My 2006 LT kickstand sometimes stops when the bike is almost at the top. It drops back down and so far I have been able to get it up after at least two tries. Has anybody else had this problem? My dealer says they have not had any problems with the new power stands.

You most likely have a leak and there is no longer enough fluid to raise the stand. I know of one member that had this happen on an 09 right off the factor floor - he had it fixed under warranty.

There is a procedure to repair the actuator posted here by a member in the technical files section. Just be careful and don't over fill it or you will either blow an o-ring or, in one case, crack the reservoir housing.
