I assume you mean the fact that the center stand touches the (silent) exhaust pipe.

Yes, of course you have an easy solution.

You must remove the rubber plug that is installed in the same silencer, it has a kind of slotted washer that comes out with the tip of a screwdriver.

Once you have the rubber stopper outside, you must make a small sheet of steel, make a hole for the tip of the rubber stopper to enter, once inside that hole, place the slotted washer.

Later, make another hole so that you can attach the steel sheet to the hole where the rubber stopper was previously. Put a screw and a steel nut and you will see how it no longer touches the muffler.

I'll take a picture of you so you can see what I'm talking about.

NOTE: To make the extension of the steel plate for the rubber pad, it is not necessary to disassemble the silencer.

That's exactly what I had envisioned, just wanted to make sure.

Then I understood well, I'm glad.

My shortened centerstand now rests up on the tab/cushion  setup for in on the WerX slip on that I got my bike with.
No problem there. The sidestand would not fully retract, because it was getting fouled by the shortened centerstand. I had to trim a small corner off of the sidestand base plate, then it cleared the centerstand fine.
