Don't mess around, weld a bigger foot on it. I have larger plates on my Tiger, Dominator, and NX125. If you don't weld, it won't be too expensive. My Tiger has a 2"X3" oval plate replacing the original. You need to watch the clearance on the swingarm or it will clunk when you hit bumps. It has saved me many times!

Tiger Stand Plate

If you don't want to go down the welded route, I made aplate from 2inch box section aluminium (from a window frame upright, as I'm too tight to buy stuff) and then drilled and tapped it to fit onto the stand with Allen bolts, not Touratech but it has been on the bike for 25,000 miles without problem.

I think I have managed to attach a piccie, but if not email me and I will send you some.
