wheelie progress

hey guysI've been doing or trying wheelies for about a month now and I can get the front wheel up second gear clutch ups now but the only time I can actually ride wheelies is in first gear and RPM's redline way too fast. The front wheel comes up about 3 feet and I ride the wheelie to redline. But that only lasts about 5 seconds. I would like to work more on second gear clutch ups. I just need more pointers. I can get the front wheel up just fine for my own comfort. It comes up 3 feet or just alittle higher but the bike just drops back down.
Any tips??

There's a couple of stunt guys here so I'm sure they'll chime in.

But you might get a few flames lol

Re: wheelie progress

You're clutching it up below BP and trying to ride your way to BP and running out of RPMs. I like to call them squid wheelies. Try clutching it up higher and actually using your rear brake.

You'll understand when you get there.

Re: wheelie progress

Thanks ridick. Ill I tried that out and I am riding them a lot konger but I still end up redlining. Im using the back break but I just dont seem to hit the BP. I feel like im there but I know im not. I just have to keep working on bringing it up higher. But I dony want to rush into it.

Re: wheelie progress

I'm slowly learning too. Here is my squid wheelie. I haven't tried clutching up higher and back braking it yet. Still need to get comfortable with the wheel being up higher. Balance point feels like I'm going to loop it...
