best way to remove center stand?

Post by cooperplace » Sat Jan 14, 2017 12:42 am

the center stand of the S2 has had the curly bit that you put your foot on removed, so it's very hard to get up onto the stand. So I want to remove the stand and get a bit welded on.

Or maybe put a new stand on, if I can get one.

What's the best way to support the bike so that I can get the stand off?

and if anyone has a proper stand, ducati part 0803.12.100, that they'd consider selling, please let me know.

Probably the easiest way would be one one those roll in front wheel chocks that grab the front wheel and hold the bike vertical. A swing arm stand would also do the job. Lacking either of those, a convenient wall and a brick on either side of the front or rear wheel[to prevent rolling] would do the job. You'll still be lying on your side on the ground to undo the bolts no matter the way you support the bike. That conquered, it's the spring that is going to be the pregnant dog.

yeah, I've got one of the roll in front wheel things, I should have bought a better one because after tightening it up it was obvious that it wouldn't hold the bike up. I think I'll buy and Anderson stand.
