I find it to be about 80% with my foot and 20% with my right. If my right required any more force than that, then I would agree to not use the grab bar. I'm not subjecting enough force to the grab bar to cause any issues.

I like using the passenger peg to lift the rear end.

You'll get better leverage using either the peg or the luggage bar. Lifting up at either of those points is a lot easier than the grab rail. I just tried all three a few minutes ago and the grab rail was the hardest. But that's me. It may truly be different for someone else...

Pulling the bars left works for me. To each his/her own, whatever works...

This thread is what helped me. After all the other posts I read I could still not do it. 30 seconds after watching this I'd put it on the centerstand twice! Thanks again StonerJ! You too Range!

I can't get her on the center stand neither. I was able to drag her all over the shop successfully gouging up the concrete.
That link is broken too.
I think I'm just too little, too late and all the good has done been got.

You have to lift a little, it will pop right up....
