Uprated Urban GS suspension with increase in height

Lovely bike, I was looking at doing the 70mm raise, but it's too expensive, so I've got the +40mm Andreani cartridges and a Nitron shock that will give +40mm-60mm at the rear on order. Can I ask, what did you do about the side stand? Mine leans a fair bit already, do I need to lengthen the stand?
Hi, i did change my side stand to a wunderlich +70mm. I did look at getting my oem one extended but it was going to cost more than buying the wunderlich one so ordered it through Nippy Normans.

Seek and you will find...
My Urban GS has Andreani +40mm fork cartridges and an Ohlins +40mm rear shock both supplied by Unit Garage.I’m still experimenting with the handling to work out whether or not to drop the forks through the yokes a fraction to speed up the turn in.Unit Garage recommend leaving 10mm of the stanchion showing above the top yoke.
