Replacing Kick/Jiffy Stand '11 Dyna

My kickstand got bent while trailering the bike. I have a new one and a new spring. (Though I don't think there is anything wrong with the spring that's there.)

Can anyone provide step by step on this replacement of the kickstand? I think that spring is going to make it tricky.

Now if you had the service manual for your bike , you would of already be done with that job..

1) level bike on lift.
2) remove nut on stand along with top plate.
3) push stand forward and remove spring.
4) remove stand.
5) reverse order to install.

Install the spring before you install the jiffy stand on the mount.
Then, using the jiffy stand for leverage to stretch the spring, install it in the mount.

Well, actually I wouldn't because I won't have time until the weekend. But you are right and it is on my Christmas list.

Thanks for the info.

I got a manual for my bike and it helped a lot on repairs....but it don't cure everything...Also you can pull your bike up next to or close to the garage wall and let it lean a little toward the wall and replace the stand...you don't need no lift....My bike stays straight up in my garage that way, even thou i have the jiffy stand down resting on a brick....it never leans that way....

Whoever the A-Hole at the MoCo that put that bolt where they put has an especially warm spot in hell waiting for him.

Only being able to make 1/6th of a turn at a time was not entertaining.

The spring took a couple of tries and different angles of attack but wasn't near as bad as I though it was going to be.
