you could probably take it to a muffler shop and get it re-welded....but they are sloppy sometimes, so go to a reputable one.

when i had my old bike's kickstand shortened....we just took a blow torch to it, and bent the kickstand a little more sideways.

that's what i hear people doing.. the torching til the weight of bike bend to proper/safe angle.. i kinda want a more professional look.
Motorcycles-Unlimited gave me a great price..well i have not looked around, but i dont have the time to drop in the morning during the week..
