    Kick stand question

    How much lean is too much lean when on a kick stand? Can this be adjusted?

    I think my 2001 intruder leans a bit to much when on the kick stand and want to get her to stand up a bit more.

    Is the bike leaning too much or are you just not wearing one of your shoes?

    usually, caused by metal fatigue in the stand mount, new mount can take care of it

    I dunno...it's always seemed to me cruisers & the such lean A LOT on the sidestand. There's been many times when I seriously thought my Street Glide was going over.

    After looking at it more closely it may be jsut the cruiser lean. this bike is also low so it exaggerates it more i guess.

    Thanks!!
