What bushings in the kickstand? There are none. If the kickstand is worn out, you replace the kickstand. It wobbles in the hole in the frame. It's designed to do so. Notice that there is a "tang" on the top of the kickstand that goes into a slot when the bike's weight is on the stand. If not for this tang, you could push the bike forward and it would fall over. The "tang" locks the bike from moving forward or backward while on the stand.

Good Luck

How do you replace the kickstand on a 2005 harley sportster

Get a jack made for motorcycles from someplace like Harbor Freight Tools. Put it under the frame, making sure it clears the Jiffy Stand. Jack it up and remove the Jiffy Stand.

Installed slammer kit on 883 and now my kickstand height is incorrect.Is there adjustment, or another kickstand available?

The easiest way out of this is to have a skull motiff braised onto the stand to increase the length, if it needs extending. It will look cool as well!

How to put spring back on kickstand 2004 1200 sportster

There is a place on the frame and a place on the kickstand for each end of the spring to connect to. With the bike on the kickstand and someone to help steady the bike, use a pair of side cut pliers or a very strong spring hook to pull the spring and rconnect it to the kickstand.

If you can't get it this way, remove the pivot bolt, connect both ends in their proper positions and work the kickstand back into position so the pivot bolt will go back in.

It's tough but it can be done.

How do I change trans fluid on a 2005 1200 sportster.

The sporster shares fluid with the primary and tranny. There is a drain plug basicly behind the kickstand. It takes 1 quart of gear lube, I use Mobile 1 90 weight.
