I have a question: My kickstand is in the "up" position but is not all the way up. And when it is in the "down" position, it is too far forward. Once I get the kickstand removed, is there a way to correct this? Has the bushing rotated. Is that even possible? Like to know before I go and pull this thing apart.
In Maine, rust is original equipment.
There's a triangular piece with notches that the end of the kickstand rubs up against, there's pins in the kickstand that use these for alignment it may be possible it was assembled wrong. I believe I fixed one like that one time but it's been awhile. Pop that triangular piece out and try a few orientations.

I have tried many of the methods previously listed but still can't get the pin to come out. It gets really loose but seems like it is still catching on something. How much pressure is used to compress the spring? I am using a 100 lb vise and have tried big channel locks also. My will not stay up. Does anyone have a close up shot of the removed pin? Could it be turned wrong or flanged out on the end? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
