I have mine up all the way as to down and it seams to work. Try it and see if it bothers you. Also I would try to center the shift rod on both screws when you are done and use the lock nut.

cant flip it...

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.

Why don't you just try raising the foot peg up one whole. That looks like it will clear the spring.

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
