Center Stand



This may seem like an odd request, but does anyone have an easy procedure for raising a bike on its center stand?

The easiest way i know of is to put your foot on the stand and press it firmly to the ground while holding the handlebars with one hand and under the seat or fender with the other hand. Center the bike so both sides of the stand are touching about equally, then simultaneously put all your weight onto the stand while pulling up and back on the motorcycle.

Should pretty much pop right up.

The easiest way is "Get someone else to do it"
Sorry I couldn't help myself this time
Do it like the last guy said, pushing with your leg and pulling with your arm

Why didn't I think of that to begin with?
