Hello fellow 300 owners. I recently purchased a 2008 300xcw. I have been fixing and replacing missing parts over the last week. The kick stand that came in the box of extras seems to be roughly 2 inches too short and missing the return spring and hard ware. When looking at the parts diagram there are 2 springs shown. Anyone have some insight or experience on the side stands? I also saw there are aftermarket/improved side stands available.
I can only see one spring on my '08. It does have a 1/2 moon arm for the return spring. Kickstand length is right at 16.5" from center piviot bolt to the far tip of the foot.
