I have a SW centre stand, it creates no problem with the side stand. Something is amiss.

Cheers!

I looked at it more closely last night. On a rear stand, I take the kickstand and the only way to get it come by the center stand is to pull it out towards the left side of the bike. I took it off and its worn down that it can wiggle slightly. I tried to fit up a washer in there but the gap is too slim for that. So as long as I kick it "out & down" it works......

maybe Ill get a new kick stand.

OK, I think I see what you mean. The post that the spring is mounted to on the side stand does come quite close to the top pivot of the centre stand. I would think your side stand got slightly bent at the pivot. A slight rebend should take care of the problem.
