It's a Christmas Miracle !!!
My electric center stand has not worked all summer. I've had been too lazy to remove it to see what the problem might be. One of the most technically knowledgeable members of the board (jzeller) lives about 75 miles from me and offered to help me fix it but I just never found the time to get up there...
Anyway, tonight when I came out of Starbucks, I put the bike in reverse to back-up and a memory came over me that someone had said that his center stand worked when in reverse. I couldn't remember if I had tried it, so I pushed the button and there was the sound of the pump working and lifting the bike!!!!! I took it out of reverse and the stand worked again!!!!
IT"S A MIRACLE !!!!
