B175: are these feet blocks as factory? I ask because if I don't get the rhythm right likely I'll be in for a set of those 'pull-up-braces'?
Considering grinding leading edges so-as ease rolling it on-to the locking position? I can see c-stand needs them for it give sufficient clearance on the lifted wheel yet some Bantams don't have them at all.
Comments have mention it leaning forwards a tad too much others say it's non-factory it's a common dodge/bodge, problem lies at the pivot end yet I didn't notice any of the recessed halves looking worn or rounded.

Have a look at this post of mine ** Please log in to view ** regarding the length of the stand legs. I don't think the feet blocks on yours are factory. I think my stand is now at just about the correct angle.
And you are right, the angle of the stand is too far forward so you need to look at the pivot end. I've marked on the photo below the two flat surfaces where the wear normally occurs and needs to be build up with weld and then filed back. Make sure that after repairing both sides of the stand pivot make contact with the flat face of the frame bracket at the same time...adjust by filing.
