try sanding the black rubber/plasticy stuff down a lil bit

I've been recently having the same problem. I applied a little grease, but that didn't help. May go the suggested sanding route.

mine is the same, too difficult to remove....I have my old F4 stand too, that was okay on the F4, but guess they are the same stands, so why is it the B4 that causes a problem....I thought about the metal clips, but dont think they effect this, so sanding it must be then

I just bought the MV pin for the pitbull stand and it's too small - the bike looks like it's on a sidestand on the wrong side. I wrapped it with electrical tape and that seems to fix it.

take it to a machineshop and have them turn down the outside diameter of the pin ( black nylon part) about 0.005 - 0.010 of an inch , but no more then that !!!

I was thinking getting a central stand:

Enlarge picture to see.
I have seen it elsewhere with good reviews from users.
Anyone here got it?
