Re: Center stand check fluid?
Here's a slightly different EHCS issue:
After having the entire CS assembly off the bike, and having cleaned it thoroughly, now it doesn't "snap back" up when I roll it off the stand. If I put the bike on the side stand I can reach under an push the CS up. It has a lot of resistance for the first inch or so of travel of the piston coming out of the cylinder, then it pops up.
Is it possible that it is low on fluid, (there is some seeping from somewhere) and that the unit relies on some internal pressure to force the piston back out that initial amount?
And yes, I have lubed all of the pivots and re-adjusted all of the mounting bolts to be sure it is in the correct alignment.
