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
