you could cut 2 inches off the middle then sleve it and weld it back together.

lol I ended up taking mine off the bike, and my buddy at work in the shop, heated the stand with a torch then put it on a vice and bent it into place, also he took the bottom part and curved it right so the bike actually grips better when on its stand.

Now I just raised my bike back to normal height and even though it leans over more its still safe.
