2012 DL 650 Side Stand

New to me '12 DL650. Love the bike, except for one issue. Anyone else feel like their side stand is too long? My bike is close to vertical when parked on a level service. Feels like it could fall the other way without much provocation, Feel like I SHOULD park on surfaces that slope to my left. Not REAL comfortable, even on level surfaces. Also, I've had the bike try to roll forward, and off the stand, when parked on a fairly slight down hill. I've thought of trying to remove/grind off a little bit of the "stop" which might solve both of these problems, but it appears that's going to be a bit tricky, on the stop Suzuki uses. I know Suzuki could have done better, as I've never experienced this issue on another bike. Any body else found a solution? I'm assuming all the '12 models have the same setup.
