When my jiffy stand is in the up position it's loose. It stays up but has 1/2" or so of play. Should I tighten it or is this normal? The rubber stopper is missing if that matters.

Lube it at the pivot. When it loosens up it's going to rattle against the primary because the snubber is missing. Make sure the spring isn't bent too.
I use lithium grease for the jiffy stand.

Get a new snubber and a new spring if necessary but definitely not just the spring. If I remember correctly, back in the Evo days a few chaincases (Softails?) got cracked when the jiffy-stands hit them repeatedly. +1 on the lithium grease.

It's an 03 Ultra
Is the snubber the litter rubber ball looking thing?
