    Lifting for center stand install

    Got my genuine Honda centerstand. I've read all the centerstand info in the forum, very helpful. I couldn't find anything about how or if you have to lift the bike to install the stand. Can you do it while the kickstand is down or do you have to lie on the floor and work from there. Seems like a way to lift the bike would be easier. I know I can buy a lifter but isn't there some clever way to raise the bike that you ingenious guys know of????

    It's designed to be installed while the bike is on the sidestand.

    I just received mine today. I just read the instructions and wondered why the muffler bolt had to come off.

    It just makes a little more room to work. You can do it either way.
