How do you ride a wheelie on a 50 without crashing?

So what gear is best?

Standard rear sprocket ok?

Do you just keep giving it gas?

How much back brake and when?


I've been getting better BUT still eating it fairly often and was looking for some pointers.

Thanks

The way your 50 is set up is just fine for wheelies. When i first starting making wheelies on my 50, first gear felt the most comfortable. Then i started trying them in 2nd and at different speeds. The key is getting comfortable and practice practice practice.

You want to bring the front end high enough to where it feels like your on the verge of looping it. Use the throttle to keep in up and the rear brake to keep from going over backwards. If your in the balance point then you won't be accelerating. If you are speeding up trying to keep the front end up then your front end isn't high enough. Your just "chasing" the wheelie.

Repetition will make it easier because it becomes (to me anyways) more of a subconcious thing. You learn how the bike will react to your body position vs throttle vs braking, etc..


Like i said before, come out to MNM. It's alot easier to give/ use advice when your sitting on the bike.

A gear with a lot of torque in it is needed, you can change up the rear sprocket to give it more torque. Give it gas and pop that clutch out, this will make the front end hop up and wheelie. Keep your right foot on the rear brake, but don't hit it hard. Your going to want to easy off the gas slowly. On a big bike you can bust the seals doing wheelies and returning hard.

1. No.

2. You can but that a harder way to get a wheelie going IMHO. Just pull back and give it gas.

3. lol, you don't know that. Some rear 50 brakes suck. On these little bikes, you can slam the front end down with no worries. There are no fork seals to bust in the forks.

Coupla things to try:
  • Sit further back on the seat. This can make it a lil easier when learning.
  • Also, think about your center of gravity; let your core drop down on the seat. If you're doing this with your feet out, you may be unconsciously supporting your weight a bit.
  • Dunno how long you've been working at this, but if you're having trouble with the oh- factor, spend some time just yanking it up and walking off the back. Get your mind to accept that you can do this if necessary.

Coupla questions:

Are you trying from a stop or while moving?

Are you trying to start with a sit-down (feet up on pegs) or are they on the ground?
