Re: 750 K8 side stand
If your current stand is believed bent, why aren't you just replacing it with one that isn't?
Without looking into it, I assume that the stand is bolted to the frame. Look at the attaching bolt part numbers and see if they're the same for other years. That and the parts fiche drawings might provide some insight about what else might work. Another thing to look at are the aftermarket stands for lowered bikes. They ought to state what they fit beyond yours, which should provide some indication of what can be swapped.
A worn pivot bolt can also effect the stand angle. But it would have to be badly worn to make a big difference.
