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.
