I have an 11/1981 RS.

The stand has had repairs, including the grounded area reinforced and the lowering tang is beefier.

The bushes get changed every coupla years, as do the bolts. I generally keep them greased.

Had a look before and they're due.

Previous bikes have had worse stands (all RS's) and the technique described by Disston makes it easier. Not easy mind you, but easier. Friends have had a go at putting a previous RS on the cs, with no success. It's almost an anti-theft feature!
