Kickstand

My 05 F4 leans over at a way more aggressive angle than any of my other bikes, when on the kickstand. Is this normal?

Please post pictures so we can get an Idea of how much it leans.

If I remember correctly there has been a thread about this before, some members have fixed an extension to the side stand to reduce the lean angle.
There may even be longer side stands available, try this one for example:

When I park I look for a little sloped ground, and use that to decrease the lean if I can. I always carry one of those plastic bases to put under the side stand, or improvise and find something that is a little higher and won't slip!

No, download the app Smart Protractor, to your phone and measure the angle by holding the phone against the wheel nut

IMO The F4 is more weighty up top and so the stand lean compared to some modern bikes like the Ducatis will be more. Go to the dealer and compare. This is normal. If it sits too upright it will stand to fall over in the opposite direction much too easily. Someone merely have to nudge into it and push it over. Mine leans more than my Duc by a couple of degrees. Then again my Duc is quite straight when on the stand. I a weary of this and turn the wheel full left to get it to lean more to reduce the risk of tipping the right. Everyone's nightmare when bike is unattended is for someone to walk and bump into bike over to the right onto its side...or getting it stolen, of course. YMMV

Don't forget that the ride height adjustment can make quite a difference to the lean angle on the stand.

you like yours then.

I lowered my ride height adjuster by a few threads which made a difference, the arse on the bike was way to high until I did that, which also helped the stand angle.

Let a mate ride it and he didn't relies that it lent over as much as it did. It ended up tipping over but was caught by a shop window...

So to answer your question, hated it.

Like Nico's. I hated moving his bike at Randy's.
