Thats a suzuki, not a china . But looks like a 2 stroke and will be difficult to learn on for other reasons as well.

50's arent that easy to wheelie. Not for me anyway. Something a bit bigger would suit me.

No clue about the 50, but along the same lines we were thinking of getting this for learning wheelies on our own bikes:

http://www.wheelieteach.com/

Anybody here ever used it? Wanting to learn really just for the ability to control the landing should it ever happen accidentally. (Already happened to someone I know and love accidentally, they got lucky and landed it.)

Main concerns in learning of course is that the device

A) doesn't damage the bike
B) keeps the bike from dumping over

Any first hand knowledge on it would be greatly appreciated.

waist of money.............. wont EVER really teach you how to FIND your balance point on your own. All it does is let you feel what its like to hold a wheelie. But a 50 and work your way up to the big bike

Get a "GIXXER" 1000 like every one is doing. It's so easy just twist and vwalla, wheelie. It also it helps to have the top gun theme song, danger zone, playing through earbuds. IMO that is the best recipe.

you could learn to wheelie on that bike. But it would be much easier on a honda 50. That bike isn't anywhere near the quality of a honda 50 and does not have the torque of a honda 50 either.

I doubt that JR 50 has enough power to wheelie anyways. It's NOT the same calibur of 50cc as an XR 50. Not knocking Suzuki vs. Honda...they are just VERY different bikes.

Well.... looking for a XR / CRF 50 set up for a 200+ rider ready to wheelie (learn) etc.

If you have one that you want to sell let me know.

Thanks for all the good advice
