just bought a 2005 roadstar 1700 midnight star with 1600 miles. i am coming off a 2005 vtx 1300. my question is this bike seems to lean alot on the stand. i have looked underneath and everything looks ok. is it normal for this bike to lean alot?

Kick stand

Tough call not seeing it but, my guess, yes. They lean pretty far. sounds like low mileage on the new bike. If it sat for a while might think of some Sea Foam or other fuel system cleaner.

took the bike back to the dealer who is a yamaha dealership and found out that the lug that is mounted to the frame has a tweak most likely from someone strapping it down on it's stand. they tell me that they have had to repair this before and it can be done without comprimising anything. my only concern is that the boss is welded on rather than bolted on like some bikes. any thoughts?
