question about clutches

if i clutched up my bike is second a few inches and chased with the throttle, if i kept on it can it flip? sorry new ground maybe a stupid question

also right before coming back down im supposed to roll on the throttle a little or a lot? to soften the impact, will it come back up from that?

I really cant understand what your asking man. When down shifting, pull in the clutch shift down and bring the rpms up slightly as your feather out the clutch.

I am just perfecting my shifting on my bike and ive had it for about a month.

sorry let me try and clarify lol it is abit cluttered now that i read it again

i will get my front wheel up a few inches in 2nd gear using the clutch, havent been trying to go any higher. but im curious to know if i chased it with throttle does a 600 have enough power to loop from that? and also when i drop the bike down im supposed to give some a throttle to soften the landing right? but when i do that will the bike have enough power to pick itself back up.

hopefully thats a little better

Ahh your trying to do wheelies, I have no clue how to explain it. But I do know if you come down to hard you will crack the frame. Suzuki mainly, but still the bikes not meant to be dropped hard up front. When doing a wheelie you can either pop one out in 1st gear by popping the clutch out and leaning back, its going to feel a lil awkward.

I haven't done them on my street bike yet but dirt bikes its a different story.

Chasing a wheelie is never a good idea. Keep clutching up in increments until you're nearing balance point. Using your clutch and knowing how much throttle is gonna to get you to balance point is way more predictable than chasing it out or powpowering it up. Also depends if your goal is to pop a wheelie or ride a wheelie. It's always gonna feel higher than it actually is. For instance if you're sitting down and you look down your forks and you can't see what's in front of you, you're not high enough. And yes some throttle on the way down will soften your landing.how much you will just have to feel it out. Get a 50 and learn brake control!

If you roll on right when you come down it should help save your fork seals and radiator. They take a beating from hard landings.

As for will it come back up or wheelie over... it all depends on defferent factors.

It's not gonna sneak up and flip you like a 2 stroke dirt bike will, especially if your weight is over the front. Of course you can flip it quick if you rev to high and dump the clutch though.
