WARNING: Kickstand Malfunction

I went for a short ride and returned home to find that my kickstand was completely malfunctioning. The kickstand was somehow bent slightly outwards (upwards) during the ride because it now rests against the underbelly exhaust cans. When extended, the kickstand keeps extending under the weight of the bike and does not support the bike at all. I decided not to test it and set the full weight of the bike on the kickstand because it began pushing the side fairing out. I haven't been able to get under the bike to see what's the matter because it was dark out.

For a $17,000 bike with 1,000 miles on it I'm quite disappointed. I hope it's an easy fix and that no structural damage occurred.

Bottom line: Be careful every time you get off your 959 because I'd hate to hear that any of you accidentally have your bike hit the ground.

1) May I suggest you post your observation after having looked at it in daylight?
2) The kickstand is not under stress and didn't bend by itself while riding. Have you put your stand under weigh while parked?
3) Can you post a photo?

yeah... a lot of what the OP states doesn't seem right - there's only 2 screws that secure the side stand assembly. Perhaps one of the screws worked its way out or the support partially broke because I can't see it operating at all if both screws were out or it broke after the screw locations.

Warning to all members please check thsese

This is possible as I was cleaning the bike today and noticed the yellow marks did not line up today on the kickstand.

Well I retightened the stand with almost 3 full turns and the yellow lines lined up

Wonder how many other screws will be like this

Need to put some lock tight on these

May be a good idea to retighten the bolts with red loctite or safety wire them.

My bike seems to lean a little more than it did when I bought it. The dealership says that it isn't uncommon for the Panigale's to shake their kickstand bolts loose. Anyone know what the torque specs on the bolts are so I can lock tight these bitches?

What does that mean to a person that has no idea what that means?
I get the torque spec, but the rest is gibberish to me.

EDIT: FWIW, I saw this same bit of info in the tech manual, I just didn't know wtf it meant, so I figured i'd ask here.
