Good to see someone having a lot of fun on their bike and as mentioned, you're trying and you get an "A" for effort but if you want to do the long, effortless wheelies where you're not throttling the hell out of it to keep the front end up you really need to practice slower wheelies in 1st gear to get the feel for bringing your front end up higher to the balancing point and holding it there with the throttle and rear brake. Then you can advance to effortless higher gear/higher speed wheelies. It's just a suggestion. GL, be safe.

It's actually just hte front suspension decompressing. The wheel doesnt even leave the ground!

Thanks for the feed back. I know the rear brake is key to control. I really need to work that out!
