So it is possible to wheelie a 93 ninja 6...

So I've been spending a little time in the stunters forums. My stuntlife account is messed up though I cant post I have like to permissions... any insight?

Anyway I've been reading and trying to get my bike up. At first I started just dumping the clutch but I had to go to like 10k to get it to hop at all and it was a little violent for my style.

So anyways I havent been getting anything out of slipping but I figured out I wasn't going from accelerating to slipping fast enough. The tutorial was like you probably wont get it up on the first try blah blah blah.

I tried it with the new insight and nearly shit myslef. The bike stood up so high the tank hit me in the stomach and I couldnt see the road in front of me anymore. wow what a rush.

I thought it was just my old bike 93 zx6 e1. not r1 just slow ass e1.

Before I get to much more into this what kind of bike protection should I look at. I dont even have frame sliders but I'm not sure how much they would help. As for cages do they do anything to protect the plastics or just the engine? I dont have a lot of money to be putting into it if I crash.

Oh an is it legal to stunt in private parking lots or do you have to have the owners permission or something like that. want to aviod the fuzz at all costs

You mean when you crash right?

How about this, don't do something you cant afford to.

I'm not trying to be a dick, but here is the deal.

This isn't the forum to talk about stuff like that. Unless your talking about your dirtbike. (where it is somewhat legal)

And if someone on here gives you suggestions, then you go out and jack your self up and get hurt. The person that said something might actually feel bad.

Know what I mean?

Or you could go out to Royal Oak and talk to those A$$hats that Fox 2 News interviewed.

I'm sure they would be more than willing to help you out!

It seems to me that you did a pretty good job of that. FYI a lot of redline members do wheelies so don't single me out because I was looking for advice.

Oh and legally that's why I am here to find out where it is legal and how to make it safer for the bike.

I am perfectly experienced with crashing and getting hurt. I got highsided off my bike and thrown 8ft down a ditch. Did I sue the construction company because their was gravel on the road... NO!

Wheelies are only legal on your own private property or private property owned by someone else with written permission (i.e. signed off waiver).

Buuuttt.. It seems like your pretty new to this whole sportbike thing, and given you have already crashed (whether there was gravel on the road or not) you should get a couple years under the belt before you risk wadding ass trying to learn wheelies.. Start small.....then go big.. not big, then go splat....

His point is that there are certain things that should not be "Published" on a "messageboard" like "advice" on how best to "perform illegal activities". Not only do you not seem to get it, but you then decide to try and make even more friends by implicating the entire group.

Here's the bottom line, if you can't do a wheelie it's cause it's not time for you to do one

Thanks

As stated above, learn to ride your bike first. The wheelies will come in time and with experience. I've got 20 years on the road and still cant ride for shit with two wheels on the ground let alone one. Start with a dirt bike, a lot easier to learn on and a lot cheaper to repair.
