Alright mine dosnt have to do with oil but same concept... I got all new plastics, case savers and rearsets ... So I have the bike on stands, after finishing installing everything I put the front tire down, then went and put the kickstand down thinking to myself I don't want to drop my practically brand new bike when I remember someone had posted a picture of the vortex rearsets showing how the kickstand was blocked because if the new position of the pegs. So I put the kick stand back up to see if I could drop the kick stand with my heel like I was always able to. So I practiced dropping the kick stand and putting it up back and forth thinking to myself well mine is fine no problems or obstructions leaving the kick stand up! (Dumbass) So I go to the back stand put the tire down and let the bike fall towards the kickstand thinking to myself I know the kickstand is down I was just checking it ... As the bike was falling I realized something was wrong the bike was leaning to much and I hugged the rear section of the bike around the front seat and the subframe and lifted the rear of the bike completely off the ground with just the front tire down and all the way leaned to thr the left holding the bike up so the left side case saver and plastics were off the ground.... I started to yell for help cause I could not hold the bike much longer and I didn't have the strength to put it up from where I was holding it... My 12 yr old son luckily heard me yelling thinking the bike had fell on me and came running to help me from inside the house... I told him to lift it from the bars and we picked it up together ... Coolent spilled out and my heart was pounding I couldn't believe I did what I did I have no idea how I was able to hold it how I did because nothing got touched... And I always thought how could someone drop they're bike .... Double check everything you can and always watch your stand when putting the bike down off the stands

Similar happend to me, usually i remove the front stand and than the rear and put bike to rest on kick stand. Well stupid me i dont even remeber when i have removed the rear stand and bike was sitting only on front stand and when i removed it, bike start to go down on its right side and i i quickly moved and grab bike to handle and the rear subframe under the seat and i try to hold it and goes down and down and down untill tank touches my knees when stopped then and i got more power in my hands and i lift it up. I said fu.. Fu.. Fu.. , it was going to be disaster!!!

It's ok, my buddy dropped his twice... Once when his gf was getting on and he wasnt paying attention (lol). The other time was working on it, it literally fell off the stands when he went to do something else (maybe not the sharpest tool in the shed).
