Thank you @rayivers! I was waiting to see if it was a fit.
I bought that foot and it was a super tight foot. Such a pain in the ass to rubber mallet in. Took like 10 minutes to get it to seat. Not sure if there is a trick.
Otherwise it looks fine and holds the bike up in the garage haha.

I also bought a Ktm rubber strap to hold the stand up when I ride tracks. The strap I bough was 90mm in length and fits good in the subframe existing hole.

Back in production days we made a fixture which held the kickstand leg vertical and then allowed us to use an arbor press to push down the foot into the leg...that Trail tech foot was the replacement for the silver KTM one which was discontinued I believe.

I was also installing the kickstand today. You’ve got to get the springs in just the right orientation or it rubs the swingarm. I also used the trail tech foot. I used a file to remove most of the plastic ridges so I could get it into the hole. It was enough to get it into the hole, but it is still super snug, so it ain’t going nowhere.

+1, absolutely. I ended up shaving off about .010" of the rib nearest the foot's top end so it went in straight, then heated the upper foot as much as I dared (heat gun on low) and pushed down hard on the arm with the foot against a concrete floor-wall junction. I had to heat it a few times more, but eventually it went all the way on.
