      I thought about that, but I don't have access to a torch right now, and then would it tuck under the primary the way it is supposed to in up position if I did?

          You have 3 choices:

          Since MFGers don't make shortened kickstands, or far and few between, you can:

          1.) heat and bend yours

          2.) cut the length out and reweld it with a sleeve.

          3.) score a kickstand off an 883 Iron, or a 1200 Nightster.
