Side stand

Hey gang, heads up.
I was putting my new levers on the other night and when I went to test ride it, I noticed the side stand was falling off.
Wifey had just got back from a ride and hadn't noticed it , but she is still new to riding and is focused on other things, so no biggie.
Anyhoo, two 14mm bolts hold it on, and you cannot get them all the way out as the cat is in the way.
I backed the rear one out as far as I could and squeezed some locktite on the exposed threads and cranked them both back in.
Not sure if this is an issue with all, or just assembly on mine. There is no lock washer or locktite on them from the factory, which is surprising, so you may just want to double check yours

This is a common problem.. Just tighten them up...

Hi Hoover,

Thanks for the heads-up. I just checked my side stand bolts & they are tight-as-buggery so hopefully yours was an isolated case.

Regards,

Phil.

This just happened on mine this weekend. One bolt is actually missing! Anyone know the exact size of the bolts on a 2015? Looks like the 2014 manual calls for two stainless steel "HH COLLAR SCREW M10X1X25"

It will be the same as the 14. Was it the front one?

Yeah, the front one is missing. The rear one was incredibly loose.

The 2015 manual (haven't you gotten one yet?) lists the side stand bracket bolts ("screws", it calls all bolts) as M10x1.25. Also says they should be secured with Locktite 243 (blue).

They should practice what they preach. No Locktite on mine. Is now though
