Thread: Any tricks to getting it up on the Center Stand?

    I asked a relative of mine why it was so hard to lift my one of my Four's onto the rear stand and he being about eighty years old and a lifetime Harley rider looked at me and said, "Because the rear stand only works on the grass."

    He was right about that, it worked!

    I also saw a video about this for a center stand: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UWEjyMGq8T8

    I've never had a problem pulling any bike up on the rear stand; regardless of surface conditions. When I work on a Henderson, or Big Twin H-D on my lift, I always put them on the rear stand, and that steel diamond plate is slippery. I think it is more a matter of focus, and concentration of motion, than just grunt, and muscle. Practicing in grass is a good idea and will help to develop the technique.
