Always use the centre stand (1, fig. 34) to support the
motorcycle steadily when parked. It is designed to
support the motorcycle even when carrying the
maximum load allowed.
Before putting the motorcycle on the centre stand,
make sure the bearing surface is hard and flat.
Hold the left handlebar with your left hand and the lifting
handgrip (2, fig. 35) with your right hand. Push down on
the thrust arm (3) of the centre stand until it touches the
ground. At the same time, hold the handgrip and pull the
motorcycle upward and backward.
To take the bike off the centre stand, simply hold the
handlebars and push the motorcycle forward, until the
rear wheel touches the ground. The stand will spring
back to rest position automatically.
Before moving off, always make sure the centre
stand is fully up.
Check for proper operation of the stand mechanism (two
springs, one into the other) at regular intervals.
