Re: Center Stand Issue
Motor is one cause but this can also be a result of loss of fluid. I just rebuilt one and all had to do was take it apart and clean all the seals. There were two stripped fill port screws that I replaced with slightly longer M5 0.8 bolts. I added 130ml (never add more than 150ml) of oil and she was back in shape. I will be offering rebuild service as soon as all the seals I ordered come in. But there are excellent instructions posed in the "Files" "technical" area. You can remove the actuator with out removing the centerstand. Just loosen the the bolt on the exhaust banjo and remove the two skid plate bolts (8mm hex) followed by the two 5mm hex side bolts. It will drop down enough to pull the actuator.
