OK the good is that I always use the centre stand, mainly because once i was washing my CBR on the sidestand and as I was on my knees cleaning her she toppled over and hit the garage pilar with yes u guessed it the tank!

Put a lovely big dent/crease in my lovely contoured tank....so never ever do any work on the bike with the sidestand now.

To make matters worse the Swing leans like a bugger when on the side stand and the extra weight on the tail of a Givi VR 46 top box means it would not take much to topple over or roll fwd and collapse on the left.

OK now the issues , the rubber bung has been lost on the centre stand and looking under neath after 10K miles its wearing a patch of the swingarm / belt cover so any ideas where I cna source a rubber bung from , looked everywhere.

Next issue is with the bung off the added clearance of the centrestand means she does not touch down on the left any more :(so far) but when the bungs on that extra half inch means she will start sparking. I dont lean like a hero by the way just moderate angles of lean and crunch she makes contact .....any ideas , I guess i might need to jack the rear end upp a bit ....

Totally pi$$ed off with myself yesterday, went to take the bike of the centre stand as normal (bars turned to slightly right as normal) and it went too far to the right for me to hold it, straight into my pride & joy, my GT86 was dented and a big scratch on the front wing, luckily I have SMART insurance which covers up to 300mm diameter & damage is around 140mm, bike has no bloody marks on it at all !! Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad

I think secret getting heavy scooter safely off centerstand---get on bike, roll off stand going straight ahead, hands ready for brakes.

I think a weight reduction program would do well with the SW but not sure where it would come from. I have changed the silencer and that must have saved 5-8 KG alone but have a Givi Top Box which is worth its weight in gold.

Anyone have any ideas......some peeps have taken off the hand brake caliper but its there for a reason so not me ......

That's not right - my Swing doesn't lean over like that.  I guess your bike has had the side stand (or its mounting) bent.  

Might be bodgeable by mounting (bolting?) a plastic, wooden or metal 'shoe' under the foot of the stand so it holds the bike more upright.  (Make sure it doesn't prevent the sidestand from fully retracting.)

I had that excess lean problem on a previous bike - a Varadero 1000.  Previous owners were keen tourers and, er, not tall, and seemingly regular mounted their already heavily laden bike while it was still on the side-stand  Rolling Eyes .

Oh, and you can eliminate/reduce the risk of it rolling forward off the side-stand by applying the parking brake.
