|kagaku||I managed to get it back on using the coin trick and two pairs of vice grips to handle it. Thanks all!|

You need one of these:
You can make your own from an old T handled Allen by just heating the tip and bending it into a hook...remember to reheat and quench in cold water to reharden it.

1) use a length of tie wire or cord to pull the spring
2) screwdriver through the spring hook and the tip placed on the spring post, lever the spring to the post
3) vise-grips on the spring, pull the spring to the post or hole
Extra hand sometimes makes all the difference. Beware of the flying spring!

Reattach kickstand spring?
Any trick to this? I took it off a few months back to repaint the frame and I'm trying to find a decent way to attach it - can't get it anywhere near where it needs to be. Center stand was easy, it folds back all the way up to where the spring just about fits.
