Hi everyone,
This is the first time I have posted in the stunter's forum but I have a question. I have a 2002 Yamaha FZ1 with a Muzzy pipe and Ivan's jet kit. I have the forks lowered in the triple tree about 1/2" and I can wheelie the bike in first gear very easily but I have a hard time bouncing or clutching it up in second gear. Do you think that because the forks are lowered that it its making it much harder to wheelie?

Thanks

Nope. It's all technique. Although on a liter bike it takes a lot less technique.

Just twist the throttle and have at it.

:iamwithst yeah, I dont think that 1/2 would change the wheelbase enough to make any significant difference. Maybe chop off the throttle more before hitting it.:hellobye
