I've noticed that my 08 leans about 5-10 degrees to the right when on the center stand. I don't recall it doing it before and everything seems to be straight and tight. Anyone have the same issue? Is this normal?

Mine is plumb, but lots of folks note a bit of lean when on level floor.

Same here - have found that all the ones I have come across lean to the right.

Sitting on the center stand in the garage (which is level side to side but does pitch down towards the door slightly for drainage) the bike does lean to the right noticeably.

You must have gotten one of the conservative wings. In San Francisco they all lean to the left.:joke:

When the Wing is on the center stand it's effectively only resting on two points with regard to left and right so it would not take much drift on a floor to throw it off. Even something nearly imperceptible to the human eye would do it. By the way, Wizard, that is a great bike you have there. I would say it's dead level perfect color too.

I use a 5/16 pad on the right side of my stand made up of leather and rubber to get the bike near level.

Guess I should be thankful that it's not a "left leaner."

On this side of the ecuador they lean to the right, and south of the ecuador they lean to the left, much the same as the water in their toilets which flush's in the opposite direction to ours. ;)

Now we have to move the thread to the Hate Box where the republicans can tell you that your not right!

Yep! mine has the mean lean to the right, too. And I'm a Democrat!

Mine has never fallen over. I will worry about it if it ever does. I think the factory welding jig was off a bit.
