It's isn't easy, but it's not impossible.
Things that make it easier...try setting your ESA to 2 people with luggage. That's maximum preload, right? I have discovered this is a help. As others before have stated rolling the back wheel up on "something" is also a great help.
As for putting a pipe through the center of the "axle" so you can use the paddock stand , I wonder if this might damage something in there. Thoughts?
