That's still normal Paul.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.

This. Also if you want something easier they make front wheel cradles you can ride right into but you wouldn't be able to lock the steering. I apparently ended up with the mv teams version of a rear stand that I love.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.
