Bit concerned at just letting if wear down as it's not a sprung item like the hero knob on the footpeg so if it makes contact and I keep leaning wouldn't that tend to lift the bike off the road?

    Maybe if I make a new smaller top piece, drill and tap that front bolt further back and then grind the front off it
