It's definitely binding. I haven't had a chance to take it apart yet, but I'm surprised this can happen with the spacers in place.

Guess I don't know my own strength!

i had the same issue with my Murph's Stand after re-reading the instructions on-line I realized I had the bushings installed from the wrong side, try flipping them, the flange of the bushing needs to go torwards the inside of the bike if I am remembering correctly

Now that you mention it.....I had to do the same thing. I was tempted to file off some of the stand so that the bushing would stick out a little more, never did it though.

If it's a 'wear-in' issue, it's likely because whoever designed it did not take into account the thickness of the powder coat.
Often the mockup is done with raw steel, the bushings are 'made/fit' to that scenario and later the powdercoat is applied to the non-mockup unit making the fit a bit too tight...

Funny thing is it went in easily. It was only after I snugged up the bolts that it started looking like this.

And yes, the bushings went in the right way round (in to out)

I'm sure it'll loosen up, but until then I'll have to get off the bike every time and kick it up into place. I don't expect to use it much, so that won't be too much of a hardship I suppose.
