    You take the entire center stand and THROW it has far as you can. Then you go buy a rear stand from www.pit-bull.com

    Really can not help you with out putting a pic up.

        If you had bought one from me, it woudl come WITH instructions, photos, and a 1-800 help line. (Well, at least you can get ahold of someone here that knows how!)

        How's this:

        Banana clip............and springs.........LONG SIDE DOWN.

        2 ways:
        A. Put all together, hook clips and springs all up, then L bolt then R bolt

        -----OR-----
        B. Put all on except clip top/front, and with stand in UP position move hole in clip 1/2" onto pin on frame.

          lol, thazkat helped me out with it. but after posting i sat and stared at it and used my physics class teachings. it all came togther..until i put the wrong spring in the wrong place and gave it a little stretch that stayed. other than that i got it. thanks for the help and confirmation. thanks again for the chain adjusters got them yesterday put em on today they look and work great.

            Chris, Physics don't work here. laughing out loud!
            I hope it all works now. Which spring did you stretch? I might talk Keith into getting me one for you. lots of luck dude.
            All and when I am up that way we will go riding sometime, sound cool?

My GDMF left exhaust is in the way ..............GEEEEEEEEEZ talk about busting a girls bubble. As badly as i want the stand on my bike, not sure it it's worth dropping the exahust.

              BTW, I think they may have been correct. It does appear that BLACK is indeed the FASTEST color. R.O.R...R.I.P.M

                Does anybody know the torque settings for the centerstand bolts?

                  I don't think there are torque specs, I think it's one of those things that you just tighten it pretty well, they don't seem to be easily stripped, I tightened mine using a pretty good amount of force, probably about 25-30 ft/lbs?

                    Thanks! I'll try it...

                    Do you think I need to grease my bolts and the metal sleeves they insert into?

                      I think its tight ft/lbs of torque.

                          It's only 3-bolts to remove the exhaust / slip-on...

                              or buy a t-rex racing stand off ebay for less than half the price.
