Toba-
The sweet spot on the 02 is way in the f**k up there. It's gotta be 11:15 to 11:30 or higher. I'm not good enough to get her up there on a regular basis yet! Makes me nervous as hell! But hey man, if your not nervous your not pushing yourself right?

Damn, it is way up there!!! I will never learn how to wheelie then. I guess I need to get a new watch because mine only goes to 2:00.

2:00 WHEELIES

If you go 2:00 O'clock on a wheelie, the first person you need to call is your insurance agent...lol

12;00 will have you dragging the tail section on the ground...lol

2:00 will have you wadding your bike.

I wanna be able to do a 12:00, but um....I......er........suck

WHEELIES

I do OK wheelies. I am no Patric and never will be. I keep trying to do MY best and I am happy with that. I get pissed sometimes cause I cannot do something someone else can, but then I am sure I can do things they cannot as well.

I did something cool the other night. I actually managed to slow down a wheelie. I was doing a wheelie and I had it balanced, but I was doing 100mph on my speedo. I was thinking man I sure wish I could slow this down a bit. So I get into the gas a bit and get it back past the balance point, and then let off a bit to bring it back to balance. I looked down and I was doing 97mph. I was freaking happy. I know it's only 3 mph but to me It was a big deal.

I went to the drag strip that same night, and they let me wheelie down the 1/4. I picked it up at the line and when I went through the traps I was only going 77mph. I was happy, thats my slowest wheelie through the 1/4 so far.

I wish I had a way to post some video clips on this site. I have some cool clips of us out screwing off. I was out trying to see what a 12 o'clock would be like, I was clutching it up in 1st at 17mph, and man those were the most wobbly wheelies of my life. It looks funny on camera...lol

If anyone wants to come up for the Show saturday, you can crash at my house saturday night before you head back. Make it a little cheaper on ya. It will be fun. It's only $10 to get into the gate, and the stunt show is FREE to enter. Just E-mail me at JAYSTENSEC4CYL@AOL.COM , OR call my cell at 405-412-6472. Have fun guys

Wheelie Tip

I have a stupid tip coming from joe novice himself. I have found that getting the front of my R1 up is whole lot easier on an near empty tank of gas. This would help anyone trying to learn wheelies for the first time. Never heard anyone mention this yet, am I full of s@#t or not????

Hey guys, I've never really tried a stand-up wheelie as I'm still not all that consistent with 2nd gear seated wheelies but if you could help I'd appreciate it.

1). What sort of position do you get into before you clutch it? Position of the feet would be helpful too? Balls/Center of the feet?

2). You do clutch it in second right? If so, is it easier to pull it up standing than seated? Trying to figure out how much RPM I need.

3). Do you need to modulate the throttle to keep her going or is it easier to just hold it now that she's up.

I just need the "complete idiot's guide to stand up wheelies". If someone could provide it, that would awesome

Stand-up Wheelies

Now that I can do stand-up wheelies, theres no going back. The first day I tried them I thought they were a lot harder than seated wheelies. But now stand-ups rule. Learning them in first gear is easier I believe. I still have not mastered the second gear wheelie thing.

2nd gear -------- bounce!

as you compress the front end, pull up while rolling the throttle

Cool thanks man. What about body position? How far do you have to be leaned back while doing this?

I can not seem to manager the foot\toe on the rear brake. So what happens is I pick up more and more speed topping out at about 120mph in second gear. I have the MIG high mount exhaust could this be the problem? Maybe I just plain scared to tap the brake at all. I'm gonna keep trying.

r1dude98
Yeah, stand ups are much easier and you have so much more visibility standing up. Good luck.

1). What sort of position do you get into before you clutch it? Position of the feet would be helpful too? Balls/Center of the feet?
I use the balls of my feet kinda like your up on your toes sorta.

2). You do clutch it in second right? If so, is it easier to pull it up standing than seated? Trying to figure out how much RPM I need.
If your going between 55 and 65mph (say about 4th gear) drop down to second gear and you will not have to use the clutch at all. Compress the front end(push down then pull up) while rolling the gas and it should come right up for you. Remember to keep your rpm's at about 6.5 to 7.

3). Do you need to modulate the throttle to keep her going or is it easier to just hold it now that she's up.
Yeah, unfortunately I have been feathering the gas, but I'm trying to ween myself from doing that. As I said earlier it only make me go faster and now I want more control.
Good Luck

Cool thanks bro. I need to dedicate a day to practicing riding her out (hopefully I'll still have a clutch left to change gears with... I think she's on her way out - 10k miles)

If those three pics included in your signature are indicative of your average wheelie, I can see why you can't keep them. Those look like you've hit a speed bump going through a parking lot, not your balance point.

Ha ha very funny mother ****er!! (Sorry to get a little Samuel Jackson on ya, it was the 1st voice that popped into my head when I read your post)

Gee thanks, now I gotta go out and get new pics of my progress. Guess I needed to anyway. Those pics aren't really a reflection of what I can do now.

So where are your pics Mr. Wheelie man?

Lol, no problem at all.. Sorry I can't comply with the photo request as I'm much too busy shooting my friends while they practice their stand-ups. I've been looking for a photographer to turn the camera on me though.

If you look close, you'll notice your bike would fit under his front tire.
