It is common for the holes in the kickstand and kickstand bracket to wear over time. They don't usually get lubricated. The same thing tends to happen to footpegs and their brackets. The kickstand should only move up and down, with a slight amount of sideways looseness. It could be worn, bent, or the spring could also be worn or bent.
