for my two airheads, no problems getting R90S or R80G/S on centerstand if I've got enough room. R90S is much easier than G/S due to much higher lift on G/S. both are in excellent condition with no bushing issues.
OT ... G/S fully loaded needs a good solid side stand. getting G/S loaded on stock centerstand is a chore. unless top box and/or rear drybag is mounted all the way back. no way I'm able swing my leg over to mount.
stock stand had to go on G/S due to difficulty of deploying while seated. a good solid aftermarket side stand is a must with loaded G/S.
