Yes, that would work.

As a heads up, at least on my 2018 XC300 machine, the KTM bushing and bolt mentioned earlier are not a simple drop in fix.

Yes, the bushing will drop straight into the GG kick stand and bolt into the frame but it needs a 1mm shim between the top of the bushing and the kick stand body to fit correctly.

Without being shimmed properly and with the bolt bottomed out there is excessive play in the kickstand and it will likely fail quickly at some point in the top.

Hopefully this helps someone in the future. If I'd had known about it I'd have just chopped the OE bushing rim and bought a button head machine screw and saved myself all the fabrication time and $19us to make the KTM parts work.

You just have to take a die and extend the threads on the kick stand bolt.

Unfortunately this isn't a fix either.

I purchased a thread die and tap kit and ran the die to the forward edge of the shoulder taper. It didn't allow me to cut much of anything before I ran into the taper.

Now with the tool set I'm $54 into a "fix" using the KTM parts.

I'm going to ride this out and intend to follow up on a shim solution to fix this correctly with EXC bolt and bushing that takes the play out of the kick stand.

I still feel like the cleanest (and cheapest fix) for anyone in the future is to cut/sand down the existing GASGAS bushing and buy a button head machine screw for $3.

Lefty loosey..

Remove said part. Put it in the cupboard. No more auto retract. Lean bike against a tree or let it have a little rest.

I can't argue that much. I've done it a couple times in the past. I usually end up pouting about it at some point when there's nothing to lean it on, I forget to turn the petcock off when I leave it tipped over, or when I got to rock it back on the stand and crack the fork bleeders etc.

I'll probably do it on this bike for now until I get time to cut down and fit the OEM GG bushing.
