OEM Center Stand

For those of you that have installed an OEM center stand do you have a trick for fitting the exhaust back together? I am having one hell of a time getting the bottom exhaust back into the Y Pipe and just need to know if there is a trick to it. Thanks a lot.

I used lots of wd40 and a rubber mallet.

That whole install is a real pain in the ass, why they have you pull off the rear tail section is so dumb.

i just cut 2 inches out of the centerstand and slipped it past the y-pipe. The hinge is sturdy enough to handle the little bit of tubing that's gone.

^Damn that would have been a great idea if I knew that yesterday.
I guess I will have to keep my WD-40 Rubber mallet approach then. I thought the removal of the rear section was dumb too, but I did it just in case my foresight was less useful then the instructions.
Any tips for getting the bigger of the two springs on? Got the little one on NP but like the exhaust the big one is becoming a PITA.

Got it done. I slightly screwed in the two bolts that hold on the cans in place. Then I stood up and pulled up on the exhaust with one hand banged on the bottom of it with a rubber mallet it finally went into place. I guess yesterdays beer didn't help my judgment. I used a small torques head screwdriver and slowly pulled the big spring into place. Everything is perfect now. Great install. If I wasn't so stupid yesterday it would have been a 1.5hr job.

I can say that I've removed my front wheel at least 5 times using my center stand. PHOBMAN center stand that is. No problems at all.

Just wanted to raise my post count.

I've never had a problem with taking both wheels off with the OEM stand.

Why get the oem centerstand?

I bought the sw motech center stand specifically because I did not want to deal with having to mess with the exhaust. I have also been able to remove both wheels with the centerstand and used a crate to support the front forks.

I guess for a selling point.....I don't really care it is on there now, it looks good and it works great. As I said my two beers, 417 Small Batch I.P.A from Breckenridge Brewing Company at a measly 9.2% alcohol content, probably didn't help my thinking much. Would of had it done in 1.5hr and never would have to start this threat. Mods feel free to delete if you want to.....
