Get a bike, learn the in and outs of how it responds to EVERYTHING, and THEN, worry about doing stunts.

ok well i know how to ride but w/e
What kind of experience do you have to say you know how to ride? I`m sure everyone on this site knows how to ride a bicycle, but I`m also sure alot of them can ride a wheelie on one, or do a stoppie on one. Just because you have rode a bike before, doesn`t mean you know how to ride it correctly, or to its limits. Stunts aren`t something for amateurs to try, they can go very wrong, very quick.

Send a PM to duessel, he has an F4 and can pull it up in third, so I know it can be done. :thumb:

up in 3rd!!!

ok i got second now, and i must say that it is possible to get 3rd up, but the only catch is that it has to be a stand up, and u have to bounce the crap out of it to get it up.
Another quick question is for all those who cluth wheelies in 2nd....does it ever stop going up? i feel like i go right pass the b/p, and when i let off the throttle to feather, it has no power left.
get back to me if you can asap, because its a nice day today and its suspose to rain for the rest of this week(so i might have to find out for myself)lol

Feathering aka throttle chopping is a good way to end up in the hospital. :eek: Trust me I know. Work on being smooth with that throttle. Without seeing you do wheelies it's hard for me to help you out, but it sounds to me like you're either going too fast when you pop it up or you're not getting high enough. When I bring up my R6 in second I'm going roughly 60-65 like 1/2-3/4 through the rpms, if you're not bouncing when you clutch start doing that and it will help you get it up in the lower rpms. If I bring one up at a speed I'm not happy with I just stay smooth on the throttle let it come slightly back past the balance point and you'll feel it start slowing down, just remember to be ready to hit that rear brake. You're probably hitting the very edge of the bp and stopping, but trust me it's alot further up there than most people think. Good luck :D
