Check your manual again, because the manual for my 04 has the removal procedure listed under Chassis Section > Jiffy Stand. Anyway it doesn't look like a big deal. Remove Cotter pin and Clevis pin.
A trick I read somewhere is, with the jiffy stand extended, to add some coins into the spring coils first then return the jiffy stand to the "up" position. The inserted coins will keep the spring length longer thus making removal from the jiffy stand & retaining pin a lot easier. Saves you from having to use pliers to stretch spring out for removal/insertion.
Worked like a charm for me when I re-n-re'd the jiffy stand for chrome'ing.
