Another good idea is to have an experienced rider show you how. It's never a bad idea to draw on another persons experience

If i were you id try 2nd gear at 10k rpms all full throttle and slip the clutch all at 100% full throttle.... i know it sounds crazy cause you will be doing like 70 mph but the more momentum forward you have the harder it is to 12 o clock it (atleast for me). If that doesnt work lower the rpms a bit. After awhile you can play with the rpms and throttle to get it up at lower revs.

No, fck that shit. Just have a buddy video tape you while you practice so you can see how much you've improved over time.

Re: Wheelie Question!!!!!

so i went out and tried them today!!
but man clutch wheelies are so hard for me to do i dont wann give it too much gas when i pull in the clutch im just too scared to loop the thing again!!

but i did do some power wheelies they seem much more easier to me then the clutch ones...i just go in first at abt 20mph and hit hard on the gas and it just comes up pretty nice ..let off and it goes back down !

Re: Wheelie Question!!!!!

Re: Wheelie Question!!!!!

First question is are you trying to learn first gear slow idle or street wheelies. BIG difference.

Re: Wheelie Question!!!!!

Clutch-ups in first are a bit of a doozey. Try 2nd instead.
