Now, folks, back to our program in progress. The only thing I can imagine him referring to is the rear shock absorber. He may not know, as we used to say in Naval Aviation, his cyclic from his collective. I still have no idea what he could mean by his electrical system making a funny noise when he put it on the center stand. The OP has not shared any further info or pix so I'm going leave now.

Or was that push on my cyclic?

I noticed the shaft underneath burgman 400 has rings around it. One of which is bent, as if from center stand, what side effects would follow?
We are still asking if you can post a quick picture of this.

I'll post pic soon, the funny noise didnt sound so good, I'm not good at using stand and it seemed 2 make electric zap sounds as I lifted the burgman, and as one individual said, shock ring, it's a bent shock ring, what r the consequences of such

I don't think the bent shock ring will do any damage,it might have been bent intentionally.I don't know how the center stand would cause electrical problems,that's a mystery.ps,you can always change the spring if you want to.

I do not know exactly what a 400's shock ring is or how it looks. But I cropped and highlighted your picture some so its brighter.

It's where center stand would go, plus, all other rings are straught,
That looks normal to me, besides it would take a hell of a lot of force to bend or stretch that spring. Like I say, if your not happy with it change it. I'll have a look at mine in a bit, see if it's normal.

Someone might have been doing an Evel Knievel on it, jumping over the Grand Canyon.

Well done Dave J. Looks perfectly normal to me and I dont think it is possible for the centre stand to even get near it. As for your zapping sound static maybe from you I get zapped from my car door occasionally. Does the bike run and ride with not warning lights? Plenty of oil in the engine? If so why worry
