okay so here's a dumb question ... but what does "slipping the clutch" really mean?

Just what it sounds like, nudge the throttle a bit & pull the clutch in a split second & release.... wheelie time!!

You can do it while accelerating also. Let's say you are accelerating in third. There is a load on the engine but the throttle is wide open. This is where you would slip the clutch to help you wheelie. If you pull in the clutch for just a moment it will take the load off of the engine. The engine will the rev as if in neutral, that is why you only do it for a moment. As you release the clutch back out, the engine now has momentum. It is reving faster than needed for the speed of the bike in it's current gear. When the clutch re-engages there will be a surge of power, maybe enough to cause the bike to wheelie.

Slipping the clutch is how racers often get a better start. Dirt bike riders do it a lot to get better drive, particularly on two strokes. With a lot of talent you can get a lot from this technique. The difference is, the you are trying to wheelie it's more of a dump or sudden release of the clutch. When racers are trying to launch or get better drive, they slip it gradually.

Unless your wanting to learn how to wheelie in a parking lot, I wouldnt want to teach you due to the sole fact, that I dont want to be responsible for you wanting to wheelie on the streets.....capice? :dontknow:

if you wanna learn, go to utube and search "how to wheelie" watch the 10ish minute video, and apply what you saw. or start hanging out with guys that wheelie and ask them questions..


biggest thing, you have to have a SACK. if you have peanut size nuts, you'll never learn, or it will take you a year. just let em hang and rip that up. i learned on a stock yzf600r. perfected the wheelie and the "idle" (slow) wheelie withought EVER wrecking my bike. you just gotta let em hang.

the advice that came in handy for me.

2nd gear is easier to control
COVER THE BACK BRAKE, if it feels like its going to loop over backwards use the brake to bring it back.
lastly with "idle" wheelies, turn your idle up to about 4k rpm (this also makes slower (not quite idle, but maybe 10-15mph) wheelies easier (smoother)


other than that, the rest is just learning how to use the clutch to get it up, learning how much to rev it, how much to lean/bounce, and learning what balance point is.

goodluck

Side fairings and upper would be a start. If your wanting to learn how to stunt, be prepared to fall......ALOT......

Frame sliders for now, but a cage would be a wise investment in the near future.....
