If you look at both our pictures, we have different frames. My kickstand bolts just underneath my chain while yours is inches below. I see other differences in the frame too. Mine is a 2001. Unless that isn't a TW in your picture.Remember that the side stand is at an angle to the frame, so a couple inches of extra length does not amount to very much vertical change to the posture of the bike. If others are making it work, it will probably work for you, too.
