I put in Kouba's which lower the rear 1 1/8" and I lowered the front by 5/8" and my kick stand looks fine as it is. I was going to grind the stop at the top but it doesn't look like I have to.

Edit: After finally getting back on the road today, I found two parking lots that convinced me that I need to grind about an 1/8" off the top stop. With my Dremel tool, that should take me about 4 weeks to accomplish.
