My 2002 Ultra Classic seems to lean on the kickstand more than others do...It is making me very nervous when I park it and have to be carefull where I park...any advise.

Thanks

welcome to the forums

I still get that feeling you get when you've put the stand down, lean the bike over and get off, just to see it move a couple of inches until the kick stand stops.

As long as the stand is in the fully extended position, there's a tab there that prevents the kick stand from collapsing. At least there is on my '10 Classic

edit - what I posted doesn't appear to related to what you're asking about. One guess I have is it bent?

the tab can wear out, allowing far more movement than there should be. more common on older bikes, but still a possibility on a newer one. put it on a stand, pop the kickstand nut and make sure the insides of the tab are square like they should be.

If it is as you say leaning more than other similar Ultra Classic, then something is wrong and should be checked out immediately. That's too nice a bike to have it on its side even briefly. And for added stability, I often leave the bike in gear. I don't want my bike going anywhere without me.
