IMHO the stock side stand is way too short on the V. I almost gave myself a hernia trying to get the bike upright off the side stand. I installed the rear lowering block and raised the fork tubes as high as possible in the triple clamps and have not touched the side strand, and the bike still leans over far enough to be stable. And the bike feels much less top heavy.
