If you are pulling the actuator here is a good Video Link that shows how to remove it. It is possible to do it on the side stand it is just hard to get the nut off the end of the shaft at the center stand.
When you say it is not working do you mean the motor does not run or the motor runs but won't lift the bike?
The motor does not run. The acturator was covered with oil when I removed it. I just had a new clutch and new seals put in so there is no more leak. Thanks for the video. I will do a search I know there a few threads about doing a rebuilt.
I have encountered a few where the shaft seal on the drive gear to the pump leaked and the electric motor filled with oil. That will do it in and require a new motor. Don't bother with the little allen head ports as all filling and draining can be done though the 19 mm bolt near the base. There is a good write up in the technical files section.
