Hey guys, in my haste to modify my bike, I forgot to measure the height of the bike while on the centerstand... Can someone please let me know what the height of the swingarm pivot bolt is on the centerstand, for GL650 or GL500 ... Thanks.

Hey, if the tire goes flat on the rear of the bike your in trouble. Trying to get it on the center stand flat. Well, been there done that. It was in the shed. Not much room to work with. Center stands can be a pain. Glad I got one. What I know is even the side stand will not keep the bike up.

Am I wrong? Been there.

If the tire is flat and you need to get the bike on the centerstand place a 2x4 in the path of the rear tire and wheel over it. Then it should go on the stand easier.
