Turning your bike on the kick stand

I don't need to do this very often but it can be useful sometimes. Anyone know of any reason not to do this with a brutale or are there some of you that do it regularly.

Remember the side stand is mount on the sump and it's not uncommon for the gasket to start leaking in this area.

It's an aluminum kickstand. I can snap unlike the steel ones on Japanese bikes. I used to do it all the time I don't anymore because I have heard of this happening.

The oil gasket sounds legit but I have never ever heard of a kick stand snapping from this and find it hard to believe unless there is a defect in the cast.

ok, so have at it and wait. Like I said I've been doing it on bikes for years. Ive heard more than one story of aluminum ones snapping and chose not to continue. Why'd you ask if you just wanted to argue with the possible answers?

I'm not arguing with the possible answers. That kind of pressure at an area with a gasket sounds like it could be trouble. I'm disputing what you heard actually ever happened. Hearing something dose not make it true. The shear point on the connection between the kickstand mount and whatever it is attached to would be far more likely to break before the kickstand it self.

i can send you a picture of my broken side stand, if you have
doubts that they can snap. it happened differently than from
turning the bike on the stand (a car backing out backwards
with the bike parked on the side stand behind it.)
