Is the spring still good. Does it hold the kickstand tight to motor or frame. If not you need a new spring
Speaking for myself mines in nice n tight, its actually difficult at times to snag it with my boot to get it down.
Just last week pulled up in pouring rain out the back of a local hall where some friends were meeting, pulled up, turned the key off, flicked the stand out and got off the bike...Kerashh!!!
Laying on the ground with my bike after a fruitless attempt to keep het upright past the point of no return.!....
Ill double check in future, make sure its positively in place before lettingthe bike down....quick as a flash 2 mates were helping lift the Vegas back up, the only real damage was to my ego and the tip of the clutch lever, I reckon theyre designed to break there where the notcj is to save breaking further down, gives plenty of lever to still operate, good design VIc!
Tiny scratch on my mirror chrome and my leather saddlebags absorbed a lot of the impact,
Put the lever tip in my pocket and next day mixed up some Araldite and stuck it back on.
Lesson learned the hard way!
As far as the stand scraping well somethings got to scrape, the bikes a cruiser and fairly low,personally I'd like to raise mine a bit not lower it.
