Center Stand Removal

Hey guys, Old Fart is picking up the center stand this week and I have an idea of how to remove it. Looks like the header needs to come down so it can clear the section at the y pipe. It also looks like its mounted to the frame. What is the best method to remove it? Thx

I don't think it can be done without removing, or almost totally removing, the header.
Either scenario necessitates removing the rad from its mounts, but not having to remove the hoses.
Keep in mind the soft gaskets the seal off the end faces of the primary tubes, which if one is not careful, can too easily be damaged by efforts to "swing" the header down a bit instead of drawing it forward.

Also, in case you are not aware, the "penny trick" is an excellent way to unload the big spring and make it easy to remove, and reinstall.

TY sir, I figured I was close in assuming the header had to come down. Thanks

Good opportunity to polish the crap out of your headers. Personally I would replace those header gaskets since it would suck to have a leak once it was all back together.
