it looks like the short end of the spring would not connect to the aftermarket kickstand clamp.
so the only way the spring connects is the way he currently has it.
try moving the transmission connector forward about a half an inch,hopefully it wont hit your lower fairing.That will lower your shifting clearence.
You'll also have to adjust that shifting rod if possible.Looks like it's pretty well at it's longest length though.
If you have a sears hardware or a GOOD old fashioned hardware store you cn get a spring that has a longer hook with shorter but a little thicker coils I know sears has tons of springs and little stuff like that .Jake
