Looking for a Adjustable Kickstand? Which one?

Hey guys, my bike it lowered a 1.5inchs in front and rear. So I am looking for a good adjustable kickstand. Anyone have one or good suggestions? I have also read about people cutting there stock kickstand and shortening it that way and have it re-welded. Any one do that? Good Idea?

Any help or suggestions would be great. Thanks

On my last bike, a 04 Gixxer 1k, quality adjustable kickstands were like $120+. I had my kickstand cut with a torch and welded for $30 at a local shop.

Has anyone ever heard of a ZZR 600 Kickstand being shorter then a stock 05 ZX10r Kickstand? and it being a direct bolt on kickstand? I read a 4 page thread about this today and might do this instead of having my stock one cut/welded.
