Your Balance Point?

Just wondering what your balance point feels like? I still havent hit it on the gixxer. I remember what it felt like when i rode motocross ....really touchy and easy to loop it. Is it like that on a 600?

Whats your balance point feel like and what bike are you on? Sketchy?Predictable? Slow? Oh $hit ,felt it once and never again? I thought it was predictable until i looped it?

i had a wr250x and th balance point was easy to hit and easy to ride without any discomfort.. now after i got my 600rr that i had, it was a huge difference.. it felt like (at first) it was harder to hit and felt like you had to get the bike wayyy up to stay there.. the more i practiced, the more comfortable and easy it got. Both were very predictable once i got a good feel for both of the bikes and the power deliveries.

pull in the clutch while stopped, throttle up to about 13K and dump the clutch... but be ready with the back brake, it'll come up fast. that is a wheelie

Youtube son haha.


The reason im asking about the balance point is because im wanting to know what it feels like once you get there. Is it really easy to go past it and loop?
Im doing second gear clutch ups so its not as twitchy as first initially. I just havent taken it all the way up to the balance point yet, because i dont know whats gonna happen.

I got to the point where i revved up to 13k, then some guy asked me what iw as doing and i told him some guy on MH gave me advice on what to do. He told me not to and that the guy was being a smartass and didnt really want to help.

if you do exactly what i told you, it'll wheelie, just be ready to let off really quick and catch it with the back brake. it's hard to learn clutch up wheelies and BP without at least 1 crash, just ask grubz

That sounds like most people here.

But i really would like someone to show me if someone did i know i could get it, But im willing to pay for someones time. I know that cash sounds better than free to most people.

im halfway there to decent clutch-up's, take it real easy and practice like a , that'l minimize the chance of looping... from personal experience reaching bp is scary as sh*t if you're not expecting it.
