Out Practicing Wheelies

Recommended Posts

Decided to go and practice some wheelies today. This was all 2nd gear with no clutch. Just power.

I did same thing a while ago. Glad to see you are at least doing it safely out of traffic.

I bet you were nervous as hell.
Best wheelie video I have seen so far. Very good angle for the camera, and great editing.

Question from a long time rider and wuss. Can you give some numbers about ideal conditions for the power wheelie on our bike? RPM and MPH for example? I rip on my bike but I've never had the front end consider going up on me. I'd like to give it a shot, and having some expectations would make it easier.

I was very nervous. Some came up too quick so I put em down fast.
 
For these wheelies I was in 2nd gear.
 
1. I would get up to 6k rpm (about 30 mph)
 
2. Let off the throttle so the bike engine brakes hard.
 
3. Within a second of letting off throttle..... punch it.
 
For the longer wheelies in the video, they started at 30 mph and by the time I was done chasing I was doing about 60 mph.
 
You do want a lot of space while trying this.
