Probably just my ignorance, but did all the 851/888 bikes have a flip-up sidestand? My SP3 hasn't - should it? Not that I'd change it.

Question Drooping mirrors...

I think this has been covered before - is there a fix for "drooping mirrors" on an 8xx? I vaguely recollect you need to put a washer in the joint or something.
