Since I bought my used 2003 R6 the shift lever has been set really high. When i went to adjust it, it started catching on the kickstand spring when I downshifted (I think the lever is bent). So I bent it back out a little bit, and I took the rubber sleeve off the kickstand to give it that extra 1/8" of clearance. Is there any reason removing that sleeve is a bad idea?

I have the same year as you, and had the same problem as you.

Just bend it a little further out and it wont give you a problem again. If you really want to bend it, take it off, stick it in a vise, use a small torch on it, and bend it after heating it up. That was what I did and never had a problem since. It may have been overkill, but it had pissed me off and I wanted to be sure it never had that problem again.
