I've been looking everywhere for an extended kickstand for an IH. V-Twin makes one, but all the online vendors are out of stock and can't tell me when they will be available again. I don't want to use extension blocks. HELP! My bike leans way too much, since it has extended forks and a stock length kickstand.

My jiffy stand is just a length of what looks to be 1/2" rod shoved into the pivoting thing. Not sure how to describe it. It was held in with a spot of weld, broken of course (like everything else on the bike ) If yours is like this, just grind the weld spot or even cut the rod off and drill it out, then get a length of 1/2" rod and bend to suit. Mine isn't chromed or anything, just a bit of plain steel, but if I wanted to fancy it up, I'd probably nickel plate it with a homemade setup. Nickel plating is easy. Chrome kickstands are way to spendy for my taste for what you get.
