    I flipped both springs so the back hook is "over the top" of the centerstand spring. The stand stays up when parked, but it is raining and I don't want to test ride now.

    test ride did not go well. less than a block and centerstand dropped. I will "flip" the springs and see if that works.

    The springs must affect the brake light because now it dosen't work.

    That's what makes this issue so irritating. I have tried the spring in a "hook up" and "hook down" position. The old spring would just barely hold the stand up. I may try and reinstall the old...

    Stupid centerstand issues!

    It won't stay in the up position! The old spring seemed a little weak, so i got a new one. Didn't hold the centerstand in the up position. Tried "flipping" the hook over and that didn't do anything....
