Thanks for the lead Derpy. I will look into that one more if the captain's stand doesn't work out for me.

On a side note, I noticed you commented on some difficulties with the install in that thread. Any pointers about installing it?

Cheers

Man, I had to basically disconnect every part of the exhaust system that could be disconnected to get enough of a gap at the Y-pipe joint where the centerstand is supposed to slip in... if you're the paranoid type I'd maybe pick up new exhaust gaskets just in case you end up dropping the headers all the way out but otherwise really there's nothing to it. It's incredibly simple, just a pain in the ass. Ended up taking me maybe two or three hours including the time it took to figure out a way to pull the springs.

Stand

Done & done. The exhaust gaskets on mine still work great after the un-install, HONDA quality. The trick for the springs is to put quarters (or nickles) between the coils so you don't have as far to pull to install (worked great on removal as well). Hope this helps.

cheers- J

I tried the coin thing-- or rather, intended to. But how do you get it to work when it's one spring inside another?!

I ended up using a ratchet strap and the garage door frame. Felt pretty sketchy but it got it done...

I wrapped a thin nylon "rope" around the springs and tied the other end to my waist and crawl/walked forward until it was stretched enough that my girlfriend could slide it onto the post...

I haven't center stand. Installed. Coins and Freakin magic were employed for the springs.


Now my bike is sitting high and proud when parked.

Thanks again to all for the advice.
