Re: Close call, my mint 09 almost fell on the poor excuse Yamaha calls a kickstand
Just use a medium bristle brush when you wash the bike and clean the crap out of it. I find that I get sling from my chain on my stand so I clean it with the rest of the bike..The spring can get covered
As per the Yam manual they have this in there for periodical maintenance
"Lubricate the pivoting point and metal to metal moving parts"
Don't worry about removing it. There are wires connected to it. You can clean it just fine attached to the bike.
