That answers two questions, then.

Transitioning from 4-wheeling/rock crawling hobby to this bike as a primary means of motorsports, I've found that I need a different take on tools and shop setup for some, but not all, stuff. Reading up on the pros/cons of centerstands on the Wee, I had assumed that a centerstand was one of the first things that people put on - until I figured out how much these things are taken off-road. Which I hope to learn hella more how to do.

I just assumed that you'd want the bike as flat as possible when doing any sort of fluid maintenance on it...
