Problem With My Centerstand
I installed a Suzuki centerstand on my Vee a couple of months ago. It's worked well until yesterday. When I tried to leave for work, I couldn't get the bike off the stand. It locked up and no matter how hard I tried, it would not budge. The problem was on the left side.
I loosened all the bolts, but it didn't help. I eventually had to disassemble and remove the centerstand in order to ride. Of course, I was late for work. :shock:
After I removed the stand, I inspected all the parts. Everything looked normal. It was well greased in all the required parts and washers were moving fine. I cannot figure out what the problem is.
I won't have time for about a week to re-install it. In the meantime, I'd like to know:
:arrow: Has anyone else has experienced the same problem?
:arrow: Any ideas?
:arrow: If I decide not to put it back on, what other options would you recommend for supporting the bike for maintenance, and tire repair on the road?
