Re: Center Stand will not lift rear tire off floor.
Going to "chime in" here as I assisted you in the diagnosis.
I rode behind Notahog for about 30-35 miles while watching his bike handle the bumps and such versus what I was feeling (on my 2002 LT with Ohlins), his seemed to be much more dramatic, which led me to believe the shock is broken.
Put bike on center stand, both wheels firmly touching ground, when he was sitting on the bike (with center stand stowed for riding) it was "sagging" substantially more than what he had experienced previously, (in other words, his knees have more bend than before, the bike is lower to the ground).
I hope anyone with experience on suspensions will chime in and help Notahog diagnose this issue.
By the way, the center stand is solid as a rock, no broken welds, cannot "wiggle" the bike side to side while on center stand.
Hope this helps clear things up for everyone viewing thread, we need your help!
