The first one (early this year) the bolt that holds the spring pulled out of the aluminum kickstand allowing all of the supporting pieces to fall off. Bought an OEM replacement and did exactly two rides. This past weekend the bike was parked in our campsite and the ground was just slightly soft allowing the kickstand to sink in an inch or so. I didn't think anything of it until the bike tipped over a few hours later. After picking it up I saw that the kickstand had broken right across the plane of the bolt which secures it to the frame. For the record, no I do not stand or sit on the bike while on the stand, use it to pivot the bike, or otherwise abuse the kickstand.
