Question Noob wheelie ???

We went out on some private roads practicing wheelies the other day, I was working on stagards on my 600RR. It pops up fine I just cant hold it straight up, it wants to lean to the left. Is it from not distributing the weight the same or what? Ive heard stagards on 1000RRs are extrememly hard due to the weght distribution of the bike, thats just what ive heard. I was wondering if it was the same for a 600. I bounce, clutch it and pull up. second gear


Anyway, how can I get it up and hold it up?



Thanks

I believe you may be going to slow ?


May need to let a little air out, maybe 25psi

I was trying the same on my sons 125 learning rear brake but it kept tryin to fall over.

Try 2nd but maybe not all the way back to balance point just yet, work into it slowly.


What gearing do you have ?

A friend of mine can ride a staggered on my 1kRR for ever, it seems like.

I've seen another dude roll some staggereds for a while as well.

I think it's all about practice, Hooli.

I don't have the .

let a little bit of air out of your back tire to give you more surface area to ride on... the contour of the tire can have the ability to throw you off a little bit...

other than that... it takes time, you won't hit it immediately, it takes practice

Do you have the wheelies down in 1st gear? Thats all I have been doing is trying to get a handle on 1st gear wheelies on stock gearing.

I would never recommend 1st gear wheelie

too twitchy and not controlable... the lenth of the gear isn't long enough and you'll just rev out

I can do power wheelies on my 600rr like butter, but I can't get the clutch wheelies very smooth. I do agree with u Hooligan mine drifts tothe left a little bit aswell.

I ride all my standups staggared, on the 6 and the 1k... you got to balance your weight between the left rear peg and the front right... sometimes it helps to put both of your knee's into the tank

I ride an 06 636 and usually what i do is slide the clutch in 2nd and step back with my right foot on the passenger rearset and place almost all of my weight on it. then once you gain momentum and get the hang of it you can step back with the other leg

keep in mind that you might not want to take your foot off the rear brake if you arent comfortable with the rolling wheelie yeat. you will go over.
