Do you have ny pics of it on the web you can share? Also interested in how much effort is required to get it down and under the bike. Have a friend with left knee problems and while we are fabricating a right side kick stand for his RG, a center stand might help him a lot (hes an old bmw rider who came over to the HD side after riding my HT one time) - or send me pics direct if you would [email protected]Originally posted by Vagabond2000 I have the Rivco centerstand on my Ultra
thanks but I had seen it on the web site - what I was interested in was seeing it on the bike - close up, and getting a guestimate on how much leg is required to push it down and get the bike up on it. In the old days you had to lift the bike with one arm as you rocked it back onto the stand, curious to know it that is still the proceedure and if so how much trouble its with a 750 + Lb bike.Originally posted by Hoss
Here is the one from Rivco (300.00)
This way sounds a little shaky I got the sears motorcycle lift on sale. I think it's about $80.00. Works great.:beer:For rear wheel cleaning I use a cheap bottle jack!
Put the bike on its side stand, jack it up from the opposite side
where theres a nut welded on to the frame, near the passenger footboard.
Up a few inches till the rear wheel leaves the ground, spin away!!!!
