I'm guessing I'm the only one who will answer your question on this one. haha. I am the super . I started out on back roads. Just tryin to gun it up. Knew how to do them on dirtbikes and whatnot so I just went out and started. Started in 1st gear. Until I got used to it commin up. Then started in second. Then learned standups. Once I got standups in second, I started learning them in 1st. Then just kept starting at a slower and slower speed. This right here is the reason that clutching up a wheelie is better than powering. I can pull a wheelie up from a complete stand still and roll it out. Which is important when doing parking lot stuff. I suggest finding a nice large parking lot.. like real big. Or a really big empty back road. Lower the pressure in your tire a bit. Like 25 psi tops. gear up, and check out the little "how to" write up I did. If I remember correctly I went through a the basic wheelie and all that. If you have any questions don't hessitate to ask. Good luck and enjoy!

P.S. If you really want to get into lot stunting, or stunting in general. I suggest a cage. Definately! If you're interested, let me know... I'll get you some info.

great choice!! You'll like it. Make sure to keep an eye on the bolts in the engine mounts. The have a tendency to vibrate loose. And if they aren't tight they bend the bolt or the mount. Also, keep an eye on the bar that goes through under the oil filter. After a few hard bangs it tends to bend a bit, and can sometimes snap off the oil filter. All in all though it's a great cage! Enjoy and be safe!

My experience is similar to roadstains. I just started practicing basic wheelies, stoppies, burnouts and progressed with practice. If you go crazy with gears before you have the basics down it might make it harder, cause the bike is twitchier and you need more throttle control. Find a legit spot, were youre gear and take it one step at a time, you will not get it down over night no matter what you do to youre bike so just take it slow and be happy with the progress you are making.
