The '05 Kat 750 center stand:
Closeup of the existing spring hook:
First I made a hook out of 1/8" steel that looked similar to the existing hook:
Then I welded it on:
After a quick coat of paint over the weld, I took the bolts holding the mufflers out and pried down on it so I could get the center stand bolts installed. Next, I cut a spring down to size and made a new hook on the end.
After putting it up on the stand, it looked like it was seated against the frame well:
