my SW center stand doesnt fully retract anymore. I have always greased it and now I think it has gotten gummed up. maybe it is grease, dirt, or maybe rust but lubing doesnt help anymore. anyone have a suggestion?
WD40, kerosene, diesel or any number of commercial degreasers will probably do the trick. Get and old toothbrush and put some muscle into it. Rinse and repeat until satisfied, then lube whatever needs lubeing. Should do the trick, this isn't exactly rocketscience...
Guess who hasn't been around long enough?
Grease, given dirt and heat and cold can set up to a very good imitation of a solid. Enough so to not work anymore.
How about removing the center stand assy and doing a clean and lube and reassembly?
i like simple green. it isn't hard on anything that you don't want to degrease, and does the job reasonably well. used it to clean bits of tar/water and ice off siding when i used to roof, also. worked like a charm, and didn't discolor.
