So... I was at a stop sign today experiencing a major FTCL (Failure To Look Cool) on my EX500 because I kept stalling in 1st gear. I finally looked down and noticed my kickstand was down. Duh!!!

I tried to put it up, but it fell down again and I realized the spring had fallen off.

I parked the bike with the center stand, found the spring laying in the street and managed to stretch it back into place on the kickstand. WHEWWW! What an adventure. I'm just glad that I was on a relatively flat street when it happened.

Does this happen often? What can I do to prevent it from happening in the future?
