Center stand mods

I have two R100GS-PD's and really dislike the center stands... Was at the dealer the other day and put a new r1200gs up on it's stand. Nice. The way it should be. Just stand on it and the bike comes up. Also owned a '95 r1100gs and enjoyed the way the stand raised the bike almost effortlessly. Anyway... I'm building a better mouse trap. Will let you know how it goes. The later models, ie. the '95 GS's on have a lever so your body weight lifts the bike by stepping down instead of having to lift the beast. I have a bad back, so need to design a nice lever and weld it on to the existing center stand. This will happen soon , as I'm setting up my '92 for a S. America run and must be able to easily center stand the bike. I,ll come up with a workable solution and photograph it.
