My R3 leans toward the kickstand about 10 degrees from vertical which is almost double my other bikes. I mentioned this as being engineered to help short riders mount and dismount the bike but that's only a guess. In any case, I looked at a couple of new R3s on the showroom floor and both of them lean the same as mine. Good thing. Kickstands aren't adjustable...well, they are but you have to weld onto them or trim away part of the stand to change them. There are also longer after market kickstands available. At least they won't blow over to the right. Might sink in hot asphalt and fall toward the kickstand though. I would prefer 5 degrees of lean instead of 10, but I think I'll just live with it.
