Centerstand Stops Bending???

I was talking with my dealer, and they have recently noticed several GT owners coming in with bent centerstand stops. They have reported this back to BMW and are replacing the stop brackets with new ones under warranty.

Has anyone had a problem with the centerstand stops bending out?

Having looked at a bent one, I can see how easily it can happen. I also can immediately see how BMW can fix them in the future by welding a bigger piece of metal for the stop.

Mine did it. I am waiting for the part for replacement . My dealer also says a simple weld on extension for the stop will fix it.
