Me weighing only 155 pounds I know I'll never get a GW on it's center stand and would like to know if a motorcycle jack can be used to lift it up.
All true; however, I find it seems to take more strength sometimes to pull the bike OFF the center stand once I've got it up there -- especially if it is facing up a small incline! Oh --- and don't forget to put your side kick stand down BEFORE you pull the bike off the center standIt may not seem like it now, but with a little practice and some technique you can get the Wing on its center stand. Do a search in these forums and you will see the technique described. It takes very little strength.
Ugh. I remember that ONE time...The hardest part for me in using the center stand was getting past the point where I thought I was going to drop the bike over onto it's right side. Now it is a piece of cake after that first time finding and feeling the point where the center stand is touching the ground at both points.
