Bent kick stand
Not sure how it happened but on a trip a few weeks ago I noticed part way through the day the bike was getting heavy to stand up, I wrote it off to being a bit tired as it was a long highway travel day. After a fuel and food stop it looked like the bike was leaning hard, at the end of the ride it looked worse as I was now watching it. A few of us held the bike up and another checked the stand, it was resting almost 2" off of where it had warn a mark in the stowed position. We bent it back to where it had been before, all was well the rest of the trip.
This weekend I went out for the day with my wife on the back and at lunch I hopped off, looked away as something caught my attention and the bike hit me as the stand bent again and almost dumped the bike and my wife. The dealer is checking for warranty claim and they have never had a stand bend without getting previous damage done to it. Has this happened to anyone, I found nothing with searching.
The rubber is worn through on the bottom, bike is a '12 XCT, stock height, no known previous damage or dragging of the stand, and wasn't over loaded with weight either time.
