That's a good idea; actually never thought of that. I use one of those sink-no-bobs that I've got flush with the back of the stand foot, but I could just trim it off, too. I only need another 1/4" or so of clearance, probably not even that much but thought I'd go for a little more.
I don't have any welding capabilities, but was thinking of maybe finding a spot where the stand passes the bracket and maybe JB-welding a washer or something there so when the kickstand goes up, it rests on the washer and sticks out farther.
Might just be easier to remove some material as you noted.
