I’m not looking to know how to use my center stand. I’m looking how to change the spring on the center stand.

Foot position on the stand is important too. Look at Rick's position on the stand perfect. Do not use your toes I see a lot of folks struggling by using there toes.... "Keep the Shinny Side UP Rubber Side down"

I put on a drive-off centerstand , and highly recommend it for putting the bike up with even less effort, plus, you can reverse gear to put it up, provided you are on a slight uphill grade. Got mine from WingStuff, installed in less than an hour, used a brake spring too. To put on the spring!

A ride-off centerstand makes it a lot easier. Pulling a 900 pound bike UP onto the stock centerstand is a whole different story. You have to be, at least, on a level hard surface. Some backwards momentum helps. Pushing the bike away from the kickstand means that you are balancing the bike with one hand while doing all of that!

The stock centerstand allows you to more easily rotate the tires without moving the bike. You can't do that with a ride-off. With any stand, the bike can fall over (smashing a mirror) if parked on soft ground (even asphalt in the summer heat) or if subjected to strong winds.

I have a bit more information for those that may have some physical limitations. First, make sure your bike is parked pointed UP a slight incline. Second, use your LEFT foot on the center stand pedal. This puts your right leg out as a cantilevered weight. I don't have to put any strain on my back this way
