I kickstart mine on the center stand with me on it. That's the only place I can get my leg up high enough to get on the kick starter.
But it kickstarts quite easily.

If you'd only shave, LWT, you'd lose enough weight that your steel centerstand wouldn't threaten to buckle under your mass every time you kickstarted off it.

I don't have a centre stand!
