Side stand 'play' after weight applied
ok I did do some searching on this and found various info but none specific to my quest.
I have a slight concern about the amount of 'play' in side stand from when it is fully extended to when it has full bike weight upon it, which sees it extend outwards a considerable bit.
My concern is that there may be undue wear placed upon components here and in absence of centre stand a failure is a major problem on a trip.
My searching found people trying to reduce travel, insert washers etc....
I'm not actually bothered about the travel after weight added, but more so ..
IS IT NORMAL ??
If it is normal then fine, but should we be watching it/monitoring it/replacing bolt when travel reaches 'x' assuming its possibly worn the bolt through?
Any info be appreciated,
Might be worth noting, I have the official Suzuki workshop manual and cant find reference to it in there? (it may be there, I just cant find it referred to?)
