Default Adjustment on jiffy stand?

My bike lays over too much on the sidestand. It sits about right if I put a one inch thick block of wood under it. But I am not prepared to carry this around with me. Is there any adjustment, I cannot see any or find anything about it in the manual.

there's no way to adjust the kickstand.

the only solutions are

buy a longer kickstand

or heat and bend the one you have to your desired lean angle.

If you find a source for a longer jiffy that fits the 04-06, let me know.

I think the 06's have a slightly longer jiffy than the earlier models, at least my 06 XL sits slightly straighter up than my friend's 05 and I remember reading that was one of the changes from the 05 to 06 models.
