great tip, I got the first gear power up down now, and slipping the clutch on first gear. Can some one tell me if I have to slip the clutch for second gear wheelie, or just do another power up, and also how fast should I be going on second? I'm also a newbie at stunts. I have 03 r6

wheelies

im 130lbs, 5'5'' on a 2001 zx7r (i think it does have the power to come up in first).

i do about 7-8 rpm. shut off the throttle, then smash it open, it just speeds up, i feel the pull back, but the bike doesn't come up ?

am i missing something?

Any help will do me good. thanks.

Sounds like you have all of your weight shifted to the front, like that it can't come up. Hard to say without seeing you though, but try to not put too much on your handlebars, you want to balance yourself on your footrests (and don't hang your foot into it, stand on the front part of your foot) and stay easy on the handles without loosing touch.
Some people even "pull" their handlebars a little bit upwards, depending on the bike u ride. The ZX should do it easily.

Flap's right. You are probably leaning forward on the bars. Make sure you keep your upper body loose and come up with the bike, don't let the bike come to you.

One thing that I notice almost every student do is snap the throttle and lean forward. It's instinct to lean forward and duck behind the windscreen in anticipation of a burst of speed. This will work against you EVERY time.

I know who you are, I thought it was kinda convenient that you had responded to this page already so I chimed in with a litle extra experience.

Just helping out on Sundays doesn't really help me too much. I need instructors to be able to make it for at least two days. You're more than welcome to come hang out at the next school though. Get a free lunch and hang out with some fellow riders.

I'm not sure how much practice you've gotten in since posting this, but there are a couple things I'll mention. Slipping the clutch is a bad idea. You're going to wear out your clutch super fast if you're slipping it to get the front wheel up in the air. Also, becuase of clutch wear, you would need to increase the frequency of your oil changes.

Clutching the front wheel up is done by pulling the clutch in and popping it back out almost instantaneously while under light to moderate acceleration. This is more aggressive than your slipping, but it's not going to overheat and wear out your clutch plates as quick.

I'm unsure of why you want to pull it up in second gear when you're doing it in first already. Option one being you want to go faster, and option two being you want to carry it farther. IF you're looking to carry it farther, then don't do it in second. Keep going with the first gear wheelies and bring the front wheel up higher. Bringing the front of the bike higher creates more wind resistance, and puts more of your weight back allowing you to shut of the throttle slightly to keep your speed down.


If you just want to go faster, well, that's what second will give you. The technique for getting it up should be the same for all gears if you're using the clutch, just slightly more aggressive. And COVER THAT REAR BRAKE.

good ol' wheelies.

Good advice. I rode motocross for a few years and trials for another 2-3 and competed regularly. I have had three sportbikes now, gpz750, 97' zx750 and my newly beloved 99' SVS 650 which I am trying to learn the balance points on. Not as simple as a 70kg trials bike where you can land from 4 feet in the air on the rear wheel and ride it out feathering everything but the gearshift lever! For me the main thing is not wanting to spend 600 bucks every crash on average, hense me getting a streetfighter front end and sliders, etc. Anyhow, that 650 has some beautiful torque to push up that front end. Well, ride hard and take er' easy!

Here's a couple shots of an On One Wheel student who went through Level One and then came back for Level Two on HIS SV650. http://garphoto.com/whee/wheelie4.html
