help side stand problem

When I put my bike on my side stand, the weight causes the sides stand to slip sideways (to the left away from the bike) another 6 inches along the pavement. This is caused by the looseness at the pivot point and the spring. Basically when it is in the down position the end can move 6 inches side to side against the force of the spring. The spring holds it on the right side but the force of holding the bike up forces it all the way to the left at the other end of it's lateral travel. This is caused by significant looseness at the pivot point although I've tightened the bolt there to max. This is a pain when trying to get something under the stand.

Is this normal or is the pivot of my stand damaged?

Will post pictures latter.

Mine has about 1Ē of play. Itís hard to imagine having another 5Ē without the bike falling over... but if youíre even close to that, thereís a problem. Iíd put it up on a rear stand, take the side-stand off and look it over. Hopefully itíll be the bolt thatís worn & not the holes...

Good luck
