is it possible to bend the kickstand mount?

Hello all, I am using the Troxx snap jack, and I'm just curious if it is possible to bend the kickstand stand from using that jack?

I use a similar setup in lifting my Rebel to lubricate the chain and have not seen any evidence of the kick stand bending.

I agree with Kenny. I have used the kickstand in that fashion as well. No evidence. The Honda service tech I asked also said they do it.

I searched a long time for a method to lubricate the chain without needed to rolling the bike 1000 times rate-wise forward and back. And I can´t use a heavy lifter, because I have no place to put it when not needed (what is most of the time- so I hope!).
This tool seems to come in very handy for those purposes.

I had read some informations and tips for proper use, there are some videos too:

But there is one question: how does the snap jack fit on the round swingarm of the rebels?

Lots of ideas in the thread “chain maintenance” or search for posts with “snap jack”, there was a video in there but not a close up of how the snap jack fits on the swing arm.
