I need to replace the center stand on a 1980 CX500D. The bike is 100% stock. I have a copy of the service manual but I cannot find anything about the center stand. In trying to figure out removal, I was able to remove the spring and slide the pivot pin out as far as the right side muffler; but it looks like the exhaust system has to be lowered or removed. Doing this on the garage floor without a front wheel chock and the bike on the side stand, the center stand foot rests on the floor. I'm reluctant to start loosening the exhaust "H" and the rest of the system, partly because there's a crash bar bolted in several locations. I'm hoping there's a simpler way

I can take and add pics if needed. Any guidance or suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks
