I've also tried this, as it is the first mod I do to any of my bikes. While sitting on the side stand you can just flip it over and it appears as if it will work with no interference. Get on the bike, kickstand up, and try to ride, and you'll very quickly learn that this causes a problem.I've tried just flipping the gear cog at the motor end and that does not work. Your shifter lever will contact the kickstand and impede your shifting. You would have to find a kit somewhere to do that which I haven't found yet either or fab something up yourself with a bent shifter bar or something.
One thing I may try when I finally get my bike back on the road is find a piece of steel bar about the same diameter of the original shift bar, thread the normal and reverse threads on it and put a bend or two in it to clear the kickstand. To install it you'd have to take off the whole shift side foot controls and spin it on. Might take a few tries to get the proper angle for comfort on your foot though.I wish there was an easy way, but pricey rearsets, possibly from LSL would appear to be the only solution.
