stunters M.I.A

So I live in the rankin/45 area and upgraded from an F2 to a yamaha R1. but I am pretty afraid of the new bike. I have been trying to find the stunters on my side of town cuz I feel that if I could master the wheelie or atleast learn it I will not be so afraid when the bike rdecides to lift on me.I am more of a racer but lately I have been loseing on the launch cause I am afraid to go anywhere near full throtle because of the lift. there used to be a group of stnters that would frequent the rankin area and they seemed to be a pretty cool group and encouragein anyone to get out there and learn would like to find that group again now that I have something that I am not embarassed to ride around others. any sugg. will help. thanx

im not sure what to say to this... maybe do a track day and get a trained instructor and learn some lines...

if you want some one to teach you power wheelies search craigslist for stunt lessons?

Hey whats up man! you shouldnt care what other say about your last ride man ! fk'em ! if your r1 is giving you that much trouble i suggest that you go to a 600 . They really arent bad bikes man ; and trust me the last thing you wanna do is try to wheelie that beast without feeling comfortable ... all i can say is if you do try to wheelie cover your back brake and smash that sucker down when you go to far back . but i think you should get a 600 to be on the safer side ; and hit a a track day up or possibly msf

I think he is referring to drag racing. Try a strap for the front end, it is in the tucker rocky catalog. You may also try my old school trick, get some stick-on tire balance weights, remove the front fender, line the bottom side of the fender with the stick on weights. Learn to slide the clutch on the launch, r-1 is not drag race friendly IMO.

I posted this in the in stunters lounge cuz for 1 I did not know there was a brick wall between stunters and racers and two because I respect and think it would help my rideing to learn the control you guys have over your bikes. You seemed to be able to manipilate and balance your bikes better than any other form of rideing and any one could use that in rideing. sorry if I offended anyone just wanted help.

1. learn to slide clutch
2. strap for front
3. learn to replace clutchs(you will do it often), get a micrometer and learn to measure stack height, you will need to maintain this after every weekend of drag racing.

until you have mastered these three things dont ask anymore questions.

first i would just say seat time man.. more you ride the more you'll feel good on your bike.. But the new 600s that are out are going to be in my opinion considerably quicker than the older 600s. Old technology vs. new technology is a big difference but the rider will make the biggest difference. I say just put in some seat time whenever or where ever you can.

I agree, if you are afraid of a R1 than move down to an R6. The last thing you want to do is ride something you are afraid of.
