After giving the new OEM stand a couple coats of semi-gloss black Rustoleum and letting it dry for several days, I installed it today. I probably didn't need to put on the extra paint but I wasn't in a hurry and stands usually take a beating under the bike.
Mounting took about an hour because I was being careful and there were several different sizes of bolts with different torque specs. I did use the instruction booklet that came with the stand which is remarkable because it seems like nothing comes with printed instructions anymore. More often than not, you need to check out instructions online. So it was nice having the booklet. If I had it to do again it would take about 15 minutes. But that's not going to happen because this stand will last the life of the bike because the quality, weight, and ruggedness is far above that of the HT. The only difficult part was the attachment of the springs. There are two, one inside the other. I had to make a spring puller which was pictured in the instruction booklet. It's basically like a T-handled meat hook - with a 10" shank and a small hook on the end to pull the U hook on the end of each spring over the attachment point on the stand. It would have been nearly impossible to do without this tool or something like it - the springs were very strong so I had a friend help me. After the stand and all the bolts were installed and torqued, I wired the stand into the up position. Then I pulled the springs (with great effort!), one at a time, while he guided them onto the attachment lug. I started with the smaller diameter inner spring first. The stand comes with a thick rubber bumper which works great. Glad to get it done!
