My very first mod was to file away where the side stand fits against its bracket. It just did not seem to go far enough forward for the spring to hold it securely, or for the stand to hold on even a slightly downward slope.
I also occasionally put a few drops of oil on the bracket to ensure that the spring pulls the stand fully into place.
And yes, guess why I decided that I needed to do this?

I shaved 5mm or so off the bracket where the stand sits against it. OEM the stand was barely over 90 degrees to the bike. I also now use the sole of my boot to deploy the stand and finish by pushing forward with my toe, and keeping the pivot lubed so that I can feel the spring pull it into place.
