Please help removing centerstand

I put harley pipes on my bike and took the goats belly off. The centerstand now hits one of the mufflers instead of the bottom of the goats belly. I put a piece of high temp silicone rubber hose with a zip tie around the centerstand where it rests on the bottom of the muffler. It works perfect but it has reduced my ground clearance and today it bottomed on a speed bump.

Can anyone please tell me the procedure for removing the centerstand ? I searched the forum and could only find posts saying it was a bitch to get the spring back on to re-install it but no thread on removing it. I just don't want to take it off wrong and I don't see how it comes off. Thanks for any help

FYI :
Kawasaki introduced the 750 cc class Vulcan worldwide in 1985. Due to tariff restrictions in the United States on bikes over 700 cc imported from Japan, the initial US spec model was limited to 699 cc. The tariff was lifted in 1986 and the Vulcan went to 749cc.

Oh man, that center stand is the one thing I miss most about my Vulcan. If I could put one on my sporty I would! So freaking handy to have.

Thank you very much, My safety pin was gone or I could have easily seen how to take it off. Coins in the spring to release tension, great Idea.

And as far as it being useful, I totally agree, but it or my harley pipe setup must go and it lost the coin toss Plus, I have a bike jack I use when I work on it. Thanks all for the help.
