Question Jiffy Standing

Do you have the stock jiffy stand or have you modified it or replaced it with a longer/shorter one?
A long time ago,I found that if I had a passenger or luggage/pack on my pillion pad, I couldn't get my heel under the primary to put my kickstand down. On a few road trips, I had to get one of my friends to come over and put it down for me, until I got the bike unloaded.
I tried a few different extensions and finally used a "barefoot" (goes over the headlight dimmer button on the floorboards) that I had a'73 Nova I had bought new. Ground flat the the dimmer switch retainer, drill 2 holes in it, and threaded 2 holes int the Jiffy Stand. Has worked great since.

I have a longer one because I raised my bike about 3.5 inches.

I bolted on the # 50462-11 extension. That's on my '15 CB.

On my '13 '72' and '05 Custom (same thing, really) I had the # 50250-04 extension.

Put on a longer one, when I did my suspension, even with that it still leans a bit much.

Its hard extending my jiffy stand.
Sometimes I have to pull it down by hand. Not very safe

Used a hockey puck. Works just fine.

My bike leaned over too far, so I bought a 2" extended side stand (meant for Sportsters with extended forks). Works great!

If it ain't broke, don't fix it (especially if you don't know what you're doing). Most Sportster problems are owner-induced.

Default Shortened kickstand

When I went with the Paughco frame the bike was a lot closer to the ground. I got the inch shorter than stock kickstand, but still not enough. I had to grind the stand down where it met the ground and still had to torch an additional bend.

This.

I have a stock one off a taller R-model to match my suspension changes.
