No they don't lube that so guys in LA will keep buying new bikes. You are due for a new one!

Learn from my mistake.
When I leave home I park my bike idling when I get off to lock my gate, it is a very slight down hill slope and was never a problem until I greased my stand.
After it rolled off the stand and hit the deck 2 times I learnt and started to park the bike on the road with a uphill slope.
I could not believe how much difference the grease made and that is why it fell 2 time before I learnt from my experience.

|iamsmiling||Checked it out this weekend and there was that nice powdering of rust. A spritz or two of Teflon chain lube and it is fine for now. Don't they lube these during assembly?|

Don't use pliers unless you feel like getting stabbed with the end of a spring - or lose skin on some sharp motorcycle bracket. Ask me how I know.
If you feel that you HAVE to remove your stand I have in the past replaced the side stand by first connecting the springs and then forcing the pivot end into its recess, then get the bolt back in.
A few weeks back both my stands got a few squirts of WD40. Problem solved.

Crikey, you're overthinking this.
Just spritz it with chain lube whenever you're down there lubing the chain.

Thanks all. Yet another vehicular project for next weekend.
I've got spray teflon chain lube but the only grease I have requires an applicator (such as a finger . . .)
If I pull the mounting bolt to access the inside of the stand shaft will I have issues with the springs?
I like this because it is clear. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1
