So I hate the stock dunlops on the R1, so I learned rolling burnouts last night....first gear tho... get up to about 30 mph and two finger the clutch and two finger the front brake...give it some throttle and some front brake and let out some clucth....it will get to a point where the tire will just break loose...its actually really smooth... sorry just psyched that I learned these...
Oh yeah...stand upon the pegs and learn over the front to unweight the rear....that is kinda key too!!
Ahhaaa...something else I wanna dive into. My front tire is a little flat looking (wheelie landings I suppose) but my back tire still looks good. So I wanna learn rolling burnouts to kinda even it out, so I can replace both of them at once. Better learn some straight ones before I start asking about circles huh. I need to find an empty parking lot in the middle of nowhere.
I sat down to write a how too but remembered seeing a fellow stunter I know at another site who wrote this:
Originally posted by motoxpete alright man first thing is you don't want to get the tire spinning that fast cause if you do it will be harder to keep it going strait.....or to do a donut for that matter.once you get it spinning keep it at a low rpm,beleave me it's much harder to control when it's spinning fast.Also put alot of weight on the front end....another thing, I find it easier to do this when I am slowing down...it helps put more weight on the front tire.just get going like 5 mph then grap the front brake alittle,you'll feel the front end dive alittle....at this time you should already over the front of the bike....don't dump the clutch.....just let is slip out.
lets go over it
1.Get going a little
2.Stand up and weight the front end.
3.start to pull in the front brake.
4.when the front supension starts to compress,give it gas and slip the clutch.
5.keep the tire spinning at a low rpm....like I said if it's spinning fast it will be harder to control.
another thing that helped me was....I would do a regular burnout with my feel on the ground,then I would let off the brake a bit and get a feel on how it will roll.Then throw you feet on the pegs...before you know it you'll be dunkin donuts all day!!
It's hard to explain in words but I hope I helped a little.Good luck let me know how you turn out

I have to give HUGE ups to Aaron Yates. I have a new found respect for the guy because at MidAmerica Raceway in Elkhart, Wisconsin last weekend, I saw him eating dinner Sunday night with his wife & kid. He was still signing autographs with his kid on his lap & trying to carry a conversation with his wife.
I can see where that would get old realllllly fast! Most riders would have said to come back later.
whats up everyone! so your getting the rolling burnouts down, sounds good , ive been doing them for a while now just becare full of slipping the clutch to much where it will grab traction and lock the front tire and wash you out, its happened to me a few times but im usaully starting them at like 60 65 mph and accelerating to 80! they get hairy around that speed but the funnest thing to do on a R1! that is besides spinnin donuts and figure 8s hahaahhaaaa keep up the good work and take them slow!
