· BOTM Winner, October 2013
I have a 07 Nomad and yesterday when I put the kickstand up the spring fell off, I put it back on just to have it come off again. I put the bike on the jack and remove kickstand thinking the pivot bolt has wore out, but it is in good shape. the stand is loose and will wobble up and down a good 3 inches when up. Looks like the hole in the welded frame mount is oblonged. I have rigged it buy bending the springs so the are shorter and hold tension now and used Harley Straps (tie wraps) so they can not fall off now, it works but I want it right. Has anybody had this happen and if so what was your fix ? Thought maybe having to drill out the mount hold and putting some brass bushings in it. Any thoughts on this from anybody ? For now it is working and I bypass the safety switch because it was moving just enough to shut the engine off before I bent the springs.
