|Bbi||YOu guys know about the trick of putting pennies in between the coils of the spring when it is extended. keeps the spring from retracting when the load is taken off and then it is easy to take on and off. I know this would be a problem when the spring is already retracted, but it is a very nice trick to know.|

I can't believe any bike with a list price north of 10 grand doesn't include a center stand, especially one with "adventure" or "touring" in its tag line.
But that said, I couldn't imagine NOT having one for maintenance, tire changes, etc. so it was the first thing I ordered. Decent prices from Oneida Suzuki, but their shipping price sux.
Mine included instructions, but had a bear of a time getting the right side spring on (left was simple with a long screwdriver). Finally used a ratcheting strap / shoelace hooked to the hitch on my truck and went one in a snap.
Works very well, minimal effort to get it on the stand especially compared to my other bikes. I haven't done a fill-up yet so I haven't seen if it allows you to squeeze a little more gas in the tank but that can also be pretty convenient.

|billmags||Re:springs. After some cussin', I discovered a post using a large Phillips screwdriver using the star tip to hold on to the pin then just pull until it slides and snaps. Two Seconds!|
