How to wheelie on a 50?

I got a stock yamaha ttr 50 besides having a set of big bars on it. I cant seem to get it to wheelie. The only way I can get it to wheelie is by reving it up in first and poppin it in to second. That doesnt seem to be the way to do them. Bruisein my tailbone up. Any advice would be sweet. Sure is alot easier on a big bike.

1. put it in first gear
2. plant both feet on the groud
3. give it some throttle while pulling back
4. learn throttle control while both feet are on the ground
you'll be moving forward with both feet kind of sliding on the ground helping you balance
(wear old shoes they get torn up)

once you can do this for extended amounts of time
repeat the steps above but this time put your right foot on the peg (also learning to use the rear brake)

once you can do this pick up both feet

Plus, Ownage's Wheelie School. He had Brena and I doing five thousand pull-up-hit-da-back-brakes-every-yellow-line till I was sick of it. :laughing6 Oh yeah, and some very helpful advice I received once was this:

"Well, I tell all the guys, and you don't have any but you know, put your nuts at the end of the seat. Let your almost hang off."

Or slt. :icon_bigg The thing I took away from it was to keep trying new seat positions.

One more thing. I had a tendency to stare down at the bars. . .things improved when I started looking straight ahead. Maybe a dumb little thing, but every little thing helps.

Well I am no expert I would propose pegging the throttle all the way while in first gear. It will come up incredibly fast but don't worry just keep it pegged.
