Can you bend the kickstand instead? That's what I did when I lowered a different bike for my wife. Would have been smoother to heat it, but I just did it cold. Removed it from the bike, layed it between two somethings, and hit it with a 2-lb. hand sledge. Then later when we sold the bike and it had been returned to stock height, I straightened the kickstand in a similar way.
