Valkyrie kickstand on Goldwing? (1500's of course)

Hey all,

I have a heck of a time finding the kickstand on my GW 1500SE (with my foot, of course.) I've been wondering if a 2000 Valkyrie Interstate stock kickstand with the extension bar would fit on a 2000 GW? The connection end looks similar (see attachments.) The only other problems I could imagine is the extension hitting the GW fairing or difference in length.

Just wondering if anybody has tried using a Valk kickstand on a Wing?

I put one of these on my stock sidestand - it has more surface area, so better when parking on gravel etc. The side effect is that the side stand is easier to get with my foot:

I didn't really need an easier to grab sidestand - I usually put it on the center stand, while I'm on the bike (I cut down a stock center stand by .75" to make a DIY ride-off center stand), so I have to get my foot under the passenger floorboard and press down to get it on the stand - the sidestand is easy compared to the center stand, while on the bike. If anything, the extra surface area of the sidestand 'foot' interferes slightly, on occasion, when riding, if I move my foot back on the footpeg a bit.
