The other problem was that the locking tab on the stand was worn down, so I very carefully welded it back into perfect rectangular shape. So now even with worn bushings the stand barely moves back and now firmly locks in place.
I have attached a picture showing the bushing location as they where on the bike, first question - are the bushes in the correct location? (Top one sitting on top of upper stand frame and lower one sitting on top of lower stand frame) and second question, does anyone have the part number for these crappy bushings? Cheers.

My V-Rod only had 4000 miles on it when I purchased it and the jiffy stand made me nervous at first. It never folded up but, it sure went far enough to concern me.

Here is the part number for the bushings:
