Tapping back brake In a stoppie

Lately Ive been practicing rolling endos at my lot in Waco, and some of the riders (not stunters) tell me to stop the back wheel before setting an endo down because it stresses the chain alot.

True or False?

i dont see how stopping it with your brake or stopping it with the ground is any different...
also dont see how its any more stress than normal riding would cause.

My only conclusion would be that if a wheel is doing 35+ mph spinning in the air, sets down on the ground that is at a standstill would = instant stretch.

..But wouldnt clutching a bike up put the same amount of stress on a chain??

thats what im thinking, i really dont think its going to make a bit of a difference. Also stopping the rotation of the wheel is going to pitch you forward a little bit.

Tap for a quieter landing and better control.

I would have to think you would cause more wear on your cush drive than the chain...but what do I know?

Not a stunter by any means, but...I would think you would want to keep the rear wheel spinning as it should help to stabilize the bike.

Tapping the brake before you set the rear tire down makes you look smoother. Locking the rear tire up during the initial snap or lift will help you carve wide stoppies. It can also reduce noise allowing you to focus and be more in tune with what your bike is doing. I am not sure what stopping the rear tire before you set it down actually does but it feels better and I always felt it was easier on the transmission.

I actually prefer opening the throttle wide open during a stoppie, so when I land, it immediately goes into a 12 oclock wheelie.

It's not going to stress your chain enough for you to even notice, if any.

I think hitting the rear brake would just give you more control when landing witch looks better!

Doing a stoppie should not hurt your forks or seals at all.
