Honestly don't even both with those bolt-on type foot enlargers. They raise an already long side stand so that your bike when loaded is almost vertical. If you are even on the remotest slope down to the right your bike will fall over.

Go to your closest metal outlet and get a 300x300 5mm thick steel plate and cut out a foot as you like with a grinder. Grind the edges smooth and rounded once finished. Cut 2cm off from the end of your stand and have the new foot welded on (I had my local exhaust shop do it for me). Paint with Hammerrite rattle can and allow to cure for a week. Reinstall. Done!

Bought this for my 701, think from Rottweiler Performance but can't remember, neither price.
A milled solid aluminium piece with a sheet-steel holder & screws.
It's a proper thing, looks good and works really well - and contrary to Goliath I like it that the bike leans over a little less, but still does more than enough.

I'm looking for a same/similar design for the 790 but have only found 'sandwiched/layered' designs which I dislike.
If someone comes across such pls holler, my thanks in advance.

Have this one on the 690 and 701.  Simple, cheap and easy to get.  Do put some Loctite on the bolts to keep it attached.  Does not make your bike want to fall over or any other silliness.
