I've bought their centre stand for the TA700 but it came with no instructions and a quick search here revealed no hints about the general fitting method.

So...

Do I need to take anything off the bike?
A quick look seems to show the side stand in the way.
Do I grease the hinge pin during installation?
How do I install the spring without loosing skin!

Any help greatly welcome, pictures would be helpful too.

Thanks
Graeme

I have the same center stand mounted on my XL700.
-i didn't removed anything from the bike, it fitted perfectly in its place
- the sidestand is in the way only when both are in the low position (I think). Anyway, I have no issues using both the side and the center stand and i didn not removed the sidestand in order to mount the centerstand.
- yes, I did put lots of grease. The whole thing is in a rather dirty place, so grease will do no harm
- i used a screwdriver to make some sort of a lever with which to extend the spring and push it in its place. It was not easy, did not work from the first try, but in the end I managed to have it mounted. It is the only operation requiring both brain and muscle in the whole process.
