This is NOT an oil thread. :dance:

Just before I left for vacation, I liberally swabbed the kickstand pivot with Moly Lube...because I didn't when I serviced the bike, and I figured, what the heck, it's something to do.

Put the bike on the sidestand today for the first time since I did that...nearly blew out my hipjoint it moved so easily!

Since I got the bike used, there are little things that I don't know are incorrect (like the effort it takes to use the kickstand), so it was a nice surprise. I'm sure I looked pretty odd, straddling the bike in the parking lot, extending and retracting the kickstand while laughing maniacally.

If not the giggling et al, I am certain other would have thought you odd for some other reason... Just saying' ;)

I guess I ought to lube my side stand tomorrow when I dive back into the LT to square away the FD/propshaft mating so I can start riding again.
