Re: Centre stand slow to go up

how about penetrating lube at all pivoting points . check that springs are intact.

Check to make sure the stand swings easily by hand. If not you have to remove the two screws that hold the pivots in and remove the pivot to clean and lube them as they are sealed with o-rings.

If the stand swings easily then your unit may be low on oil.
