With all center stands, push down on the peg with your right foot, center the bike so that you can feel both the feet on the stand touch the ground, once I have that I hold my grab bar (unsure if you have one) and the handlebars just for stability, then you press down hard with your right foot and pull back.
2. you put the two D-Rings (metal loops) through the hook on the helmet lock and press the hook into the lock and you're set.
Go for feel on getting it on the stand - and the tips here are great. Think it through, use what's been said, and don't be scared to admit that it's too unstable to pull up. Better to have failure than torn up bike.
Helmet - duct tape, and lots of it. Who needs one without sticky residue, anyway?
on my bike I put out the right side passenger peg and the top of my helmet rests on that so it doesn't rest on my hot exhaust...I know this won't apply to you and therefore can't help you...I just thought I'd brag
