Wheelie Question

I can power my bike up in first gear and feel it coming up light but quick, i always let off the throttle and tap the back brake...

but i dont have any experience in wheelies, always been random power wheelie here and there

my question is, is there anything i can do to practice on my RC51? i find it almost impossible to power up in 2nd and trying to clutch it up in 2nd just makes the wheel spin out, odd i think. but im sure im just not doing it right or something.

but any input is accepted, i just want to take it easy and learn to get it to balance point for a little. nothing special.

i know everyone will say to get a 50 or stunt bike to practice, i do plan to get a 50 soon, but for now i'd like to get a few tips for my long straight streets.

thanks, sorry for being a squid!

bounce it...meaning stand up...weight the bars really quick, and when the forks rebound have a hand full of throttle and gap it wide open.....this should work in third around 60mph...atleast it does on my 750.

but seriously...clutching in 2nd spins the wheel? check your rear tire air pressure...i'm thinking you'll need to lower it to around 30 lbs.

I had an rc 51 for awhile and it was def. The hardest bike to wheelie ever. Way too much torque. Super heavy and spun most off the time. And when I did dip beyond balance the tip switch would kill the bike. I would not recommend even trying on this bike.

With that much torque, I would stay away from the 1st gear power wheelie. Are u standing up or sitting down? Try 2 nd around 50 or 60, practice standing up and bounce the front end. I have to clutch my gsxr 600 , but you should have np with a hand full of throttle.

Id like to try and do a wheelie but I dont wanna wreck and waste all that money just for getting one wheel off the ground. So my adrenaline will have to wait until I a 50, get a stunt bike, or a friend tells me he doesnt care if i wreck HIS

+1000000000 your asking for trouble practicing on this bike. Even more so seeing you have little or no experience with wheelies. If it were me man i owuld hold out for that 50 youll soon be getting.

Don't worry, scrot. There are plenty of 'tards out there living really kick- lives.

Buy a 50...
Learn throttle & brake control.

Stunt that little gsxr you have before you destroy such a kick bikes. I only know one other RC51 on the boards.

That bike is really uncommon and rare.
