Only thing to add to BigB's comments - and I would not have thought about this until I saw someone trying to get his bike on the centerstand and having trouble...
After you grab the handle bars with the left hand, and the frame/tail piece with your right, press down on the centerstand's arm and make sure the bike is resting on BOTH "feet" of the stand before putting all your weight on the lifting arm while pulling up with your arms a little.
The guy I was watching, was trying to lift the bike while it was leaned on the side stand, and try as he might, it wasn't going to happen. :lol:
As others have said - it shouldn't be too tough - unless the bike has been lowered.
Have a good weekend,
