Sixty-four cent! plus tax. Most likely something they had lying around the workshop
I thought that's what it might have been. Just too simple for my pea-brain.

I just might cut up an old car tire and glue and rivet it to the kickstand footplate.

Mdaniels4 One thing I like about the madstad pad is that even on soft ground it distributes the weight really well. Although I do have to be more cognizant of pulling into parking spaces with a subtle slope. It will raise it enough to be somewhat unsteady depending on the terrain of the street. Backed it into a space the other day and didn't notice the slight uphill slope. So turned it around to face in and was much better.

you have suspension issues if your bike is closer to 90 degree angle! The madstad pad will push it ever so slightly more vertical.

dabsdog My 2015 with the rear spring tightened leans about the same as Rebel's. The Ebay foot adapter jacks it up a little but not a problem.

Nope, bump up the preload and the problem is solved! Your bike is six years old, coils do settle. Besides, from factory these bikes are notoriously preset over sag(too much). Chances are you are bottoming out as well if you ride it a lot and on various terrains. Sag, bottoming out, preload and suspension tweaking is all over this forum, check it out.

Ricksctx I didn't know anything about the leaning of this bike. So when I picked mine up both the salesman and myself went over the check off sheet. I'm pretty sure one of the questions I asked him was, "Is that suppose to look like that?" Meaning the lean angle. Inside the showroom with all the other bikes packed together you couldn't tell.
