I was talking about not being able to wheelie the pitbike in second not the z1000.


WHaT!? My 110 stock will power it up in second. You are doing something wrong.

You can clutch it up in second: stab the rear brake right before you clutch.



Genius!!

I've found the first gear can be a bit erratic. I never have really liked second as it seems a bit uncontrollable. I am still trying to learn what/how buttons to press but I really like 3rd and fifth gear!!! I also need to learn body position as I feel better by up front and like I'm falling off when I get further back on the seat

Deff gonna try that trick next time I get out ! :thumbup: :bowdown:

awhh I was hoping someone would play with me :(

Here is what I found personally beneficial. I started by only using first gear, until I mastered bp, I never once tried any other gear, after all why waste your time and decrease the learning curve by chaning variables; do you want to learn control or just how to lift the front tire... The theory(roughly) that I was told; if you can maintain a speed of almost not moving, just minimal speed, using small amounts of throttle, and almost no rear brake, you will have any other gear on lock. I learned on a 140ssr after a year of being unable to find bp on my stunt bike.

I also learned by using the worst habit to get into/out of.. IF you want to learn fast, try fag drag first gear sit downs in a straight line. Use your right foot for break control and your other foot down.. I will warn you however it can be tricky to cut the habit..



It sounds like the lames-est advice ever but something I personally found extremely difficult.. Just breathe and relax

My first time looping it helped a lot. Really helped seeing how far it's gotta go before it flips.

Finally got out of the habit of kicking my feet off the pegs whenever I got up to balance point!!! Yesterday I rode a few wheelies with no throttle after hitting bp, just rear brake to keep me from looping. Was soooo much fun!

It sounds stupid, but one trick I found was to try to look at my front tire and see how high I can make it go. The higher up it went, the easier it was to hit bp and ride out.

It made a big difference to bend my rear brake lever so I could hit it easier with my foot.



Ill see if I can get some videos for you guys.

Watch videos of retarded nerds rocking better wheelies than you.

If that doesn't fix you, try suicide.

That's what all the boys say.

Seriously though, it really is just seat time and overcoming that "throw your legs out" self preservation instinct. It's a major conscious effort. I can turn that part of my brain off on the fiddy, still working in doing it on the grom.

Sit on your bike and have a couple buddies hoist the front to BP and hold it there. Then have them bring it just past BP and remember the feel at both positions. It'll get you acclimated to the feel, so you know how far you can go before you have to stab it. Practice below BP wheelies and consciously setting the front down with the brake too.

I know how to save it with the rear brake now. I can ride em from one end of the block to the other end in 2nd at BP.


I just got my gopro in the mail yesterday, Ill throw up some videos tonight if I get a chance.









Ty's grom was a pain to wheelie btw. Had to just about redline it in first from a stop and yank. Stoppies were a different story.

Groovy man congrats!

Yeah, I've found the same thing. Smashed the tail on mine the other day trying to get the feel again.

Thats a nice way of saying "I looped it" :kicknuts:







I wanna start doing more on the big bike, just am worried about looping it and ending up in the hospital. I can ride them to red line on the Z, but no where near BP.
