same manner. Be sure rubber grommets are in place before
reversing the above procedure to install the side covers.
The sidestand is located on the left side of the motorcycle.
Correctly retract the sidestand before operating the motorcycle. An improperly retracted sidestand
could come into contact with the ground and cause loss of control.
To extend the sidestand, swing it out from the end until it is fully extended. Lean the motorcycle toward the
sidestand until the sidestand firmly supports the motorcycle.
To retract the sidestand, lean the motorcycle away from the sidestand until the motorcycle is fully upright. Swing
the sidestand back into its fully retracted position.

Rest the motorcycle on the sidestand. Remove the right side
cover (page 46).
