Just noticed my 2012 was loose as well.

Luckily I have a handy internets to tell me what size bolt to run out and buy.

New bolt + 5 minutes of lying on the garage floor and she's all good again. Will definitely get my dealer to check it out next time I'm in there though.

Crappy day.. my kickstand broke off.. so I guess one bolt has been missing for sometime.. I was working on it and it started leaning hard to the left .. about 45.. So after getting it up on a center stand.. I saw that one bolt was missing and the other bolt had bent out and stripped the frame!!!! Fortunately my father in law has a shop.. so we warmed up the aluminum tapped the bent part back into position and rebored and fitted the hole with an m8x1.25 heli coil so I could use the regular bolts.. needless to say absurd amounts of red loctite just to be sure... After looking at the original bolt with the aluminum of the frame still on it.. I noticed there were no signs of loctite.. the bike is a 2011 by the way.. and this happened today! This is just to say.. check your kickstands guys!!

So if a recall exists, any idea when the manufacturing fix was put in place? Prior to 2014 I hope.

But there is a problem with at least some 2015's. Mine tips to the left when the sidestand is used.

I cannot say it veers, but it does take multiple pounds of pressure on the bars to make it stand straight.
