wobbly kickstand?

my kickstand is real wobbly, its like its missing bushings around the bolt that holds it to the bracket, is this normal or just worn out, thinking about adding washers to tighten it up.

i think it's designed to be wobbly - have you ever taken off with the kickstand down? you don't want to find out if you haven't

if it were more rigid it could be more of a problem in the case you forgot to put it up and drove off

Is the spring still in place? The sidestand should only move in the direction it swings between the up and down position.

Keepin' all the left over parts. Gonna use 'em to build another bike!

the problem is where the spring attaches to the kick stand, that attachment is gouging the exhaust when up

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.
