R18 Side stand extender pad

Hello All,
Has anyone fitted a side stand extender pad to your bike.
I am conscious of the weight of my Transcontinental and considering fitment.
At present I use a plastic disk placed under my side stand on my tarmac drive.

No but if you find one that works well, report back! Any idea if the side stands across the R18 range are the same?

In the 60s and 70s I just used a soda can. Side stands of that era tended to be just plane sound steel.
More than once saw a bike park in the heat of the day, embedded in the asphalt when the sun went down.
Same reason semis and large airplanes do not park on asphalt.
Revzilla has a selection of them.
I have a couple of these that I used for the Harley for 20 odd years.
