listen to mekrew and hpd they'll teach you all about throttle and back foot brake control...make sure you pull the foot brake out a couple of inches away from the motor, then go from a 4-5mph roll and pop up the front wheel and tap the rear FOOT brake to set it back down...you gotta learn to trust that back brake.. keep doing it over and over till you have muscle memory to where your foot hits that brake before you think about it...

looks like you aren't dragging your feet....looks more like you are trying to walk with the bike. let your feet slide....it should be flat on the ground. practice that, then when you're comfortable with that, pick the left foot up, then both

Man I can't get my to sit down wheelie at all....I am basically sitting on the back fender, rolling about 5 mph and jerk the throttle while I tug on the bars pretty hard and I can barely bounch the front off the ground...Every now and then I get lucky, get the timing just right and it snaps up about a foot and thats hit.....no where near the balance point...I guess I just need to practice more but...... I got staggards and rear peg stand ups down pretty good because its easy to get it up.

Practice more...

Check this out...

So I put the rear street tire on and then bent my foot brake out so that my foot covers it where they sit naturally on the peg. I didn't use my feet today at all. The tire made a helluva difference. I learned to trust the back brake like what was suggested.

After about 30 minutes...I HAD IT! Now I am in 2nd gear riding wheelies until the road runs out! I just get rollin a few mph in 2nd gear...yank, lean back and then just work the throttle. I am basically sitting half on the fender and seat. When you find the bp...you know it and it is sweet~

No one out there with me today so no pics. I'll try and get some tomorrow. Thanks for all the advice. I incorporated it all.

I started feet down. Did it for like 1 1/2 hours cause I read something about it. Then I followed some of the suggestions in this thread. Next day I started feet up in 1st. Within 30 minutes I was feet up in second riding all the way down the street. I think putting the street tire on the rear was key. Then "trusting" the rear brake. I understood that one totally.
