I ordered a replacement OEM kickstand pad for my XR and the place I bought it from showed barrel nuts as for replacing the rivets. I got it in the mail yesterday and just the pad, no barrel nuts. The company said Polaris had just recently quit including the barrel nuts and apologized and offered me a full refund or 20% refund if I wanted to source my own barrel nuts out. Can anybody tell me what size and length barrel nuts to get?
I think a 6mm bolt will do it. I made my own out of piece of truck bed liner. Recessed the hole so the head of the bolt is recessed from the surface in contact with the ground. Put the nuts on top so they are easy to get to when time to replace. Used a dremel tool to remove the rivets.
Forget the barrel nut thing. Use finishing (acorn) nuts and screws as Sheets did above.

The material is a byproduct of recycling - ground-up rubber from old tires. Is about 3/4" thick. Comes in a mat form to fit various size pickup truck beds. My old truck died and went away . . . I kept the bed liner to be used another day. The OEM pad lasted one year. Had I known about the "puck" shown in the other thread I probably would have procured one of those. I don't do Facebook (or Paypal) - is why I hadn't been aware of the Vic puck product.
