Does any one have the part number for the bushings? I have the same issue too. replaced the spring and still has a lot of slop in it. So much that it drags on left turns. I bolted a piece of wire hanger and a compression spring to the primary chain tensionor and to the cotterpin that holds the kick stand up. it does help for a while, but it does move out of alignment after a while.

Not all bikes have bushings. My 92 Sporty doesn't have them.

I went with the pulling of the pin route, with bike leaning against wall. Not that hard to put in when approached from UP position. Does make a difference in how the springs hooks are aligned. Mine was still loose - so I took kickstand off again and beat down the tab on stand that holds spring with a big hammer to increase spring span. It doesn't jiggle around anymore when riding. I never noticed or cared how it looks; its all tucked underneath everything when I'm riding.
