GS side stand removal

What's the trick to removing the 09 GS1200 sidestand? The bolt and sensor come off easy enough but the internal bearing or sleeve is holding the stand in place. Any suggestions? Thanks to anyone that has experienced this problem.

I also have this same issue and coincidentally I also live in San Diego. Anyone tell me how to remove the inner bushing so I can remove the side stand. Mine even tighten up had a lot of play in it. The bike is really leaning over.

I kept at it and found the instructions for the sidekicker side stand installation. They show you how to remove the old side stand.

Enjoy

There is a hole inside the bushing (cross drilled), you need a small pick to pull out.

Holy Crap on a Cracker! I can't get that bushing out to save my life. I tried everything I could think of. I just put that damn thing back together.

I WILL NOT allow a bushing to get the better of YOU! It's a BUSHING!
Get back to work...yeah...take it apart...again...put some WD40 in there...wait over night and VOILA...YOU WIN!

You can 'thank me' later.

Suggestion:
BOLT with diameter just fitting inside. Washer on each end the size of bushing. Nut on one side.

Tighten up and now wail away with a hammer...and maybe a chisel on the bolt head.
Don't stop till you're finished (that is..the bushing is finished).

Get to it.

That don't work...we'll then talk about HEAT options!


If HEAT doesn't work...the 2013's will be here shortly..."Oh honey, I need a new bike because I can't get this stupid bushing out".

Try whacking it in the OPPOSITE direction that you're now trying!
OUTSIDE to INSIDE...or
INSIDE to OUTSIDE.

Comprendo?

Don't ever ever ever give up!

I can't quite get to it in the back. And the rear hole on the kick stand is threaded and smaller. It's a pain in the rear. I have other things to do on the bike for now. I will eventually get back to this.

The bushing goes in from underneath and will not push thru, it must be removed from the same side.

It pulls out from the front. He was saying to tap it out from the back.

That is good that it spins(not frozen)
Tank a piece of 1/16" steel welding wire and bend it in a tight 90 degrees about 1/2" from the end.
Then cut the bent end back to 1/8" long and file end flat and deburr.
Use this "hook" to fish inside the bushing bore to find the cross drilled hole.
When you hook the hole, pull down.


Addendum 20:35:
This worked for me on an 06 RT. I just looked at the fiches and compared to GS and it appears the GS is done differently.
My apologies for misleading you.
