Centre Stand

Guys,
This is a post really aimed at people who have fitted a centre stand. Those of you who have reached a certain age will appreciate why I am asking!


I am looking at getting one for my 750 but note that there is not a grab bar on the bike - so the question is simple, is the leverage force on the stand sufficient to raise the bike onto the stand or will I perhaps regret trying to lift it on with a feeble body like mine !!


Thanks in advance.

I have a center stand on my 750. I have to rock the bike backwards a bit with left foot on the stand depending on the level of the ground to pivot it on the stand. It sure makes changing the oil and filter a lot easier when I put the center stand down.
