Ride height adjustable?

Hi. I have a 1996 CBR900RRT. The side stand that it came with was a bit short, causing the bike to lean over a lot, so I bought a used 'stock' item. This is much better but the bike seems to stand a little upright now. Do we feel that they do indeed stand up a bit or is it likely someone has lowered the ride height and if so, how is this done? BTW the forks are flush with the yokes.

The previous owner may have swapped the original 16” front wheel for a 17. Which is a really popular mod but it does make the bike lean over a bit on the side stand. Carrying a small block of wood under the seat will do the trick.

Ah yes. I forgot to mention that it has a 17" wheel. The stand that came with it is approx 1cm shorter and the weld looks blobbier than the replacement stand which is why I thought it may have been shortened.
