Get a bolt that has a bit of a shoulder so any threads that might be there do not dig into the frame or wear out.

Drop,
Now I get it and know for sure I need to fix mine like you did.
Darn, better get on that.

The center stand should pull off with the kickstand in place. Right?

Wish my bike was cleaner.
I rode it just before the snow flew.
Thanks,
