    I originally tried jack nuts (like a nut rivet but installed with very simple hand tools) mounted to the underside of the OEM foot but I don't think they are strong enough for this application. In testing I boogered several with ease.

    So it looks like installation will require the following steps....

    1) remove side stand, not doing so will make step 2) - 5) very frustrating
    2) match drill the OEM foot with a 1/4" then 5/16" drill bit
    3) carefully position washer and nut on the top side of OEM foot, under the little gusset
    4) position JNS pad and thread provided M6 flat-head from the bottom side
    5) use flat blade screw driver to hold nut still*, torque appropriately

    Or make them out of steel so we can weld them?

    Not a bad idea! I can offer both steel and aluminum.

    John, if you have a welder,you could also add a return service or core program. You'd have to gauge some interest on that if it's viable for you.

    Since you have most of it done already.. another idea for you. Maybe incorporate it into the fender brace if it's a top mounted one?

    I just placed an order for the DR650 fender brace and steel side stand foot pad. I'm in Seattle.
