I used to keep a tapered up to a flat maybe 8" long piece of 2x4 in the trunk of my ST 1300 to help get it up on the stand if I was out on the road.

This pre-made version is a bit pricey, buy people with decent fabrication skills could make one like this. No more need to take up storage space with your woody.

WOW, been away for the last 10 days. I guess I'll have to add centerstand lifting threads to watch for along with the normal oil, filter, coolant, and tire pressure threads. Enjoyed reading this thread and all the input. 8 pages in just 7 days, wow!

So, I saw no one has done what I've done, even barefoot, wanna work on the left side, throw it over on the right side. Wanna work on the tires, flip it over onto the handlebars and seat! Come on people, it's just a big Schwinn stingray! I mean come on..... LOL

Truthfully, from side stand to center stand, as mentioned earlier, upright it, using right foot push down until both center stand contacts squarely down, Neutral, lift from the grab handle with right hand, and left hand on the handlebar to stabilize. At the same time, lift with right hand and push down with right foot. And... ... I have many times done this bare-foot.

Yea, and I can't walk on asphalt barefoot without pain. Yea, raising the FJR on the center stand is all technique and smooth motion, if it is not easy, then open one's mind and readjust how one is performing it.

Good one Neal, have never seen one before... I see they have an adjustable side stand too. Considering what centerstands cost, I think it's reasonable.

Have had issues with my 2009, here is what I did: Get a piece of pipe that fits over the pedal end of the centerstand. 1.5"I.D. X 12"
Slide that over the pedal and it will go down the arm about 4 inches and stop there because of the curve.
It is very secure on the pedal and arm. Now just step down on the pipe and the increased leverage will work like a cheater bar and
the bike will go up easily. Once the bike is up the pipe simply slips back off. No modifications to the centerstand required.

The pipe is probably more comfortable under your right foot than the centerstand pedal but there is no logic to your "increased leverage" theory.

Yes, it's okay to live your life like there's no tomorrow, just don't Fµ©Ķ mine up while your doing it.

I had a friend who did that with his Burgman. It's simply a longer lever. It looked clumsy to me, but it worked for him.

Just keepin' up with traffic, Officer.

A longer tab maybe but without a fulcrum, it's not a lever.

Ridden wet. Put up hard.
