I have a 96 model monster and the hole in the kickstand has now become elongated from the weight of the bike.
It looks like it has a sleeve inside but not sure.
Question is can you get a replacement sleeve or does anyone know another way around the problem?

Sorry no pics yet, i will try and take some in tomorrow or the next.
Also to add that it has become so loose now that if i dont hand tighten the bolt after every small distance it swings down into the position for parking.

So the threaded hole is rounded out? If so, either tap it out to the next larger size or install a threadsert in it.

no the thread on the frame of the bike is 100% fine, its the hole in the kickstand which the bolts passes through it.

Try boring it a little and use a sleeve. Or, have it welded up and redrill.
