Some bits that fit

So a few weeks ago, I parked my bike on some soft ground and unfortunately the stand sank in and the bike took a header and clipped a solid post on the way down. The upshot was broken headlight shell, the instruments smashed off their mounts, and a few bits and pieces of other damage at the front of the bike.

What I have posted here are some parts that I have found online that work and that you might be able to make use of yourselves.

My bike has a non-standard front end on it anyway, after the engineering exploits of last summer which put in place some WP upside down forks sourced from a KTM Super Duke. However, these are mostly parts that will replace standard bits and pieces, make of it what you will. :-).

This needed a little bit of work, but wasn't bad overall: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/ALLG...6b474c4dLolTIN

Cheap [and ugly] insurance against a repeat: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Kickstand-S...72.m2749.l2649

Fitted, even with my led headlight - a little mod required, but did the job: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Motorcycle-...72.m2749.l2649

This was part of the original led headlight mash-up, needed another:https://4into1.com/chrome-headlight-...0-cb550-cb750/

I have used a similar headlight. Flung the light part and used the bucket.
Also when I fitted an led headlight I used the 4 into 1 cb500 headlight rim assembly. Had a few more bits than just the rim.
Sux you dropped your bike.

Hey, do you have a shot of what that kickstand foot looks like, installed? I'd probably go for that if it doesn't get in the way or anything, I've been doing more riding out into the sticks and the footprint of the stock kickstand is pretty tiny.

Yes, sure.

Turns out I was a bit hasty declaring "fit" for this part. The foot of the stand fits into the machined rebate on the plate ok, as you can see, but I only later discovered that the back part of the plate fouled the chain, and needed a bit of grinder attention to clear it out of the way. So it's a trimmed version that fits.

[YMMV on this, as my bike has a slightly longer rear shock, which drops the swingarm down more than usual, putting everything closer to the sidestand...]

Well I had fitted on of those side stand plates to my bike. It did fit, and cleared the swing arm, chain and all that. Worked well too, before it fell off during a ride. I never saw it again.
My advice would be to loctite those little bolts that hold it on.
I'm back to using an old cut down drum lid if I'm heading into the sticks. Just carry it in my pocket.

Yes, good call, hadn't thought of them backing off.

I just get a bit of flat steel and weld them on. Your local Pitstop does stuff like that for free normally.

FWIW, mine mostly fit after I hammered it out flat. Turns out some choad had rolled the foot up a bit before I got to the bike. I got two of three screws in, but they're in with never-say-die Loctite, so I'm fine with it. On my bike, pretty much stock except for an 04 919 rear shock, there wasn't any fouling, no real need to do more than install.

I use a hockey puck.
It provides for significantly less lean angle and much larger resting footprint, way more than anything one would dare to weld on to the side stand foot.
I ditched it out with a Dremel to provide a nice matching register for the foot of the side stand.
I leave it in the tail section.
I don't use it often, as I'm a dyed in the wool centre stand guy.
