Also the grab area in front of those post, help lift the bike on the center stand. You put the center stand down, handlebars straight, left hand on left grip, balance the bike on a flat surface, feel the two stand feet while pushing down on the stand and a moderate lift on that grab area. There are Youtube videos on putting the CTX on the center stand. I sit on the bike, wiggle forward to get it off the stand. My used standard CTX had a center on it. The stand is great for cleaning wheels and check oil, servicing. I didn't know how to get the CTX on the center until I saw the Youtube video.
Stay safe, everyone
