Side Stand...

You might try one of the oversized side stand "foot prints". You could add a couple of spacers between the plates and probably gain a half an inch (mm's?) Wider foot print and longer length. Both good things.

The latter is easily, remedially, fixed with a liberal lubing of the chain, but with the full load of luggage the side stand does not adequately support the bike. We've been running in "Street mode" most of the time and the bike performs well there.
