Just wondering if it's safe or not to spin the bike on its sidestand. I get lazy sometimes to back the bike out, so I do it pretty often. I can't help but to think that eventually this will effect the stand's structural integrity. The GSXR kickstands looks to be pretty sturdy unlike the toothpick ones Yamaha has. Any advice?

I've done it a lot, I don't think its going to break or anything. A lot of guys I ride with do it and I've never heard of anyone having the kickstand break.

On the newer Gen bikes like my 00 750 the kickstand is made diffrent than tradition kickstands. Its alot harder to pick up this bike and ones like it and spin it. Older bikes or are alot easier.
