Almost friggin impossible to get it on the centerstand in my case - same setup - so I took the centerstand off againI'm at the other end of the province - down around Kingston - so a little too far away for a test heave.
What I can tell you is that I have a K9 Wee that's lowered by 3/4" both front and back, and it's a royal pain to get it up onto the centre stand. Quite doable with a bit of practice, but certainly not easy.
Well, the problem seems to be that lowering the bike reduces the leverage (puts the lever in a more upright position when it first contacts the ground).It is leverage, not brute strength.
That's the ticket, lower your own c. of g.And same here. I am lowered 1 1/4 inches, 60 years old and arthritic. Still no problems getting it up on the center stand. Practice, practice, practice...
