Dangers of the kickstand swivel (?)

So, my brother's trying to turn his bike around in his garage. I stop him and demonstrate the kickstand-swivel-trick, where you lean the bike up on the kickstand, then rotate it around (carefully) on the kickstand/pivot point.

I've done this a bunch of times with my own bike... very handy in the city.

Problem: his kickstand fell off the next day , and he's not happy with me.

So who uses this, and is it that rare to screw up a kickstand doing this?? He's got a 600.. I wouldn't be doing it with a GoldWing.

?

It seems to work better on Honda kickstands for some reason. On mine it bent the stand a bit and now I have trouble getting it up sometimes.

I've heard it's a bad idea, but didn't listen . Now I've got a bent side stand on my Monster.

They were not designed nor intended to hold the entire weight of the bike, so I don't do it.

It's like speeding... ya, you can do it and get away with it N number of times, but eventually the odds will catch up with you.

A buddy of mine just effed his bike up from doing that too much. I wouldn't do it myself. Like others have said, it wasn't designed to take the whole weight of the bike and the side loads from spinning. Esp on a SS bike where they are thin as hell to save weight.

it works, but its not worth the risk unless there is no other way to get the bike moved. i know there is no way my old 748 kickstand would have held up to that long term.

Actually I really didn't do anything I just typed it in at acronymfinder.com and listed what they had.
