Is the bolt stronger than oem?
I've tried to fix this problem twice now,both times the bolt was the problem.It needs to be a grade 8 or close.Both times after replacing the bolt it has broken in half,the kickstand is fine, the bolt holding it on is the problem.

not sure which bike you are referring too but I know that some KTM's had kickstand bolt issues and yes this would be stronger than stock. also if it is for a KTM, the Trail Tech stands are .5" taller which helps relieve some pressure on bolt.

Seems to be stronger but with the lean angle being so much "less steep" than with the original stand I think there will be less stress on the bolt. I also ended up replacing the mounting bracket with a new oem part. I removed mine to take out the old broken bolt and found the bracket was actually bent, too.
