Sorry to get back to you so late... The "new" kickstand is an inch longer (11.5 inches now). I measured along the back of the kickstand starting from the top of the round mounting point to the heal of the kickstand. The shaft on the original one is slightly more girthy though.
It comes down to more girth or more length. It's a simple way to add an inch if that is what you're looking for. When I showed my girl, she was impressed with the extra length.
