Curious. The name brand products (SW-Motech, R&G Racing) seem to be a lot pricier than those off eBay or Ali. Are they worth it you think?

A little uncertain about getting a cheap one for something that would have a lot of stress put on it for extended periods.

And how much would this help, do you think? Pretty sure Suzuki engineered the foot pad well enough. But looking at it, always seems a bit precarious :)
A lot of stress?
A fraction of the bike weight laying static on a flat surface?
I have seen or read people using plywood, tiles, any any sort of other material with success: what makes you think this is a stressed component?
Oh. You know, I am not sure. Stress exerted through sharp, angular points can be higher than you might think. But you have a point.

Suzuki didn't put much engineering in the foot pad, otherwise they wouldn't have made it with a hollow base.
Hollow base?

The only thing to be verified, once the extended foot pad is installed, is that with folded kickstand it doesn't rub against or come excessively close to the chain.
Makes sense.
