I was reading the "1098" thread (yes I read the whole thing), and I see the kickstand is back in the news. Mine fell over ONCE but I was lucky enough to catch it. I think it's a poor design and only to be used if there's no pit stand around. IMO the problem is that it doesn't go far enough forward to allow it to over center enough for the springs to hold it solidly in place. I modded mine so that it goes further forward, snaps into place and stays there with a vengeance. But I still use the pit stand when I'm home. If anyone would like I'd be happy to pass what I did along.
