Along with a host of other changes made in 1981, the center stand was redesigned. It raised the bikes wheels far more than neccesary, increasing the effort required dramatically. They finally fixed it in 1983. The improved stand can be identified by a patterned pad to press your foot against. I have welded the stops on the '81-'82 stands and shortened the legs of the '81-'82 stands. It's a tedious job.
