  3. trying to learn 2nd gear wheelies
     
  4. At about 8000 rpm in second just slip the clutch a little bit and it will stand right up be sure to cover your rear brake to save your ass if you need it. Keep practicing and it will come to you took me about 6 months to ride it about a quarter mile.

    Wheelies??

    Shit, no way man....just too dangerous.
     
  8. I always hear " cover your rear brakes" but when i do I'm not as comfortable.

    I really enjoyed learning 1st gear but I am running out of gear. I have been told that mine will power wheelies in second so that's what I have been shooting for. Have also tried the clutch thing but no luck yet. hoping to get some pointers from someone I am riding with tomorrow.

    get your revs up in second and it will power up pretty easy with a little chop & roll on action. you'll be going a bit faster than when u power up in first tho so be extra super duper careful.

    I accidentally did a triple wheelie on my Ninja 500 once. Once everything was all under control again I let out a huge war whoop! What a trip! But I haven't yet mastered how to intentionally wheelie. :tard:
     
  13. Just get used to it. It will get more and natural as you go. On a 600 it will power up but I feel the clutch is more controlable than power ups. Just relax and make sure your weight is not on the bars. Just lighten up on the bars a bit and that tends to help me out. If you want I could help you out on sunday on the way to the oyster run.

    1st gear power wheelies is all I got. I really wish I was better at it though. I need to learn 2nd gear clutch-ups.
