My gear lever is contacting the side stand spring on down shifts, not so much of a problem for the steel RZ lever, just annoying but I want to fit an aluminium RZV lever and this wont cope with the repeated contact. Is there a fix for this problem?

Unfortunately if I adjust the lever higher it will mean that I will have to lift my foot off the peg to change gear.

Maybe not if you use footpegs like this:

Half joking, but might give you an idea for a solution. Just ordered a pair of these pegs for a different bike, so they're on my mind.

Thanks for the input folks,
Tacky I don't think that they are bent but I'll check both of them.
I'll take some pics on the weekend and show what going on.
