I don't remember where I saw it, but someone cut their kickstand and took out an inch or so, inserted a bit of pipe and welded it to the upper half, then drilled a cross hole in the pipe and two cross holes in the bottom half of the stand and bolted it back together. They could have the shortened stand, yet return it to normal length.

I can't remember if they found a standard tube that would fit inside or if they had to turn it down to fit.
