Heres the new mount for the kickstand and the old one from the back side or the down side.
This is where much of the extra lean was coming from.
I make sure I greased the new bolt before I installed it in the new mount.

I got my 2015 with worn out Michelin pilot road 4 GTs  I rode About 300 miles on those before I put the Michelin pilot Road 5 GTs on it.

My 2014 I always kept the Michelin pilot Road 4 GTs on it.

Suspension settings for both where the same, one up Comfort mode.

From the ground to the top side of the end of the left hand grip is 92 cm on mine 2015.
Coconuts is 94.5 cm on his 2017 and Novocastrian is 96.0 cm on his 2016.

This is a wide range from just 3 of us! 🤯

With my both a new mount for the and kickstand and new bolt my measurement to the top of the bar and on the left side in the lock position is 95.56 cm.
So an Increase of 3.56 cm over the worn out parts.

The peace of mind was worth it to me, cost was a little over $200.

Its funny just how much of a difference just 3.56 cms make.

For $200 I think I might have drilled it out and pressed in some sort of bushing instead.  Of course, it it follows the pattern of my life I would have screwed up and with medical bills cost way over $200 for teh job and still would have had to replace the part!  :)

From what I hadnt seen I wasnt sure if it was going to work.
It wasnt until I removed the mount that I found the ware on the back side of the mount.
I thought that the stand may have opened up and may have been the reason it was leaning and the ware on the face of the mount was worn some so I thought that was the cause.

I have the old parts and and have a friend with a CNC Machine in his garage he can make just about anything.

Maybe another candidate for a one time solution like shifters and brake pedals!   :745:

Always step on the bike without leaning on the sidestand but there was a lot of space so hung over too much. There enters sand and dust, it is hard to get grease in it.
Every winter I put grease inside, without good result.
Now I have made a kind of bushing, fitting firm around the bolt. It works a bit difficult at this moment but with enough grease that wil be better soon.
It stands upright now, the way it should be.
Mine is 2013 and had 64.000 km.

With my 2014 I bought with 7 miles on it.
After it had a accident I was able to find a 2015 with 17300 miles on it.
Thats when I noticed the leaning the owner previous to me must have used the foot peg to get on and off the bike each time.

I did notice that the bolt had aluminum from the mount seized to the bolt kind a looked like somebody had just taken a small aluminum and smeared it onto the bolt.
