50's riders...

I tried to do a wheelie on it, and I found out it is a lot harder then it look. I can do on the 600 with ease. I don't know what are your secrets in doing stoppies or wheelie on it, but fill me in. On a good note; if it get too high, I can just hop right off and run with it. lol

its a stock xr50. what do i need to do to it?

I stay in NW area and got a spot that a few of my buddies and I go to to practice the 600s. Cops there are cool. One even came in and talk to us and asked about the bikes. He knew we were playing around, but he just say "Ya have fun now. Just do me a favor, just don't crash."

can't do it tonight. Going to a friend's dinner party tonight. Pm me your number and I'll hit you up when we head out to the spot.

chase: kinda new to the 50's game, but why do I need a big bar? Also what will a stiffer spring do?
I still have the little boy riding it, so I don't want to mod it too much to where it's too much for him.

I'm thinking of a manual clutch kit. Any option on these?

it feel weird shifting without clutch lol
I can't even get it up high enough to even try to balance it. what's the tip for getting up so easily? I rev in neutral and pop in 1st, or go in first and rev as i shift to 2nd. Pulled as it some what goes up.

just lean back and gas it! Seriously though try wheelieing ith your feet on the ground dragging along side the 50. kind of like a buffer. that helps you find balance point and gets rid of the fear of falling off of the seat.

PRACTICE, its all about finding that point where you feel its about to go over backwards, it will feel like the front end is weightless, it can only really come with alot of trial and error. try doing it in first going about 1mph and try and get it up to balance point with as little gas as possible and then using balance to keep it there. Big bar kit just keeps it easier for you to fit, and makes wheelies easier, but if you have a little one, just keep it stock. clutch kit is not a good idea for the little one, and not neccesary for wheelies. Practice makes perfect, come out to mnm and see what its all about

Nah man , if you learn drags first , then you have to learn feet on peg wheelies . Twice the work .
