Bolt a hockey puck to the bottom of the side stand--cheap and works great---if its too thick you can drill out the area where the bottom of the stand fits a bit if necessary

Maybe I got the wrong bike. Alway liked these but my legs are too short for ADV bikes. I went through the same thing with my Vstrom 650. I can flat foot because the seat is thin, pointed & slanted downward. Which sucks after 20 miles. So I got a comfortable seat. Now I'm on my toes. So I got a lowering kit. Now the side stand & center stand are too long. So I spend even MORE time & money on an S model side stand which is too short. I also ordered an S model center stand off Amazon which is too long so it may be for an X model. I keep a piece of wood in the frunk to put under the side stand & I can't use the center stand. This is why I don't ride much. I bought the wrong bike. 1,200 miles in 2 years because I'm tired of fighting it. I'm old enough I must flat foot. I'll drop this if I'm on my toes. Difference is I can pick up this bike if I drop it. Not the Vstrom so I sold it. Looking at cruisers now. Not sure I'll like the weird ergonomics & I'm not a do rag guy but once winter is over I'll rent one & make a decision. This is a great bike for so many reasons but my legs are too short. It's probably a cruiser or quit riding. I hear the new NC750X have better seats that are lower. I'd bet they got feedback about the first generation. New ones not in my budget yet. **** UPDATE: 3/5/2022 I just got another center stand & it's actually the correct one. I think the center stand I ordered for a Honda NC700S was actually meant for a Honda NC700X because it's 9.5" long pivot to foot but my new one is 8.75". I'll put it one today. If I can't install the springs I'll have the dealer do it Tuesday.
I just bought my 2016 NC700X two days ago (my first non-Harley). I am only 5'7" with a 30" inseam. I was sure I was going to have to lower it, because like you, I cannot flat foot it. Over these first two days of riding I have decided not to lower it, but instead at a stop, I let it lean just slightly to the left and that allows me to flat foot on my left foot. The light weight of the bike mixed with the low center of gravity makes this position feel stable to me.
