Kickstand or suspension issue - I’m stumped
So just got a used 2017 black/black Z650 for my girlfriend today. It needs some work so I got a great deal. I did chain, oil, replaced scuffed plastics, fender delete....but the frickin kickstand is driving me crazy. It’s as if the bike is sitting higher than stock ride height. When the kick stand is down the bike literally has to lean so far over for it to start touching the ground that the bike just about will fall over. I’m stumped as to what could be causing this. It’s a stock kickstand. Is there any way the bike could have been raised!? The bike almost has to be raised but how!? All the rear suspension looks fairly stock but this vertical link looks bent (attached pics) can anyone maybe shed some light on this issue for me?
