Re: missing thread? Stiff clutch & misc ?'s
The only time I use the center stand is to work on my bike.
I have a 2 foot of 2X4 that I place against the rear tire, while sitting on the bike, I use my left foot to plant the center stand on the floor, hit the starter button while in reverse, and let the bike ride up the 2X4 and set it self on the center stand.
When the rear tire was FLAT, I used a second 2X4, made a stair out of the two, and did the same thing.
