Mike.S is of the opinion:[QUOTE]\nMy bike has a sidestand and a centrestand. I can get it on the sidestand\nno worries (obviously), but i can get close, but not *quite* there with\nputting it on the centrestand, i keep geeling like im about to loose my\ngrip and drop the bike on me or the pavement.\n\nWhat's the technique? like timing, where do you lift the bike? how do you\nlift, push, etc..[/QUOTE]\n\nI do mine the 'moving' way, after Zebee told me about it. You basically get\nthe bike moving backwards, and then stick the centrestand in the way. Bike\npops up no problems. <g>\n\nThe canonical way, as I understand it, is to get the left hand on the\nhandgrip, right hand on the 'lifting handle' (for want of a better term) at\nthe back of the bike (it may not seem like it has one if it's got a lot of\nplastic, but it'll be there somewhere). One foot on the centrestand, other\non the ground. Depending on how 'chunky' the centrestand is, and how well\nit's balanced, you should be able to just stomp hard on the centrestand foot\nbit and the bike will pop up.\n\nIf you've got a bike like mine, where the sidestand stampy thing is complete\ncrap (GT's had a nasty habit of snapping the foot bit off, to grat\nembarrassment), then the rolling method is the best. Stand as per the\ninstructions above, but further back (you'll probably have to lean a bit to\nget your hand on the 'bars, and your stamping foot will be further forward\nthan your standing foot). pull the bike backwards, and as your stomping\nfoot comes back, foot down so the 'stand is on the ground, and the bike will\njust roll over the swing point and happily onto the stand.\n\nOr, of course, you could just do it the pussies' way and get one of those\nrear wheel lifters. <grin>\n\n- Matt\nGT750 and proud!
