2005 onto center stand wihout electro-hydro

Got a rear flat today. Any way to get a 2005 onto the center stand when the (non working) EH components have been removed?

Re: 2005 onto center stand wihout electro-hydro

use a scissor jack under the rear of the sump, wind it up and swing the centre stand down by hand

Re: 2005 onto center stand wihout electro-hydro

Ride the front & rear wheels onto a couple of 2" thick blocks of wood... you'll need someone to help hold the bike, hold the CS down with your foot, then both pull back on the bike... rear blocks may need to be a little higher if the tyre is dead flat.

Something like this...

What keeps the bike upright and steady during the lift, considering it is starting from the side stand?

Re: 2005 onto center stand wihout electro-hydro

My last flat, I was able to add enough air to get it up on the stand.
With two people, you can put a board behind the stand as you hold it down and push/lift it up. A 2x4 under the rear will help.

Re: 2005 onto center stand wihout electro-hydro

I pushed the stand down with my foot and got a couple of guys to help me pull it backwards onto the stand. Then I got it fixed by jzeiler..........

Re: 2005 onto center stand wihout electro-hydro

You CAN remove the unit while the bike is on the side stand but getting the nut off the shaft is a bear.
