No need to move the fender to get the back wheel off a G5. A bit of wood, inch or so, under the centre stand and it'll slide right out. Did it again just the other day. Isn't it the same with a C5?
... yanking it up on to a 2x4,
Yeah, I use piece of 2x6 under the center stand, works great.

@Scott: Like you, I also find it hard to yank the bike on center stand on a 2" high wood. @r80rt and @Will - What is your trick to do that ?
Just give it a yank, it's easy to pop it up on a block of wood and change the tire.
Hell, I'm lazy ! I live on a dead end street ( no traffic ) so I just use the center stand on the curb of the sidewalk and let the rear wheel hang over the street. This gives me 5+ inches clearance.
