Does this Kickstand look okay?

Since I've owned the SH, frequently I pivot the bike around in the garage on the kickstand. Yesterday, while I was adjusting the chain, I thought the bike was leaning over a bit too much, so I checked the kickstand and it seems to be bent. I figure I'll need to remove it and pound it back straight. Is anyone's like this? Anyone's bent even more and still works?

You might want to check to pivot for deformity. If the strut is straight and the bike seems to lean too much, then the spin may have caused premature wear. When retracted grab and wiggle the strut. Excess play will be obvious if it is there.

Hey Justinity, I'd be more worried about that chain than the kickstand. Looks like a brand new sprocket, but a rusty chain?

Yeah I have the whole set, I just bought the motion pro tool to do the chain.
I was working on it little by little.

can you describe the some of ancillary benefits of the foot peg air foil mod? keeps foot warm during cold rides, keeps foot dry during rain events, protects boot from large insect collisions, saves boot road rash during motogp lean dragging turns, looks cool, are some of the benefits I can think of.
