Are there any differences (except for the auto-retract) in the sidestands for various models? I thought I had noticed a small piece welded on some that helped some, but maybe I was imagining it. It kills me each time I have to start fishing for the sidestand on my '00; it's tough to reach with boots and I feel like I'm scraping up my swingarm every time.

The 00 model stand looks slicker (original ORO design) and tucks deep into the fairing and its harder to retract with your foot. If your chain is too loose, the chain will touch the bottom of the stand.

The newer or 1000s has a little weld tab which allows you to easily retract the stand with your foot. The 1000s stand sticks out about 10mm further away from the lower body pan and away from loose chain.
