I'm trying to avoid installing a center stand on the 800XC and want to know what alternatives are possible. I'm trying to avoid the extra weight and expense of the center stand. I had one on my Vstrom and almost never used it. I can use a chock for the front wheel and a paddock stand for the rear wheel. I also have a light weight scissor jack to lift either the front or rear end of the bike but what is the best lifting point. I don't want to damage anything. What do riders out on the road or trail do to get the wheel off the ground to fix a flat?
