I just started having this problem today. i notice that when either putting the kickstand up or down it doesn't 'glide' like it used to. So i wiped down the area where the stand connects to the frame and removed alittle bit of what looks like some joint grease, but i felt gritty like there was some sand in it.

Anyone else ever have this problem?

Sure. Unless you have strictly a show bike, you're going to get "road grit" in there. I pressure wash mine from time to time. That seems to help and I have to travel down 3 1/2 miles of gravel road to get home.

I spray mine with a good lubricant every month or so.
