Stunt advice

Not saying I'm gonna just go out and start stunting.. Not one of those things you just hop in to at my age (not that I'm THAT old or nothing)... But I'm curious.

Where's a good start? What size bike? What's more balanced and more forgiving? I mean if you had a new to the lifestyle cat you had to sit down and guide through the gears, which way would you take him?

I think when my mid life crisis happens, I'm more likely to try and build a track bike and race, but I love the art of stunting and would love to learn more. So what better place than from the start.. lol

"Get a 50 and learn back brake control"

^ quote for the ages.


Get a 50 and you can learn the basics of brake and throttle control plus it will be easy on your wallet when you crash or loop it. It's an amazing tool for learning on.

the torque of the busa makes for super easy power wheelies in 1st. at about 15 mph chop that , it'll stand up to the limiter at 82mph. i used to do it on my '05 and '07 busas. i think the fork seals are more durable too. I've had some pretty hard landings. the kind that blew seals on my gixxer 1k
careful though, it'll loop on ya.

The bike you say is harder to wheelie on than your 600? I was thinking of a cheap 250 or 600 naked.

I THINK if I do decide to start playing, it'll be a while before it's on the busa. Looping it is one thing, but have you seen the cost of plastics for that thing? lol

i'm not really a stunter, so take this for what it's worth. i did a bunch of power wheelies on my last busa and the guy who bought the bike from me called me and told me the front wheel was taco-ed. so even if your fork seals survive (mine did), the front rim might not.

my .2 cents, buy a twostroke 250 mx for cheap. like $1500. that's not that much more than a 50cc, and you won't be that worried about dropping it all the time either. those things wheelie like crazy with no clutch even.

2 strokes are not a very good wheelie learning platform, if you dont like the idea of a fiddy, get a 150 honda or 250 4 stroke and put some street rubber and go from there. Dirt tires tend to flop the bike. You can try and find a cheap 600 or even 250, but your just gonna be buying problems and it will be harder to learn on then a dirtbike. dirtbikes are so durable and cheap, and you can learn the basics of clutch and throttle control, balance point and benefits of rear brake control. XR100's and crf150 are perfect, and you can trail ride on them too. Just my 2 cents, ive done a few wheelies in my day
