the foot really doesn't have anything to do with it.
Unless the bike is sinking into the asphalt. In which case, a crushed soda can under the footstand will suffice.
The bike is unstable because of the length/angle of the stand. Our bikes are alot more verticle when parked than other bikes. You can compare lean angles on any of the other bikes and see that the Honda stands almost completely straight up, where as many bikes lean alot more to the left.
Shortening the stand will give you more lean to the left, but because of where the stand is located, shortening the stand will make the bike more likely to tip over to the left as well since the stand is almost at the very lowest point on the bike already.
