I added Muzzy's and pushed the forks up one inch. It does make it a little tougher to get up on the stand but I decided to pull a little harder instead of cutting the c-stand. I have about 3 inches of back tire clearance now when it's up on the stand and it'll make it easier to pull the back tire off that way. If you want to cut your stand, I'd start by cutting off the wrapped flat metal that's welded to the legs on the bottom and remove about half an inch from the legs of the stand. Bear in mind though you'll want to put these metal shoes back on or your c-stand will have a tendency to punch thru the ground.

I didn't change my center stand either. It just takes a little more grunt to get it up on the stand.

Are there any mods needed to the side stand?

If you lower the bike, the side stand will make it stand more upright. Then it may not be as stable on the side stand. That could result in the bike falling over. So I would figure that you should probably shorten the side stand.

I did take an inch out of the side stand and welded a foot plate on while I was at it. The center stand is still stock and hasn't been an issue.
