Vee2 side stand question

How much wiggle do you have in your side stand? I was greasing stuff and checking for loose bolts today and noticed about 1/2" of play in my stand. Bolts are tight, springs are good and nothing is bent so I'm wondering if that is normal.

When Givi Outbacks are on the bike I climb on the peg to get my other leg over so I'm a bit paranoid about stressing the stand.

Thanks

I just wiggled mine and that is just about right. I also checked another brand and it is about the same, too.
I think you will find they all have some tolerance to accommodate uneven ground. Ride on.
