the quick answer to your question is give it more gas.

however, the right answer is to get a smaller motorcycle and learn how to do a controlled wheelie before you kill yourself. imagine looping at 80mph in 2nd gear. because a power wheelie or pull up as you call it feals predictable until you are actually floating at balance. and because you have never felt balance and that floating sensation your gunna loop guranteed. so you can listen to what im sayin and understand that the reason most stunt riders are dicks when it comes to giving advice is because they dont wanna see you get hurt. or you can do what you prolly will wich is just keep trying until you loop or get it or get scared.

see above where i already said i dont stunt.
but from what ive read here and there seems to be the thing to do when you are learning how to get to the BP..

but i see where youre going with this and i guess i agree, why cover the brake, just throw your feet over the bars and give it a go. you will figure it out eventually.

I see you have 1 yr experience and only 8 posts, so I'm gonna say what i always say in threads like this...


Wheelies on the street are classified as "Reckless endangerment" which can get you a night in jail and can carry a felony charge. Just so you know.
You didn't say anything about doing it on the street I just thought you should know.

knowledge about usage is more important.
