I seem to remember reading about someone that had it fail. Damned if I can remember which forum it was in or the size bike. I think BikerBill had some issues with his 500 this past year. And I seem to remember someone else saying something about theirs crapping while on a trip but I'm not sure if that memory is accurate.
Regardless, after having mine fall (not related to the kickstand) I really don't want to put any undue pressure on mine so I don't place any butt-weight on mine until I have it where I am standing up. It just feels natural to me: foot over, foot down, bike up, butt down.
Mine has a centerstand, too, and I won't put my extra weight on that either.
