From my experience regarding rising the forks, the OEM sidestand for TBS 2004 would be quite dangerous in case of a flat tyre.

I would think twice about pulling the tubes that far up through the clamps.
High speed stability may suffer.
Modify the headlight brackets and mount them below the upper clamp. better yet Clubman bars.

Long time no see guys! Just posting a reference picture for those who want a longer stand on their Legend after installing a ZX shock (Mine was a ZX9R). Didn't think to take before and after pics but I did manage to take this one...

Left = '99 Legend, Right = '99 TBS

The bike looks proper on the stand now, no more exaggerated lean!

Wonder if any of these will fit a '95 s3 easily? My bike leans waaaaaay over on its little stubbly stand.

No clue about that. The Tbird,Legend,Adventurer all have a bracket that bolts directly to the engine.

AFAIK the Urban Sports models have the kickstand bolted to the rear subframe. So It's different, but not sure how different it is.
