Default Added a hoop kickstand...question...

This is probably a dumb question....

I added a cool hoop style kickstand from Spookytooth. (see pic)

I did have to do a minor grinding mod to the right side of the stand to make it fit on the rear tangs just right. Works nice and has a locking position. After years and years with this bike, it took a motor to get a kickstand!

My question: I have quick release rear hub. It's extremely nice and heavy duty. But with added width of the kickstand the retaining axle screw doesn't make enough thread engagement for works, maybe 3-4 threads or so, but I want more. Is it ok to remove what I think is an axle spacer? See pic #2.
