I believe the key is the center stand has to be straped with the exhaust cross-over.

It's better to strap to the front wheel. If you are fixing the front wheel you can insert the wheel bolt for strapping.

But if you feel brave you don't need straps:

zip tie the front brake lever, if you don't have a tow strap to secure the center stand :)

For your GS set up, I guess front wheel/axle will be the better location.

I'll second the advice to clean the rim of old sticky black tire goo. It can take a while, but is well worth the trouble, and makes seating the bead a snap.
