Hopefully, this isn't a duplicate thread, but I had the original message almost done when the new kitten jumped on the keyboard and the window disappeared! I don't see the message so I assume it got zapped by some crazy key sequence.
I just finished my 24K maintenance and forgot and installed the bodywork before greasing the centerstand. Both BMW and CLymer say the lower fairings must be removed to perform maintenance on the EHCS. Has then been your experience if you have done this job?
Also, is removing just the centerstand sufficient or does the actuator also have bushings that shold be serviced?
Is it easier to just remove the entire assembly? Although, it appears to me that this also includes the sidestand so I would have to strap the bike upright somehow.
I am debating just waiting until next winter as I can operate the center stand by hand and it is very smooth with no drag noticed, just the spring tension. Unlike the sidestand which had noticeable drag, which is now gone thanks to a shot of grease.
