power wheeling in third isnt all that hard. I wouldnt gear it down to do it, but pull that clutch, rev her high, then pop the clutch. Bam, you got a wheelie in 3rd gear.

I think there is some confusion in here.

And even with the clutch it would still be hard, assuming you don't bounce it.
IMO if you bounce it and power it becomes real easy to loop it.

Evidently you have no idea what a power wheelie is.

What ever you want to call it, I don't care. We have different terms depending on were you are. Maybe Im wrong but hey, thats what i called it. You got a better name?:fact
Power wheelies use no clutch, just jerk the throttle and maybe bounce the front a bit to help get it up.

Clutchup wheelies or clutching it up uses the clutch to get it up.


Power wheelies are more dangerous because they require higher speeds as well as continued acceleration to keep them up.



But you're right, it doesn't really matter, since wheelies are lame anyways. :fact
