That is not correct. The owners manual calls for using the stand for regular maintenance. When in the crate the stand is strapped up out of the way and the bike is sitting on the tire.

I have never had any trouble using the factory stand. Easy to get on and off. It's all in your technique.

Anyway, take some emery cloth and sand down the OD of your stand (it won't take much effort). Not a precision rotating item, so it won't matter if you don't keep it perfectly round.
