OEM Rear Stand - Any tricks to getting the bike off of it?

So I tried the OEM rear stand today and realized that it is quite easy to get on the stand. Then I realized that there is no extended arm to lower the bike down from the stand like on the Pit Bull stands.

Is there a trick or technique to getting the bike off the OEM stand?

the best way is to buy a pit bull rear stand! i do not like the factory stand because of just what you said, no extended arm to put bike up !

I agree, the MV rear stand sucks. The pit bull stand is easier to lift and lower the bike. Besides, 150 bucks isn't noo much money to invest to have a more safe way to raise and lower your bike.

I just give a good pull on the handlebars from the front of the bike.

The only trick there is to remember to put down the kickstand before you take it of the stand, that way you don’t have to worry about shimmying around the side of the bike to put the kickstand down and keep the bike balanced at the same time.

OK, I agree the factory stand sucks.

I got pretty used to the OEM stand and actually really like it. Just hold on to the handlebars and use your foot to "stop" the stand from moving forward. Then I just give a push forward (with kickstand down) and it should come down with both arms balancing the bike from the bars

I have learned to get her up on the stand with ease, and down off the stand with ease. I'm not sure I understand what the problem is???? My factory rear and Corse front stands work very well.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

There were some pics of the proper sequence posted up here at some point. Haven't had a chance to go searching for it, but it's out there.....

When bringing the bike down off the stand, I stand on the right hand side of the bike. Using my left foot, I stand on the little part of the stand that curves and flips up (where the black cap is at the end of the tube). My weight on this part of the stand coupled with pushing forward on the clip ons usually brings the bike down nicely -- my weight helps to "roll" the stand forward. Just be sure to have the kickstand down before you do this, though!
