Issues with XL Banana Boards & Kickstand?

I'm wanting to get the Banana Boards XL but I'm told that there may be some interference with getting the kicksand down. For those that have them, is this true? Thanks in advance for your input.

You just have to reach different with your foot. Not a big deal. I put it down on its kickstand and stepped on the tab to bend it a bit to make it easier to access.

Exactly. Same thing I did.

One of the best mods you can do IMO. Plenty of room to move around and wake your feet up.

Love my banana boards. I picked up one of those kick stand extenders. $15 chrome piece just slips over the foot tab and secures with a set screw. The tab just extends past the board to allow me to put the stand down as if where stock...
