But yea.. i can't spin a gixxer either. Haven't tried a new gixxer tho, might be easier cuase they are smaller than the older ones.

Turn the wheel to the right, pull up on the bars and lever the bike on it's stand then spin it around.

By all means, yes. There are many variations of the kick stand spin, like the "no hander" and the "one legger".
The no hander is the hardest one to master.
