n00b question for you stunters

I been tryin my a$$ off to carry a long whoolie and it just aint happenin. I might get 100ft of blissful lifted action and then right back down.

So here is my question: My bike is not stunted, its got a 520 conversion but thats it....So when clutchin a 2nd gear whoolie, do you guys just get your throttle control perfect so that you pretty much jump right into BP, or do you guys throw it a little past BP and use the brake to bring it back in.

I can get the wheel in the air no prob, but I either get too high and let too much throttle off to keep it up, or just barely dont make it high enough and pretty much do an "acceleration wheelie" through 2nd gear. I wanna do long wheelies so bad, but I need help, so any and all info would be fantastic.

eff clutchin it just bounce that ... put it in 2nd gear get the rpms a lil high where you feel the power come on a lil.... were its real jumpy then bounce the front end down and when its on its way up give it some gas... its going to come up quick... but you cant be scared to pull it back to balance point.. thats why your not stayin up cause your not at bp...... you should also be able to do the same in 3rd gear....

u have to be going to fast to bounce it.. :eh:

get it around 45 mph.. in 2nd.. or where ur powerband starts in 2nd gear..

clutch it up right under bp.. lean back roll it up using the throttle lightly to bp and apply rear to keep it stable..

some people allways hold the rear brake and use that as a means of control.. but thosee guys are the techy ones that do the circles and bullshit.. its scary when u get tooo high.. and let off the gas and the front end doesnt come back down... so ALWAYS cover the REAR.. ALWAYSS

go ahead racerx have at it

You said a 520 conversion but what changes did you make to the gearing? If it is still stock gearing you are not going to bounce up on an R6 and will have to pop the clutch around 7 or so and throttle the rest. If the gearing changed then just give it some gas and pull.

I'd work it up slowly.. looks liek your not anywhere near your BP. So just give it a little more gas each time when popin the clutch. I'd say bounce that if you're on the street. And no, you don't have to go that fast, just have to be near your powerband.
