Some time ago while buttoning up my 03, I noticed that the pin on the triangle on the left side did not properly engage the grommet in the body panel.
Previously I had replaced the pin with a 1/4-20 nut & bolt (& glue) as the plastic pin had sheared off (common issue).
I had attributed the miss fit to an improper repair by yours truly tongue

Today I revisited the issue & discovered that the Center Stand lift handle’s bracket must have bent slightly back/towards the rear of the bike & thus not allowing the triangle to be in the proper position thus causing the pin to not properly engage the body panel grommet.

A few strategic smacks on the extended handle with my palm corrected this issue.

Hope this helps someone else but use with caution & @ your own risk.
