kickstand lean angle

Hey everyone!
My kickstand on my s1000RR does not provide sufficient lean angle and unless I park on a level surface, it looks like the bike will fall over.

I have quite a few other bikes that lean alot more on the stand.

Is there a way to adjust?

Just paranoid
Thanks

Look at T-Rex Racing Adjustable Kickstand if you're really concerned. I'm sure there are other adjustable stands too but I have a T-Rex Racing and am quite pleased with it. Of course, no more "spinning" the bike around on this stand though.

Mine's like that too. Maybe a bigger rear tire would help?

You want to have a look at the angle the bike stands at when you have a flat rear tyre, its frightening lol
