my advice to you is get your own 50 and just start comin out to the lots. there will be other 50 riders that will help you out. then when you atleast have circles on your 50 i would say your good to move over to the big bike.

dont pay some fool to show you how to wheelie!!! just save your money and keep practicing like everyone else. check youtube and other sites that can tell you everything about it without paying for it

practice man practice!!

i had an '03 crb600rr and after i got comfortable on it and used to it, i could easily pull it up in 1st, 2nd or 3rd.. learn how it feels poppin the clutch at different speeds and rpms. best for me was 2nd gear,run through the gear until your up to about 8-9 grand, rev to about 15,000 and dump it. Should come up fairly easily and will be pretty predictable.

Last bit of my advice is to take your time and learn.. don't rush things and don't ride out of your comfort range

almost every bike will wheelie, just like every basketball will go through the hoop. it just takes practice to make it consistent, there is no magic formula

looking for a trackbike!!








I kinda want to get a 50 but how similar is it to a 600 as far as the balance point goes? I have no problem clutching it up and getting the wheel up, i guess im just afraid of totalling my bike....

Does the balance point come and go as fast as it does on a 50 or other dirtbike?

it comes to bp faster. here is the thing. everything has its own bp. and everyone has their own bp. a 120 pound rider on a gsxr600 will have a different bp from say a 220 pound rider on the same bike. the reason you get a 50 is so when you loop. notice i said WHEN not if. so when you loop you will be in first gear and just hop off the back and run behind the 50. try that on the 600 in your 2nd gear power wheelie doing 70+mph where as on the 50 you will be maybe doing 10mph in first gear tops then once you get your body trained to hit the back brake instead of jumping off then you will start to progress with it. i say your ready for the big bike once you have circles on a 50 because by the time you are doing circles on a 50 you hitting the back brake is natural and you dont even have to think about it. so take my advice or not if your determined you will get it. butwithout back brake you will loop. and you will do it alot cause its way easier to learn back brake on a 50. ive bein stunt riding since december 08. you wanna know how i got to where i am so fast? i got a 50. but like i said take my advice or not your choice

Was that really necessary?
The reason i asked it in here was to get the advice of people that are not use to it. The description of the balance point from someone who has been there several hundred times is going to be different than someones that has only been there a few times.

All I wanted to know was if the bike is really twitchy and sensitive when coming to the balance point or if it is predictable.
What was it like the first time you hit it?

my opinion on this getting a 50 expecting to learn brake control and throttle on it to help you on a big bike will no work!

I masterd brake control and throttle control on a 50 moved on to a 636 and got no where didnt help me at all still trying to get high enough to reach BP and slow it down and im also still choppy....

So if your going to get a 50 to stunt and mess around get it.. but if you want to move on to a big bike like in 3 or 4 months then just buy a big bike slap a cage on and hit the lot.. Or atleast like a crf150 or bigger that will feel like a big bike i think...

You will be alot better in those 3-4 months practicing on a big bike or that bigger dirt bike than waistng that time on the 50..

Just my opinion...
