why do you need to lower tire pressure to wheelie?

it helps with traction on the clutch up and also with side to side balance. basically just makes it more stable side to side

Come on brahs its not rocket science , the flat tires were back in the day straight line idle stuff no handed wheelies,bar tricks and such, once they started turning circles and doing long endoes the bikes started going back to oem . Hand brakes are one step further you should know how to ride regular wheelies on a 43 tooth or a 71 tooth sproket by the time you get a hand brake set up ,the word idle wheelies means you are no longer fighting it ,the bike is weightless and your only working your back brake. Wheelies are fun as not hard but then again if it was easy every one would be doing it. You cant pick that up in a month or two it takes time and dont expect not to crash because i promice you will .Not every one has the same set up on the bikes either, their just like girls sum have big tities sum big bootys you just work your way around them.
