My 2015 kick stand spring broke

I was finished clean my bike then i was so stupid i rolled my bike forward while kick stand was down and i was expecting it to go up its self and 2 spring came off entwined together. So i have no clue where it came from. Will upload picks tomorrow(i was so mad i didn't want to deal with it). And I'm asking fellow 2015 klr folks to take pic of there kickstand and spring for i can see what i f??? up. Ty.

Here is the parts fiche diagram: 2015 Kawasaki KLR650 (KL650EFF) Stand(s) | CyclePartsNation Kawasaki Parts Nation
It shows only one spring just like my 2008 and my 2011.

Any chance your two springs look like halves of the one as in the diagram, but broken in half?

Yup, springs are the same. But both are together. Not broken in half because both sides have hooks on them(except one, can tell it broke off)

I have a 15, I will go take a look. Do you still have a spring on the kickstand?

Okay, yes, they are two springs. They are coiled together with 2 hooks on each end. The hooks face toward the front of the bike, with the longer hook on top. Thats with the kickstand down.

Can't you just put them back on? Why the replacement? Did they break? They might have just slipped off. It Shouldn't be that hard to get back on. I'm thinking its going to be easier with someone holding the bike while to get the spring on with the kickstand up, as thats a more relaxed position for the spring. Again, then the longer hook will be toward the front of the bike and both ends of the hooks will then be facing down.

One of the springs hooks did break. My local stores may not have a exact spring so i might well replace the whole thing.

Ahh. The part number in the above post appears to be correct. And when you zoom way in, you can see it is infact a double spring.

The springs on my 2008 and 2011 are double as is yours.

Replacing the spring is not as difficult as you might think. I did it several years ago when I took the stand off for some reason. I don't remember the exact technique, but mainly it is just a matter of working at it.

I either used some vice grips and a screwdriver to stretch it or I took the pivot bolt out, hooked the spring and then worked the bolt back in.

The Official Kawasaki service manual is no help. It says "
Hook the spring [E] so that face the long spring end upward"
