    Yeah, that helps.

    I was hoping for the exact same shot before and after (we all know you have a shot from every angle every step of the way ) but this good.

    Like this:



    IMO, seeing it like that gives an appreciation for how much the bike has evolved.
    Sorry. I will have to work on it more later but that was what I had in pb.

    Thanks I have done a fair amount to it. Other than blacking out the front forks and doing a gas charge progressive suspension swap I'm done with it. Lol. I know that is almost funny.

  • NW: as said I don't need to oil. So I will use it mostly for parking, loading the bike with gear & passengers. But if I place a small piece of plywood (say 1/2") under the center stand it will lift the rear wheel, then push tt down to do the front. They don't make it longer all the time because with the wheels on the ground it gives it more stability.

  • I love my center stand on the 500. It made getting to the engine and carbs soooo much easier.

  • Well I also found out I have a love/hate with it on un-even ground. I love that when in such a place I can do a burnout without trying. I hate it when it does that, cause all I want to do is drive off it and away, but now have to get off and push it off the stand instead to leave. LOL
