    Terrified on Centerstand

    Its been 3 days owning 2022 triple black.

    Im coming from R9T that i modded so heavily and got used to it. First adjustment i need to practice.

    I am 6 flat. Deactivating from centerstand is not possible via riding it and push it. Lmao! My wife laughed and she know im having a frwaking hard time deactivating it 😂

    So what i did is… putting bike in 1st gear then pushed it like you are walking the bike. Success but im terrified…


    This thing is a dinosaur man.. but it hauls!

    I'm 5'9" and i have no trouble taking my gen2 off the centre stand. I flick the side stand down and take it off the centre stand in neutral before I start and get on the bike and it's simple.

    This bike is a doddle to put on and off the centre stand, I genuinely had more trouble with a CB125F mainly because the lever is badly positioned.

    The XR centre stand is one of the easiest I have used going up or down.

    Perhaps the OP needs to watch a few Youtube videos to get the right technique?

    Ditto, you cannot be using the right technique if you are finding it hard.

    Totally confused here also. XR Centre stand is a breeze compared to some.
    Especially if trying to come off stand.

    I think it is when your actually off the stand and the way the bike feel when going to side stand. Now that takes a bit of getting used to as bike feels as if is going to fall over.

    However i can asure the bike will sit on side stand no issue. Getting back off side stand takes a bit f technique though. Have found turning headstock away from you as you pull up works a treat.  :152:

    Sorry for the confusion. No issue on putting the bike on center stand. Its actually the easiest bike to put on it.

    The issue i have is taking off. The method i used is lift the one prong then handlebar away and pull using passenger handle. Yes, the sidestand is down.

    Used to do it on my Multistrada all the time.

    1. Stand on the left side of the bike with the bike in neutral
    2. Grip the handlebar with your left hand for stability and passenger grab handle with your right hand
    3. With the bike straight up and down, put your right foot on the center stand and push down with your foot
    4. As you are pushing down on the center stand with your foot, pull up with your right hand on the passenger grab handle

    The bike will automatically roll onto the center stand from the downward pressure of your foot and upward pressure from your right hand.

    To get it off the center stand, grab the handlebars with both hands and push and sway the bike back and forth until it rolls off. This is a semi-violent motion, the center stand will pop up as the bike rolls off onto its wheels.

    I was sweating bullets the first time I did it, but since then its been easy. The center stand is very handy for tire changes
