'77 up left side shift are all like what are in heff's pics. the foot pegs mount through the engine cases, not attached to the frame like '76 and earlier.

That stand is aftermarket.
I'm sure that has something to do with it...
I would try an OEM one or modify the aftermarket stand before modding the frame, if thats an option.
Taller shocks will exaggerate the lean.

Kickstand lesson one:
the kick stand if for the bikes weight only. Don't sit, lean or in any other way put weight on the bike when it is on the stand. As my ol mentor Jack Moss used to say, if you need to sit get a chair or go for a ride

Aaaaa Ha, very good, much like I suspected.
Take pre-cautions if you are going to do any electric welding for the build up of iron on that stop.

Looks like ya could use a new spring too.

Yea, that spring is sprung. Gonna take care of that today.
Unfortunately, the only welders I have access to are wire feed, so I'll find out how well that works

I suggest having a real close look at the frame/mount area of the frame tube itself to make sure it is not bending/collapsing.

my 82 frame collapsed in on itself and started to lean over till the stand pivot end hit the case. then the case stated to leverage it till it popped a piece of frame out along with the stand mount.

used a nice fat steel bolt to fill in the area of the frame welding the bolt and the KS mount back on as I filled it all back in solid.
I made sure it was leaned over where I wanted it when I went at the mount.

this is all after "oh! I just move it over an inch and weld it back on" it went 3 days and popped another plug out of the tube. I filled it in with a steel bolt to make a slug then weld up solid.

I guess my 82 frame is a little thin/rusted but holds up now after a slug and re-weld.
