Re: Two questions
Search the site for EHCS (electric hydraulic center stand) for more info and trouble shooting / repair.
Most probable problem from what you describe is that the motor has gone out. A honda starter motor is the most used replacement. Other than that, the unit may be low on hydraulic oil, but you would hear the motor running if that were the case.
You can get her on the CS by rolling the rear tire on a 2x4 (I made a ramp with a small piece of plywood) and with a helper push down on the CS. I placed another 2x4 across the CS to push against.
It is easy to get the EHCS unit off the bike, and it doesn't have to be on the CS to do so.
