Whoops! When I left this morning the kick stand felt a little loose but nothing I really thought about till I was moving. I'll check it out at the gas station. I put it down and I'm missing a bolt and the other is loose. You can also see that the wiring for the switch is a bit gummed up. Thoughts? Do I just get another bolt and tighten it back up and then electrical tape the wiring?
A new search with "side stand" gave me more results. I'm calling now to see if my 2011 needs replaced for recall or not.

hey guys my first post here. i got a 2012 bluefire s1k and the kickstand completely fell off when riding! i took it to a dealer near me and they havent touched it for 3 days because they have to send pics to bmw first and see there response before they make repairs. they said they never had something like this happen. first bolt missing and second bolt stripped the threads in the frame. there acting like im the only one in the world with this problem. seems like it may be a real problem they havent gotten a response yet from bmw im missing out on these nice days
