kick stand r1100s

What is the best way to get the side stand (kick stand) off? I'm trying to put my new flex-glass belly pan on an it's in the way.

#50 torx bit, you may need some heat if it's been Locktited. I asume you have some way to keep the thing propped up (unless you're really fast).

pan

If its the BXC replica pan, roll the bike up on a 2"x6"x8'. Or a couple of two foot pieces under each tire. You need ground clearance. Two people are needed. I keep a piece of 2"x4" to rest the stand on.
Extend the sidestand and lean the bike to the right a little. Then thread the pan through the kickstand. I put a blanket on the floor first, to keep the pan from getting scratched.

Method two is : Lean the bike way over on the right side and thread the stand through.

There is really no easy way . It is a pain in the ass.

No, this pan is a race pan, so you have to remove the kickstand completely.

...you will definirely need some heat, and a heat gun probably won't do it, a torch is better.

Thanks all for the help. I decided to take it to the shop and let Bill and the gang do it correctly.
