Ryder Use Your Motorcycle Center Stand

Conspiracy theorists will tell you that the lack of center-stands on today’s bikes is a plot to make you take it to a dealer for service. In reality it’s for cost savings, weight reduction, and increased ground clearance. If you do have one, here's how to use it. Start by standing to the left of the bike, and take hold of the left handlebar grip with your left hand. Straighten the front wheel, put your right foot on the center-stand tang, and push down until the stand touches the ground.

Gently rock the bike toward and away from you until you feel both of your center-stand's feet contact the ground. With your right hand, grip the horizontal frame under the seat. Some bikes often have a special handle here to make lifting the bike easier. Move your body as close to the motorcycle as possible. Keep your back straight and your head up. Don't lean over the bike or push your butt away from it.

Next, straighten your right leg (the one on the tang) and lock your knee. At the same time pull up (not out) with your right arm. The bike should pop right up. If you’re still having trouble, you can practice by first rolling the bike’s rear wheel up onto a 3/4-inch (19mm) piece of wood, or even a one-inch (2.5 cm) block. Practice with lighter bike or even a scooter to help you get your technique dialed in.
