true but i dont have the slightest clue how to do a stoppie.* wheelies are pretty basic but not easy IMO. My luck I'll hit the front brakes to hard and flip.

Trick is not to hit the front brakes but to squeeze them until the rear comes up to a desired height. If you hit them you will end up flipping.... stoppies are about smooth brake operation. Keep your knees locked on the tank to or you will have some sore . Over and Out. right:

i usually roll into the stoppie at about 50mph slowly pull the front brake till the forks compress then pull the brake a lil harder till the rear comes up. The harder i pull after teh forks are compressed the higher it gets.
Im not that good though still learning.

i fucken LOVE stoppies!!!! It was the first trick i learned when i got my bike. took me about three tries before i got the back up. i started out very small. going about 20mph., lockin my knees into the tank, compress the fork with the brakes, then pop the brakes little harder to bring the back up. you can do it at first without picking your off the seat. this is good to do till you get comfortable with the whole stoppie concept. Once you get a little comfortable with 'em, you can pick your off the seat a little and this will really help bring the back up faster and easier, so be ready for it. Stoppies are relatively easy and somewhat safe cuase your usually not going that fast(as opposed to a wheelie). Also, don't forget about your pads and rotors. You want to know whether you brakes are hot or cold becuase they act differently. I try to warm them up first. They'll warm up after a few stops. I wouldn't recommend going over 30mph till you got a really good grip on stoppies, but thats just IMO.

Some things to watch out for. Make sure you COMPRESS THAT FRONT FORK. If it's not compressed good enough, you'll lock up the front tire and just drag it and possibly crash. Also, make sure you're on a good, LEVEL, surface. If it's crooked, you'll either crash or you'll feel the bike want to turn -eyed on you in the air. So when the back somes donw, it will be somewhere other that where you wanted it, thus causeing a lay-down. This happens a lot.

When i got my bike i couldn't do any wheelies due to the breakin period, so by the time i had it broken in, i had my stoppies mastered pretty good. Now i can roll them for a little bit and im workin on 180's. Oh, did i already say i LOVE stoppies?
, i coulda wrote a book by now. :laughing6: :laughing6:

Re: Knee in the seat

that is the technique but when you go to press bounce on the seat it makes it come up easier and uses less break so you can go longer.

Re: Knee in the seat

man.....im gettin some good tips here.....i was the same way when I first got my bike....since I was breakin mine in....first thing I learned to do were stoppies.....a couple of my friends that I talked to told me that stoppies are harder than wheelies.....well I was always to scared to do wheelies....im just now gettin a lil better at them but still won't stand up.....i just keep thinkin that I'm gonna go to far back....but as for stoppies.....i think they are so much easier....in the last couple of weeks I've been gettin better in distance......its all in how u control that brake pedal....as soon as u feel like the bike is going to far up....let go of that brake...theres more of a chance that ull come back down with a lil unbalance than flipping over...and lock those knees...i busted my nutz so hard once in the first days I was practicing that I had to put the bike up and lay down for the rest of the day.....now as for wheelies....any tips that yall can give me so I can hold it up longer....i can bring it up in 2nd by clutching it....ill keep it up for less than 3 seconds though...wats the trick or tip to actually keeping that front wheel up in the air...keep in mind that I'm still a p***y and a bit scared bout standing up.....but if standing up is the way then ill practice more.....but I would like to hear some tips from the pro's

thats a long post. but the key is getting comfortable to get teh bike high enough to find the balance point then you can begin to ride them out further and further

Re: Knee in the seat

well I just read the article in the how to do wheelies section and I got a lot of great info from there...now tje part I have a question about is the balance point to ride a long wheelie.....from the people I talked to...i heard that the balance point on an 05 R6 is at almost 12 o'clock.....but don..for yall that no him(04 blue R1) whenever he drives his wifes 05 R6, he says he'll hold those wheelies up witjh no prob and doesn't really notice the balance point.....so I think I'm gonna go and practice with him a bit too see if I can get some pointers....
