    Just use a long Phillips head screwdriver. Hock the spring over the shaft of the screwdriver, stick the head on the peg, use the screwdriver as a lever to stretch the spring out & it will slide down the screwdriver & pop into place. Or the screwdriver will slip & the springs take out your eye. YMMV.

    Re: SW-Motech centerstand install

    I usually always think that it's blasphemy to use centerstand. I usually remove it, if the bike has one.

    but this centerstand looks ok, looks relatively light and is hardly noticable when up.

    but it's still blashemy

    Honestly, the only heavy bits on that stand are the two thick steel brackets you bolt onto the frame. The stand itself and everything else is surprisingly light. I pulled mine out of the box and was like, "WTF?!?" I thought it was going to add a bunch of weight. Can't beat the ability to put the bike up on the centerstand if your parking options are limited. Its also nice for chain maintenance, changing tires, working on/replacing the rear shock... The list goes on.

    If you know anyone that works on autos or medium duty trucks, they may have a spring tool for just such an occasion. Anyone that works on drum type rear brakes is likely to have one in their toolbox, I use mine all the time.

    Re: SW-Motech centerstand install

    Here's a couple of shots from the left side:




    I'm not a hotshoe, but I can't imagine this thing touching down - it really tucks up tight to the frame. Only close spot is where the chain passes over - it's VERY close, but it DOES clear. And I understand that many people hate center stands, but in my case it allows the bike to be stored in a very small space in the garage - wouldn't fit on the side stand. And it sure makes chain and rear wheel maintenance easier. I've had mine on for almost 2 years, and love it.

    SOB:

    I assume you got yours at www.twistedthrottle.com ? I ordered one and was given a ship date 2 months away; I cancelled the order. I've got a 2 week trip in August, and was hoping to have it in time. Anywhere else to get this item?

    Very strange. I ordered mine about two weeks ago and got it today. I was actually surprised it got to me so fast. I don't know if you can buy it anywhere else either but I haven't really looked too much around the interweb.....too much porn which gets me off track.
