Re: What was that "pop" noise
The only guess I have is the bolt was loose from the factory and repeated use of the EHCS actuator stressed it until it broke. They normally go in with dry blue loctite but they may have missed that one.
Any good grease will work on the pivots both center and side stands. The spring is a killer to get off the center stand and you cannot lube it with out removing the spring. Then pull the bolts (held in with blue loctite so heat to 100 degrees C to soften). Use the circlip to lever out the pivot puck and you will see two o-rings that hold the grease in and keep water out.
