Re: 2009 EHCS problem
I just installed mine while while the bike is on the side stand so you should be able to remove it that way too. SOOOO nice to have that feature back, thanks to JohnZ. I did him no favor by taking the pump apart, and that was not the problem anyway. The shaft was too worn to seal properly. I also scared up the seals I installed.
You can manually get it up on the center stand, use a helper, by rolling the rear wheel on to some lumber, I use a piece of 3/4" plywood as a ramp on to a 2 x 4. You can then push the center stand down, I put another 2 x 4 behind the stand to push against. Easier than it writes.
Get a few cans of brake cleaner and spray that thing down good. Mine had a few more miles but was pretty grimy. I would guess you will need a motor as that is about the same milage my motor went out. Get that Honda one.
