Upper fender?

On my SV1000S there is a small, oval plate attached to the bottom of the lower triple clamp.
It partially blocks the hole in the pivot shaft so without removing it I can't get my pitbull stand pin in there.
Suzuki calls it a "fender upper".
Anyone else have this on their bike?
Should I notch it, pitch it, or remove and replace everytime I put the bike on the stand?
I can't se what it possibly protects.

You can remove it. No big deal.
However that's another reason I prefer forklift style stands as opposed to stem style.
Unless you're serviceing the forks they get in the way and they're a pain to use.

Thanks Patrick, and I agree, that's why I'm considering adding fork lift style also.

I have no problem using either the stem lift or the bottom fork type lifts on any of my bikes. I do not understand why you would have to remove the stem shroud to use a Pitbull stem lift.

It partially covers the steering stem.
So with it on there it's a no go to get the pin in there.
