How do you install new side stand?

I broke my shortened welded side stand. Ordered an adjustable side stand. How do you handle the spring? I need to remove the old one and install the new one. I'm sure there is some kind of method I don't know about.

There are two ways to do it:

1) Install the stand, hook the spring on the top mount, then using a screw driver, hook it in the bottom loop, pivot the driver on the bottom mount and then slide the spring down to screw driver and hook it on.

2) Hook the sring on to the top and bottom mounts, then pull the stand until it lines up with the bolt hole and push the bolt in.


Hope this helps.

Got it on. The spring is actually 2 springs. That made it easier to remove and replace the spring set by doing them one at a time. I used a "T" handled spring hook remove and replace the spring. I had to zip tie the kick stand in the up position for minimum tension on the spring(s).
