I had an accident because of this. Last Friday night I wanted to fix the loose kickstand(had a ride Saturday morning) and I couldnt get access to the bolt when its on my paddock stand(bursig type - motomfg), so I put it on the loose kickstand, it was loose, not fallen apart and went under there to tighten it.
Only one out of the 2 bolts was loose. Guess what happened next? I keep my hand there to feel the bolt and it comes off into my hands
The threading on the bolt was all gone.
The bike was standing on the other bolt now, and the weight of the bike, slowly moved the whole kickstand forwards, and the bike crashed onto my chest, bruised my shoulders and neck very badly, the rear tire choked me.
Nobody at home except my mom, who couldn't even move the bike, so I squeezed myself out slowly. Guess what was the only thing in my favor? My frame slider didnt let the bike fall 100% on me, that was the gap I squeezed out through. Those were life savers.
Had to rush to ER, very bad pains, but Xrays confirmed no crackedbones and Doc said NO punctured lungs or anything - just very compressed ribs and no proper sleep since then. I am fine when Im standing and sitting, just if I lie down to sleep(weight on neck) it hurts really bad and cant lift myself up out of the bed. No riding since then obviously, any little stretch and the ribs hurt like crazy and so does the neck. Painkillers all day and night.
Everyone please loctite those things asap. And dont lube the kickstand ever IMO.
