Wheelies Improving :)

I'm really excited about my wheelies. I have been improving tremendously over the past few months. I remember starting out, and popping the clutch and the front wheelie would come off the ground a few inches and it scared the out of me. Now I know the feeling and what the bike is going to do whether I pop the clutch or power wheelie. The other day I power wheelied to bp and rode a short distance, it felt really good. I can clutch wheelie a pretty good distance and its fun, but I can feel that the bike is not at the bp. Anyone have any tips? I have not had any bad experiences yet, and I also have a hard problem covering the rear brake. I do all my wheelies in first gear. I don't have that much power since my bike is a 600. Anyways, just felt like rambling about something.

Thanks for listening,

TeXasGiXXer

stop power whoolieng...seriously...clutching it up is a whole lot better.....it's normal for you to feel like that. Eventually, you'll get to the point where your comfortable wheeling it out a good distance. Just start out slow giving it a little and then when your comfortable with that give it a little more....but remember to ALWAYS ALWAYS ride within your capabilities

when I clutch wheelie, I can ride about 100 ft. or something like that, but it's not on balance point. When I power wheelie, I can go about 200 ft. Of course I can't ride far, power wheelie at about 10k (1st gear 50 mph or so) red line and wheel drops. They are both a lot of fun.

Wheelies on 1st gear are pretty aggressive, good chance of flipping the bike over. Try clutching it on 2nd gear at a higher rpm.

yeah but when you power wheelie it'll just run out till it redlines as opposed to clutching it up you have a little more room to play with......plus you'll be going alot farther than 100 - 200ft. try not to wheelie in first gear at that rpm or speed....try second gear around 4 to 6 rpms......it'll come up alot easier and alot less squrrlier (sp)........

I will try clutching second gear later this afternoon. I will be have to go pretty slow to pop it up in second, when moving about 40 and clutch second, front wheel only comes up about 6 inches. I will give it a shot, and let you guys know.

Dont decide on clutching it by how fast your going, try looking at your rpm's which really counts. On your bike, 1st gear should pop up easily @ 4rpm, 2nd gear 7-8 rpm.

yeah....but is that clutching it up or power wheeling? I mean, when I had my stock gears I could clutch it up 2ft or more at like 3 rpms
