Not sure about the side-stand, but I think it might do with a bit more length.
it's definitely in the grey area,,,depending on shock set-up,,,Rx is a few pieces of 2x4 or something similar
FYI,,,you can get an adjustable side stand and others have reverted to a 17rear by virtue of the fact that they were vertically challenged in the ir inseams and/or wanted the original lower gearing
with 21/17 combo it raises the seat circa 3/8'' instead of 3/4''
OBTW we also revert to a3.5x17 rim in rear for the off-road crowd ,,provides better cornering in dirt and i sless prone to getting bent...also can carry larger loads
