+1 on LD's suggestion about the spacer. I actually used a nut behind it and it works great. I just did this. I have had the bike for almost 7 years and always lived with it being a bit touchy, now it is cake.

Careful using high pressure around that switch for the stand....grease with dielectric grease once done.

Pull the rubber bumper off.
It is pressed onto the head of an allen bolt.
Remove that bolt and replace it with a longer allen headed bolt.
Press the bumper back on.
Problem sorted in 5 mins.

EDIT: With the greatest respect to others that have done all the drilling and tapping... cutting and welding....
removing cases.... changing bumpers, adding bumpers.... bending the stand ...
searching through junk shops for unwanted items...blah blah..

Why would you not just change the bumper bolt for a longer one?

Here is how I fixed the problem. Someone else mentioned drilling a hole and threading a bolt into it. I did this about 10,000 miles ago and have had no problems since. When the pulley cover is on and the bike is together you dont even really notice it.

I have had zero problems lowering the kickstand since!!!

I recall someone on the forum taking a knob from an old amp, drilling a hole in the stand and screwing on the knob. It was either black or chrome and because it had grips on the edges of the knob it was easier to "catch" in your heel and lower the stand. But that's just me.

Simplicity at it's best! Anything added, drilled or welded just spoils the line
