That makes since. Too bad that has to happen. I was looking at my bike today regarding that issue and sure enough it sure looks as though that could happen. Guess I'll be spending some time checking that pivot bolt on the side stand.I'm certain that the minor vertical scarring was caused by a loose kick stand pivot bolt & missing lock nut. Or a bent kickstand, pretty RARE. Then the swing arm stroking Up & Down past the kick stand pad.
