Well I lowered the front forks by 30mm (1 1/4") and also fitted new shorter shocks going from 13" to 12" (300mm). The bike looks better but the side stand is now to long. I'm not looking to cut and weld the side stand to make it shorter unless I have to. I was hoping someone had come across this problem and can remember what stand they used or if cutting was the only way. Thanks, hope someone can help.

cut, sleeve, weld about the easiest and best way. or buy a kickstand for a lowered bike.

Or lift it back up, IMO its pointless to lower a bike. Just makes you more apt to scrape pipes and pegs, decreases the ride quality, and as you've found the kick stand issue.
