Re: second gear wheelies

Trying to bring it up so the cop couldn't see your plates???




Try leaning back a little further when you goose the throttle the second time, and I don't know about your bike but on my last gixxer 600 it was easier to pull it up around 10-12k rpms it seemed like.

Re: second gear wheelies

Also9 I never really got into the bouncing part, all I would do is just lean back and goose the throttle twice and let the bike bounce on it's own, it seemed to me that having more weight near the rear of the bike helped more than anything, but I'm not one to give advice =(

Re: second gear wheelies

8-10k rpms is alright but if it doesn't work try a little higher. Also, you can push down on teh pegs but i think it's better to push down on the forks(you can do this with a combination of the pegs). YOu're trying to get the front wheel off the ground, so bounce the front. That's what i do.. and oviously it doesn't take that much force cause you've seen how big I am..

If that doesn't help you.. then it's your timing.. your bounce and throttle aren't in sync. Just mess around with it.. It only took me a day or so to bounce wheelies; a lot easier then clutching i think... Holla if you need help.

Re: second gear wheelies

clutching is better.. You get it up faster to BP and pop it in lower RPM's so you have more throttle to work with.. I use bouncing for high speed when i'm already high in the RPM's.

well like someone said it could just be the timing, but one thing that helped me get them up was to position my right hand further forward on the throttle (to where your knuckles are pointing down, if that makes sense) so that its easier to hit full throttle when your bringing it up... good luck

clutching it up may be better but i would think that doing them this way is alot easier on your clutch and drivetrain :dontknow:

once again after all that is said. when you want to bring them up with ease. clutch that up. :biggthumpup:

Where do yall get your information clutching is ALWAYS the best becuase it allows you to get to the balance point quicker. I guess those of you that bounce it up like to run out of gear and not maintain a speed below 90 mph. I know several people that can do slow on a liter bike for those that came to the Livewire/Asi stunt show saturday saw Josh from Outkastz doing everything on one. I guess some of you just dont know any better
