I finally got it up today but it just wants to fall back down. It will spring up nice and stiff like it should but then it just goes limp and falls back down. I got it up about 5 times today with it only to fall back down a few seconds later. I'm unimpressed by my own performance. Any suggestions on how to keep it up?

Heh, yea I thought it might give a few people a cheap laugh. But seriously how can I keep the front end of my bike from droppin once I get it up? I dont seem to have enough time to give it carefully give it more gas without flipping it. Im holding it at around 11.5K RPM when I let the clutch out and Ive gotten it to come up almost to the BP but it just goes limp and drops back. Any suggestions? I know their are tons of posts out there, but I gave you all a cheap laugh:twofinger

Thanks,
Sepias

try to clutch it up at a lower rpm. there's no need for you to be that high in the rev level. That leaves you with more rpm to get to bp. If you're not chasing it to bp, then you're letting it down on your own. WHich means you're still scared. Cover the rear brake and keep practicing. You'll find what works for you with time. Nobody can tell you exactly how to do it. Just what works for them. And what works for them might not work for you. So, gear up, practice and be safe. Most of all... have fun.

Yeah youre bringing it up with the revs to high, if youre not letting of the gas, then youre hitting rev limiter and losing power, and never reaching bp. What gear are you in? I think you might be taking to long on the clutch/throttle blip too, it should be about a half second from roll off/clutch/roll on, all basically at the same time, this way you use momentum to yourr advantage, which lets you pop it up quicker with less rpm. Its all technique man, just keep at it. I recomend practicing popping up quick to bp(or whatever is comfortable, youll get better as you go) over and over, once you get that, riding them out is cake. Start small and just work at it, at your own comfort level. Dont forget that back brake!!
