Question about 2004 Honda CBF 600
After I take my bike off it's stand the stand doesn't return without a lot of effort - is there somewhere I should lubricate or have I lost a spring or something - The full stand not the side stand...
Here are some other possibilities:
1) Center stand is bent. Inspect both legs carefully. In most cases, the left leg is more susceptible than the right.
2) Bushings are worn out. Your center stand pivots up and down on either one long bolt through the frame or two smaller ones (one from each side). These bolt(s) pass through bushings of a softer metal (typically brass). Bushings are designed to wear out with use. When this occurs, the bolt passing through it can bind.
3) Pivot bolt(s) are overtightened. Rare, but, anything is possible.
In any case, I'd recommend placing your bike up on a couple of automotive jack stands. You're gonna need a helper for this. Put them under your frame, one on each side. Keep the bike high enough to lower your center stand without it touching the ground. In this position you can:
-sight the stand (while down) from the rear and check for bends.
-remove the return spring and test the stands movement
-crack loose the pivot bolt(s) and check movement
-remove the pivot bolt(s) and inspect the bushings

Yes , it may require some light lubricating at around the stand but first you will need to clean up throughly around the stand fittings better to use WD40 and thn some mineral oil as lubricant.
Not bad too to check the spring of its tension!
Hope this helps!
