Stand Ups

Any advice on pulling stand up wheelies? What's the easiest way to pull them? Should I start in a sitting position and then stand up? It feels awkward to be trying to stand up and just haunched over, feels really odd. It that normal?

Any advice?

I started 'em standing up hunched over. Then as you get comfortable riding 'em standing, you can stand up as you lift the wheelie and it feels really natural.

Didn't you say you were barely improving on your wheelies last week? And now your ready for stand ups? Be careful...

I found stand ups to be alot easier than sit downs. Control was easier to be had.

hey brandon, just stand up and bounce the front end up while rolling on the gas. make sure you get your sit down wheelie landings smooth before you move on to stand ups.

fork seal replacement is expensive :BangHead:

$150.00 to $350.00.
It depends, on or off the bike, inverted or conventional forks, factory seals or no name (read will leak), cartridge disassembly and cleaning or straight seal change, but that's pretty much the range.

I think the point being made is; learn to land your wheelies softly.
When you mouse trap not only does it impact the forks, but the steering head bearings and frame take a beating from it.

Early GSXR's ('00 - '03) were notorious for cracking in several places if they were stunted hard. It wasn't uncommon to weld them up regularly.

Nope, gave up wheelies a long time ago after I lost a couple of friends who were doing highway stuff.
But, I have worked on a ton of stunt bikes, and have had a Hooligan or two work for me, still do now that I think about it.:icon_bigg

Meh, my bike is worth too much to me to throw it all over the pavement if i screwed up..... My life is worth to much to me and my family. Ive never been one to pratice wheelieing , you might see the front end lift a little on a hard throttle in first gear everynow and then....but thats about it.

hey pat hows the bike coming.....

to the original post man its all about being comftorable when i started stand ups i did them just standing on the pegs normaly....After about 2 weeks of getting the scared out of me i desided to try staggerds in my opinion its much easier to learn standups staggered style.... The big thing when your bigging at first you dont think the bike will ever come up but thats becouase you have all your weight on the front becouase your scared so lean back a little cover that rear brake and use that clutch!!!!!

If you arent comftorable clutch up sitdowns then i wouldnt even bother trying standups.... You can do the ol bounce then power if you want but i promis you once you learn to clutch you will never go back....

+1 on this....just remember to always always practice in a controlled environment....and no I don't mean the highways or street's. Please do so in a safe condition....lately been having toooo many bikers out there get hurt and would hate to find out you were one of them.....it takes alot of skill to do what B.S Motorsports and javi and what prodigy do as well as any other "true" stunter out there....Just always ride safe and practice practice practice.......

like patrick said $150 -$350 is right...and thats not expensive
the head bearing and getting your frame welded back together can be more costly...if a wheelie is slamming down hard catch it with the throttle..end of sory

Hahahaha..that was meant for TexasGixxer..oops

and it's spelled "story".......
