OEM Stand

Hey everybody. Just bought an NOS center stand, and I was wondering if anyone has the instructions? I'm obsessive about torque specs and I'm not sure how the plate is oriented. Looks like the exhaust needs to move for sure.

I chopped out the centre of my centre stand. Makes install and removal very easy. No need to touch exhaust. Like this.

Center Stand/Evaporative Canister?? - Wrist Twisters
The above link has a good picture of Motocycho's great idea and method.
When I did mine, I tried to do the cutting as square as possible.
Then I filed a bit to get the ends square, as well as the ends of the cutout section.
I coated all of the internal tube sections with grease, reassembled with the cut out section added back in, plus a "gap spacer", while the pivot bolt was being inserted.
Re the "gap spacer", I found a washer of suitable OD X ID x a thickness nominally the same as the hacksaw and filing work was.
My intent was to better protect the pivot pin, and prevent as much as possible any rusting over time.
Otherwise, crap, muck an mire is going to easily get into the tube/pivot pin gap.
Like my auto shop teacher taught us: "pretend you'll be the guy that has to take it apart next time, and next time could be a long time".

I am away for a few more days yet, and have the OEM Installation sheets at home.
If this still an issue for you later in the week, PM me and we'll co-ordinate my getting the sheets to you.
