Your side stand is welded on, correct?

If you weld on a longer bolt onto the centre stand.........try to get a bolt with a shoulder long enough to go through the frame and your side stand.
Use a 10mm bolt. The stock stud has a 10mm shoulder, but drops to an 8mm stud.

You will need to use a nylock or stover nut with a flat washer as you can not tighten the nut up completely. It needs to swing with the centre stand.

Once you install the nylock/washer, cut the excess bolt off.

Cheers
Got it.
Nylock is an easy idea.
Thanks,
