Nick, I just answered your email. Sorry, but I don't check my business emaill account everyday or ADV. The side stand will bump up against the centerstand when retracted. Yes, you do need to have the side stand down when deploying and retracting the centerstand. It is possible that I got the balance off on that stand. If you have bags on the rear with any weight in them the bike will sit on the rear wheel. Mine does when I am loaded up.
I will see about getting a stand to replace that one and exchange it. In the mean time can you place a little weight on the front of yours for servicing? When mine is loaded, usually the weight of my jacket and helmet will tip it on the front.
Sorry about that.
