Get it up to about 8k rpm, whack the throttle and up it goes. Hang on and cover the back break.

For pow pows at least.

I use to get my 04 R1 up by slipping the clutch . I would accelerate pretty hard and when it was at 5500-6000 rpm just slip the clutch and give it a little more gas . If its factory geared it will come up slow and smooth then just play with the throttle to the balance point . Its got a lot of rpm to work with

everyone says get a 50... Its only good for learning brake control in my opinion. I can wheelie the out of my street bike, but I had a hard time on the 50.

Yeah, I was riding Highway wheelies sit downs and standups for years, got on the 50 and couldn't ride it 20 feet.... haha Much respect to the ones that do do it... To me its alot harder than a big bike.

that is the point isn't it? learn on something slower and closer to the ground, but harder. Get on the big bike and it should be a cinch w/o having to crash the expensive one.

ehh its kinda 50/50 in my opinion. now that i learned to ride a 50 well its soooo much easier.... the basic of having a 50 before a bif bike is just learn brake control...then you go up to somthing with a clutch and learn to clutch it high and catch it with the rear brake......BUT some peoples experiences may vary. we used to teach people on a xr100 and it worked pretty good
