Thanks for the tips guys, I def need to get a 50. Ive been riding everyday for a 1 1/2 gotta -1 +2 gearing on ma bike and I can say I do know my bike inside out. But I guess I just need more to get that front tire up high enough to maintain a balance point and I believe the 50 will knock a little of that fear outta me.

you can learn on a bicycle to, bp is bp

If it helps get comfortable with your left foot on the back peg and just start slowly picking it up not trying to actually ride a wheelie yet and just paractice practice untill you get it up easily, dont try your first 10 or 20 tries, once you start just try some small ones and have someone video you so you can see just how far you have to go, its nowhere what you will be thinking it is. stand ups are so easy because you can push or pull the bike and your not just setting there. whats hard ( to me ) is stand ups on the front pegs, maybe Im to tall ?

Make sure you start from.an almost dead stop. So you have a consistent starting point.

It's been a while since "punisher" has brought blood... you can come learn on my 50 if you want, but bring new brake levers... you'll probably break one.

Ive never had to "pull back" or "lean back" to help a wheelie. Any modern 600+cc bike has plenty power to stand straight up off either the clutch or throttle. Seems like I only use my body to help steer longer ones.

I learned sitting down and even on the busa I can easily see over the windscreen. When I had sit-downs locked up I decided to stand up and just stood up on the pegs as I brought the bike up - I was nervous about it but stand-ups actually turned out to be easier. It gets to the point where you can just bring the bike up without even thinking about how to do it - just becomes second nature.

I'm scared of the 50, though, lol. I can wheelie the big bikes a long way but I suck on the little bikes - and have hurt myself.

Slick Rick, baby! What it dew!

(I probably shouldn't be giving advice so don't listen to me - but I found it easier to learn with the throttle rather than the clutch. Over time I've found that clutching is smoother and easier but at first it was too unpredictable for me. I never felt sure about how far back the bike was going to come when using the clutch. Just felt like I had more control and could better moderate the wheelie using the gas. Once I got comfortable with how the bike came up I started practicing clutch-ups. But really, any real stunter will probably tell you to use the clutch. Just sharing what worked with me.)

every1 learns different, but the best way to learn how to CONTROL a wheelie is to start on a 50
