shorter sidestand

does anyone make a shorter sidestand for the brutales that would fit the 2010 version of the bike?

i ask because my brutale was lowered about .75 inches and now the sidestand put it close to vertical on any normal street.
thanks

My 1090 is still set up stock and the triple clamp sits on the 2nd ring down. Hope that helps

thanks that is the 2nd ring down on the fork tube when you are looking at the bike from the side?

in other words you see the second ringline down from the top at the thinnest part of the triple clamp around the fork tube?
