Sidestand Install ??

I removed the sidestand to clean it and grease the bushing. It felt tight like it was corroded, so I thought a little cleaning might help.

I am trying like heck to put it back on without success. There is washer in there and it is an extremely tight fit. I can't get it to go back on no matter what angle or approach I try.

Any tricks or advice? Do I dare try and widen it. It seems pretty loose already.

I may have to install without the washer and ride it to my local bmw dealer and have them do it. Or maybe while it is off, I should take it to a welder and have the side stand extended.
Take Care, -GrizzLee
