Yes, this should be a quick fix. It comes down to the type of kickstand you have and the type of bolt it uses to attach to your bike.

Most clamp-on style kickstands [http://www.amazon.com/Greenfield-Alloy-Silver-Bicycle-Kickstand/dp/B00LQFLN0E/ref=pd_sim_468_3?ie=UTF8&dpID=21g6V915NPL&dpSrc=sims&preST=_AC_UL160_SR160%2C160_&refRID=08S2FAGYPXX2YSKJGPBN|look something like this]. Follow this procedure:

# Sandwich your bicycle's chainstays between the top plate and the bottom plate (which is attached to the kickstand).
# Feed the bolt down through the holes in the top plate and the bottom plate. The bolt is typically a 14 mm hex head type.
# Tighten the bolt using a 14 mm [http://www.amazon.com/Stanley-85-753-Piece-Long-Metric/dp/B000NIFJQE/ref=sr_1_1?s=hi&ie=UTF8&qid=1461615319&sr=1-1&keywords=allen+wrench+set|socket wrench] (if you don't have one, an [product|IF145-231|adjustable wrench] should work just fine).
# Be careful not to overtighten; you don't want to damage your bike frame by crushing the chainstays.

Some bicycles have a built-in kickstand plate. (Look for a flat piece of metal welded between the chainstays down near the bottom bracket shell, right behind where the cranks attach to your bicycle frame). Bikes with a built-in kickstand plate don't need the clamp-style kickstand shown above. Instead, you will need a kickstand that [http://www.amazon.com/Greenfield-KS3-Kickstand-Silver-Washer/dp/B000AO7LU8|looks something like this].

These kickstands typically attach using a shorter allen head bolt. So you'll need an [http://www.amazon.com/Stanley-85-753-Piece-Long-Metric/dp/B000NIFJQE/ref=sr_1_1?s=hi&ie=UTF8&qid=1461615319&sr=1-1&keywords=allen+wrench+set|allen wrench] (usually 8 mm, but could be 10 mm or even 14 mm) to attach this style kickstand to your bike's existing kickstand plate.

Hope this helps!
