1983 Goldwing stands up to straight when I use the single kick stand and falls over easily, the kick stand is to long. is there something I'm missing here?

i assume everything is stock and your rear shocks hold air? check the detachable section of frame right there and make sure it's not bent.
WHAT IS THE SPEED OF DARK?

Right side cover removed.schrader valve in the lower left corner.check with a tire gauge.Air up by a hand pump ONLY.Do not use a compressor ever.I think I ran mine at 30psi or so.
This will lift the bike and change the angle that it rests on the side stand.

My air shocks were toast on one of my Wings...I replaced them with progressive ones..The bike sat taller and angled much better on the side stand.It also made quite a difference getting it on the center stand too.
