Safe to do a sidestand flip on MV's?

is it safe to do a sidestand flip on MV's?

Posting this here because facebook group is giving conflicting answers... some people say theyve been doing it for years and other says it is not safe and will break...

I'd be less than inclined (pun intended) to do that with a 1999 - 2009 F4 as the side stand is mounted to the sump. It would put immense stress on the sump gasket.

French (official I think?) MV stunt rider does them on an F3. Been posted on here a few months ago. Safe? For him maybe. I'd not have the skill or know where to start. Definitely end up worse for wear if I tried.

Heres an alternative and its safe. Wont damage your bike in any way shape or form.

I woudnt put more pressure on the kickstand than necessary.

Think I got mixed up with stunts there. Teach me to watch the videos properly.

Nope a definite no! Like stated side stand on pre 2010 is mounted on sump, plus the angle on our kickstands is very steep so even more stress. I keep side stand deployed the least possible, always use paddock stand at home.

I've been turning bikes (inc my 2015 F4) for years like that .... but the point about Gen1 sidestands is valid

If you want my opinion, I'd also never ever do this, regardless of where the stand is mounted.

Under normal operation, the stand will never be subject to the full weight of the bike. Most of the weight is still on the tyres. The stand is only subject to relatively little weight produced by the slight offset of the bike's centre of gravity. I cant do the math, but if you want to do a real life test, try sitting on the bike and putting a leg down. Now keep leaning the bike and see when your knee pops
