Like I said lets see a video. I'm 6'2" 210lbs and have no problem getting the bike on the center stand WITHOUT the cases but can't get it on the stand with the cases on. It is not due to the added weight I can't get close enough to get the leverage. Maybe I'm doing somthing wrong or there is a technique.

I'm about 6'1", 190lbs and I can do it no problem. Left hand on handlebar (just to hold it straight), right hand on the passenger grab bar, right foot on the centerstand foot and lift upwards with right hand as you put all your weight on your right leg. If you still have trouble, jam your hip into the side case for some extra leverage.

Triple tree position, barometric pressure, cat proximity, etc have nothing to do with it. I would make a video if I wasn't so dern lazy.

Im not going to take the time to make a freakin video of me putting my bike on its centerstand.

All I can give ya is move the panniers towards the rear of the bike till "you" have the room "you" need. Or continue to do as youve been doing.

Either way, be well.

Make sure you are placing your weight on the center stand footy and stepping down..

Thanks for the video. How far back do you have your bags? I can' tell from the video.

I can't get my leg even close to the angle you have it when against the bag.

That's odd, so are mine. The rear of the bags line up with the back of the mounting bracket. I guess the mounting hardware varies.

Hey Thanks that is what I wanted to see. So what I'm doing wrong is using my left foot , easy without the case but it puts me too far away with the case on and I'm grabbing too high with my right hand.

I also just sold the Trax cases , which put me even further from the bike.
The Jesses are on order.

I'll post my video when I get the bags.

Question Back on-topic....

..... I think the topic was acquiring Jesse cases for the f800gs. Now that we all know how to put our bikes up on the center stand, I have a follow up question;

Can anyone fill us in on whether or not the new and improved 9" Safari II is available. I have pretty much settled on the Jesse's, AND I want the 9-inchers (not the 8"). In order to ensure I get them I am looking for a little inmate advice. I see some of you feel a little snookered and I don't want to go there.

So, If I contact ExplorMoto is there a secret password or some phrase I need to use to get the new ones?????

I got an email response back from Rick last week:
