Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

E.g. side- and centre-stand springs - absolute b*stards. 


Excellent tip!

They're actually quite easy when you know how.

OK then.
Make a loop of nylon cord a bout 9" or so long. Hook one end of the spring to the chassis point and the other into the nylon loop. Insert a big screwdriver or piece of wood (this is better to prevent scratching) through the loop and lever the spring into position using a wheel spoke or whatever is convenient as the fulcrum. Hook the spring over the stand lug and release the lever. The loop can then be jerked free.
