Does anyone else have an issue with their kickstand coming up right against their muffler? I have the stock mufflers, and my kickstand comes up so close to the muffler I mostly have to reach down with my hand to put it out. Like it literally is up against the muffler and only the little knob on the end sticks out.

Is there an adjustment or someone? I know I have to fix the kill switch but I'm not sure that has anything to do with it.

I had the same issue and finally got around to working on it late last year. What I found was that the mounting boss on the frame has worn and the spring is pulling the sidestand under the muffler. My fix was to have a welder build up the worn area then grind it back flat. See pics that I took of the problem and solution: https://bikerbillsvulcan500rebuild.shutterfly.com/1009
