i got bored today and took a ride up to rockeys . got a jacket and boots. when i got home i wanted to do an oil change but my neighbor was not home to help put the wing on the center stand so i gave it a try ( could not do it last few times ) and got it up on the center stand, i couldn't get my old 1200 wing on the center stand and it weighed less

Once you find a good leverage point it gets easy.* I used to have trouble with my 350 pound Ninja until I found a video online that offered some tips.* Then it was super easy.

Good job with that center stand.* 8)*

I've often wondered how folks manage to do that on those bikes, and while I'm not at all familiar with the GW, I figured since Honda found away to give them a "reverse mode", then maybe they had some sort of hyd/electric help for the center stand too.

(million dollar idea right there)

My father in law couldn't get his 1982 Yammy on the center stand (he's got me by 100#) and I went over there in tennis shoes and BOOM up n on.* There is a matter of practice and expierence... I have yet to meet a center stand I can't put up... IDK.... maybe some just need to some stand viagra... :D
