Please don't think I'm serious...I've never attempted a wheelie, nor will I

The wait is wonderful

cover your rear brake with your right foot ALWAYS. and stand on the passenger peg with your left foot. get roliing about 10 mph and pull in the clutch and rev the engine up and keep it there and let out the clutch. keep reving it higher and higher each time til the front end pops up almost to the balance point. let the front come up on its own never pull the front end up it can come up crooked if you do that and itll end bad. if it starts leaning to one side lean your body very slightly in the same direction and it will turn the bike that direction and correct it

1st. Much more engine braking than any other gear. And when learning standing is usually best it gives you better control over the bike.
