Center Stand rubber stop

Just got back from a run to Virginia last week and the first thing I did was change the the rubber stop for the center stand because it was dragging so much in the twisties. Has anybody else done this? The one it comes with is about 3/8" thick. I found an old stop in my toolbox and cut it down to 1/8" and put it on. It raised the part that was dragging on the left side by more than 1/4". (mostly the step part) Took it out on the local stuff today and a 1/4" makes a big difference on how far you can get it over on the left side. Cheap fix for a little extra room.

Oh by the way, kicked the shi$$ out of a couple of Vee's in the twisties while I was there.

It's more fun to ride a slow bike fast than to ride a fast bike slow.

Actually I did one better.. lol When I lost the stopper for my stand I just put a "plug" in that is actually for filling a car firewall hole. It sits nearly flat on the muffler stop but still stops it from being metal on metal.
