Today, spent 5 hours installing a center stand. these are great bikes but what a bear to work on. Had to remove both mufflers to remove the crossover. Still had to wedge the crossover down to install one bolt for the center stand. Both side panels and doors for the tour packs had to be removed to get at all of the bolts and work on removing the mufflers. the center stand has two bolts which hold it on. You'd think, two bolts? What took you so long? Try it, if your not mechanically inclined...DON"T. Make sure you have a partner with you, it helps!

You should use a jack or centre lift. It's not a bad idea to change the oil while you're doing it, but install the center stand before you replace the oil filter. BEWARE!!! Do not use the center stand unless you are on level ground. It's not very wide and the bike can tip over. Personally, if I had it to do over I never would have installed it. It drags when your cornering and is a bear to get up because of the location of lever.

Hi Tom, I still have mine not fitted, did you have a centre lift or jack to assist you, I own a Holden workshop and Polaris workshop and still not tried it. I'm due for a 8000kms service I'm told that it's easier with the filter removed. I'm a bit concerned that the lift does not balance it but I must try it soon.
Cheers lo u

I bought the stand and it is still on the work bench it looks like a cow of a job, I take it to work were I have a centre lift jack I think i might need it.
