310GS centre stand

Can anyone tell me where and how to hook the springs of the centre stand, followed the manual and I can hardly lift it to the stand cos spring to tight and when attachment is on its too slack. If anyone can please share a Pic to show me please. I got the Sw-motech stand?

Old trick, and it works ...
Get a handful of small coins. In UK we use pennies.
Bend the spring and place a coin in between each turn of spring. If not enough stretch do same on opposite side of spring. Until you have required length of spring stretch.
When you have located the spring in correct place, pull the coins out, one at at a time. You may need pliers for last few.
