I always do it, makes turning the bike easier. I have had to replace a few of them because they have got bent after a while or the welded on foot bends and breaks off but on ebay they are like 10 bucks.

I've had zero probs spinning the bike on the kickstand. Wats up with the way they make bikes so flimsy these days?? My 95 Honda CB1000 has been rock solid through and through even with cross country trips and dropping and flinging it down the road without me.lol. A lil bent but not broken.

A few times when the foot broke off, I have had the kick stand just impale the asphalt on a hot day. I mean, it will go right through it.

I welded a piece of 1/4 inch plate on a friend's that lost the foot and hasnt even bent.

I will do that to the next one that breaks off.

I have never seen anyone do this and I guess I don't get it.
I think if I tried to spin my bike on the kickstand I better have my cell phone handy so I can call a friend to come get that off me when it lands on my . HAHA!!!

Anyone got a vid of this? I'm just curious as to the practical application that risks dropping the bike.
