If its anything like the HB centerstand, which the instructions said you also need to remove the centerstand, you don't really need to. One of the two screws remained in the sidestand so it was still held in place. I was just careful not to move the bike around too much with only one screw in it. Additionally, the install is pretty quick so you could just get someone to hold the bike for a minute while you replace the existing screw with the new one that allows fitment of the centerstand.
