center stand hitting V&Hs

I put my Cruzers on last night, they sound great. When I took the bike off of the center stand I found a problem. The centerstand arm wont clear the left pipe. I'm going to turn the left side rear bracket around and see if that helps. Has anyone else had this problem or is my luck or lack of it running true?

I actually have the same problem. I was just going to try and bend it out a half inch for clearance this weekend.

ditto . If you do not have the bracket, I have one that I did not use because I removed the center stand . Let me know if you need it.

I've got the bracket, the part hitting the pipes is the arm of the centerstand that you push down on with your foot. It's not clearing the out side of the left pipe.

Just checked everything out, I put a different rubber bushing from the old exhaust bracket and another washer between the passenger footrest and the rear bracket. Centerstand barely rubs the pipe but does go all the way up now. Decision time, scrape side of pipes everytime i put the centerstand down or take the stand off.

Where did you mount the braket, it shoukd be mounted right behind the rear tire
with the 2 bolt's supplyed should only go on one way...
