Startin wheelies..but ONLY slow?!?!?

so a few weeks ago i posted about the way to wheelie or whatever...ya

but my problem is....you guys have said to start with power wheelies to BEGIN....well i couldnt even do that so all i have started with and done is clutch ups...you guys said to try it in 2nd to START.....well i couldnt get that either...so i've been doing them in 1st..... you guys said that faster wheelies are easier and better for the starter....well i cant do that and have only been clutchin up sort of slow so the front wheel actual comes up....

WHAT THE HELL IS UP WITH THAT!!! haha

whats going on?

and to give you all an update....i've been clutchin and getting it up in first....and still being kind of hard on the gas...and i can ride 'em for a 5 or 10 feet or so... all my friends are saying im getting only like 2 ft off the ground...which is probably true...so im gunna try doin it and getting higher and higher each time...

but how can i keep riding it out....and its only in first gear.... easier to flip/mess up...ya i know..but thats the way im learning!!

Any help?

Jeez 44, a whole 3 months of newbie experience on your bright, shiny F4i and your concerned with working on your wheelie technique? You're really cruisin' for a bruisin'!

Man, be careful out there. I mean that sincerely.

Sorry, I forgot; you've been riding for 3 whole months without incident. My apologies. You're a seasoned rider who knows exactly what he's doing and how to react in emergency situations when travelling at such speeds.

Sorry to break it to you buddy but you are without a doubt the absolute definition of a

Seriously though, be careful out there, no need to be the reason someones son,daughter,husband or wife didn't come home. All because some f'ing sportbike rider sliced through their car going 160 on the interstate....


Oh and simple physics, if a car decides to pull out 20 feet in front of you while you're doing 160mph, how many feet will it take you to stop? With a PROFESSIONAL rider on that bike you're looking at just over 105ft from 60 - 0 ....how many more for 160mph with a newb I wonder.... ?

God no wonder people hate us...

one wheel

do a power wheelie first dude
what you are doing wrong - I bet

1. you are leaning forwad
2. not opening the throttle all the way
3. being a puss

First step get some protection - cage

NEXT open the throttle to full quarter throttle

================================
I had this issue too

like I felt I was twisting all the way, but then I angled my wrist so I can twist it full throttle.

AND BOOM - - - the front is moving

Remember - - - think ''rear brake, rear brake, rear brake"

- - RIDE SAFE, RIDE STRONG - -
