U WILL FEEL LIKE UR GONNA FLIP OVA WHEN U REALLY ONLY 6INCHES OFF DA GROUND.WITH DA CAMERA ULL B ABLE TO GAUGE UR HEIGHT WITH HOW HIGH U FEEL.THEN ULL GET A BETTER PERSPECTIVE OF WHERE U AT IN THE STOPPIE. PLUS ITS A SERIOUS CONFIDENCE BUILDER TO SEE URSELF ON FILM DOIN SOME S#@T.

another thing to do , as almost all the basics are coverd is well at first take off your mirrors, man I went through plenty lol, and get out a camera, or camcorder, as at first an inch feels like a mile don't look at the film till the end of the day it might hurt the process if you look too soon, also get a mouthy cocky friend to abuse you and keep you trying, " oh that was sh1tty, man my grand mom...." you know the type, also if you know anyone who can help you pay/ask them for advice. watch out for painted lines that are reflective as they have glass inthem and are slippery, try to focus on a start point, ie a spare tire or spray painted line ht it there and see how far you get, speed is good but stay where you are comfortable, you can always start the coasting at the same speed and pull the break when you are read, 80-70-60-40-whatever.

R1 vs. 900RR (endos)

blutofu said:
does anyone know if its easier to do stoppies and rolling stoppies on a cbr 900rr than a r1?
THe R1 is smoother, especially with steel brake lines and upgraded pads. The RR however is a damn good bike to endo, for those unforunate,slower, honda owners out there .

THIS is how i stoppie... just ride around until you find some dumb B**ch and just ride behind her/him and wait for her/him to do something totally stupid that requires you to SLAM on your front :scared ... Carry a passenger and charge them for hte ride per-ft off teh seat :jump

You guys seem to have these down to an art. Is there any
way to learn 'em without ever dumping your machine? Or is the
best way just to have another bike devoted purely to stunts?

You don't need a dedicated bike. But you do need a steering damper and If you're gonna do 1000+ endos, you gonna need to replace your steering head bearings often. The only reason I went down is due to no steering damper and when you get one (adjustable), turn it way up. A tank slapper at 30 MPH at 6 O'clock equals 3 months out of work for me (knee rebuild). Did I mention to get a steering damper?:confused:

nobody mentioned the perfect front suspension setup for rolling stoppies?? I see some guys have it soft from the pics and others have it setup fairly stiff (not much bottoming going on) Personally, I prefer the latter setup
anyone else prefer the opposite?

I do not recommend stopping the rear wheel with the brake. If you stop it with the brake then the inertia from the tire is transferred to the brake(bike) and if you are in a nice high position, it could cause you to go over the balance point unintentionaly. If you do an endo for a decent distance the tire should stop anyways. So, there you go.

preload

you want to take off some of the preload from the front to do a stoppie. this allows more weight to be transfered to the front end, hence more traction. when the preload is tight, you are shifting forward, and then, wam, all the sudden you hit the taunt resistance and the suddeness of it increases horizontal force on the tire (not good). when the preload is soft, the weight gradually shifts on and gets firmer, no firm point so to say. just get the preload just enough, but not to much.

if you didnt feel like reading that or to complicated, loosen your preload to do a endo.
