    The left hand switch control on my Funduro is loose. I have tightened it as much as I can but its still loose.

    hi whilst cleaning my bike I noticed a lot of loose play in the side stand, if you extend the stand and lean the bike on to the ground the bike continues to come towards you after the stand touches the ground. Is this worn or is it supposed to be like that ? thanks stuart.
