JBaz btw, I didnt do a wheelie at 105mph, My bike doesnt have enough power to do it. I can only do wheelies in 1st gear and almost in 2nd if I compress the front shocks. I did the wheelie when I entered the highway.

Also if you read my post, the gear slipped so no way I could have gased it when I was comin down.

For the feathering the clutch. I mean if you rev it high and release the clutch slowly, Its engaged, but not fully, you'd wear the clutch out more since its not fully engaged. Although these clutches won't just die if you do it, but over time, they'll wear down faster then if you didn't do it.

Hahaha nice I'll have to look for it.

RoadStainR6 Little insight that will save big jim and the twins on your "wheelies". accelerate as you come down. this lessons the dropping force thus saving your testiclites. Also... 105, on 1 wheel, in traffic, around police... not a good idea. Good luck keeping your license.

Also, the comment about "feathering" the clutch hurting it... sorry, but when done properly, it will not hurt anything. you also will have about 0 luck trying to feather a wheelie up.

JBaz I busted my ass today. Got around 75 degrees and bam, my transmission messes up and slips out of 1st gear into neutral. Came back down hard.

zpyro i did my first wheelie today too. probably went up to maybe 10 o clock, if that. not that much, but still enough to be fun/scary at the same time. i didnt ride it very long, maybe 2-3 seconds, but it was still fun. im tryin to find the sweet spot in rpm and speed @ which to pop the clutch, but only when i'm bored and there's nobody around to see i've done a little bit of a stoppie too, maybe half a foot off the ground

Unas_the_Slayer Wheelies are fun. If a hot chick every motions for you to do a wheelie, just make a flashing motion and see if she shows you her tits. Also, they can be used in exchange for directions. I was at a gas station filling up and trying to find a dealer out in west Jersey and the guy is like ok but do a wheelie out of the station.

My bike is crunchy as hell and I laugh about it. I was prepared for damages to happen if I played around on it.

Probably shouldn't. I just had an itch that I needed to scratch.
