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: http://www.designcorse.com/shop/mv-...ide-stands/motocorse-billet-side-stand-detail
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!
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
Seriously? Mine's never fallen over or even gone CLOSE to falling over, a little care goes a long way, when pulling up and parking.
The angle is a little bigger than I was originally used to and comfortable with when I first bought the bike but you work with it which gets back to 'care' & there's not been a problem in all the years I've had my 1000 s. Nor am I likely to have one in the future.
PS. As part of the meticulous maintenance regime applied to all my bikes, I found the side stand bolts had loosened a couple of years back - I put some low strength lock-tite on them and nipped them up - I check everything at every single service including sidestand bolts and not a problem since.
I also visually check the hub every 3K at the time I do the 'mini service' (grease if necessary) and fully service it every 6K - still have the original hub & BEARINGS heading up to 30K & they are still as tight as the day the bike was made. A correctly adjusted chain & tensioned bolts & proper maintenance goes a long long way.
Now I am going riding (seeing as I don't have a broken wrist anymore) ....... but not on the on the F4 :laughing:
My 2002 750S appeared to lean over a lot when I first bought it. A few days later the stand snapped when I pulled up for some petrol. May be worth checking the stands not bent or any cracks in the metal.
Check your bolts. I once had the same feeling ('is my bike starting to lean over MORE'?) and the concern was valid : what was happening is that some of the 3 bolts which hold the kickstand were starting to make their way out of the engine case. Kind of a gradual process since when you use your kickstand they actually get bent when they're halfway out.
I felt so fortunate I caught it in time. The 3 bots were replaced by new ones (CAG is just a call away) and a lot of red thread lock.
