Kickstand

Hi Guys, just a quick one. I picked up my F4 Brutale 750S yesterday and I have no confidence in the kick stand keeping my bike upright when parked. It just seems to have to much of a lean to it. Is this normal. Everything looks OK, nothing is bent.

I always have the bike on the side stand when I climb aboard. I'm not the shortest bloke in the line-up but despite my greatest efforts it does seem to place a bit of sideways strain on the sump. This makes me wince a little each time.

This of course could be age related . Maybe younger guys find it easier to get a leg over ; ) and without wincing ha ha

Anyway my point is that I believe this is the action which will shove the sump to the right a little each time and I don't see leaving the bike on it's side stand having a major influence, however I doubt if it helps once the plate is loose..But that's just my opinion..

I checked the sump bolts on a low mileage engine ( circa 800 miles ) . They were all loose..some I could undo with my fingers...So that bike slipped through Quality control at the factory, Road preparation at the dealership in UK and it's first service without being spotted and rectified.I however, rank amateur that I am did spot it and did rectify it by re- torquing them .Hmmm makes ya think dunnit ?

Thanks for all the replies. I leave the side stand down when I'm getting on the bike but I don't put any pressure on it, I always use the POS Paddock stand when parked in my garage, I've got to look at getting something easier though.
I find when I put my stand down all the way to the stopper it moves back about 5 mm. This puts it at a point that if I'm not careful when I get off the bike and the stand is touching the ground any movement of the bike going forward will kick the stand up, I almost dropped the bike because of this. This has only happened once and I won't let it happen again. I've only had the bike a couple of days and that's on of it's traits that I almost learnt the hard way.

I learned the hard way to leave the bike in gear when it's parked and to always grab a fist full of front brake lever as I climb aboard..that way she can't roll forward as you get on.
