I will have to look into how it works, you’ve piqued my interest. I feel I should know anyway.

Well after 30 years riding and working on bikes, I’m rather embarrassed.
Turns out the rather low lift height of the centre stand and a slight bump in the drive at the exact position of the rear wheel were responsible. Idiot.

There are those of us who have been there, and those of us yet to.

Didn’t want others worrying it might happen to their bike. Although it might if your drive is uneven 😉

Easily done.  Still quite funny though.  :031:

Glad it’s sorted. That’s the sort of thing that I seem to do. I really should learn to check the simple things first. :002:
