just go like 20 or so and start giving more gas as you give more front brake and can even give a slight jerk on the front brake to take weight off of back tire to get it started but once you get it going just use enough front brake to keep the bike att he speed you want it and you can steer them and make them slide sideways, pretty fun
I did a rollin one today. It was to easy on my R1. Thing is once it broke loose and started to roll I think I let the brake out a tad bit to much and she started fish tailing side to side. I didn't loose her though any tips?
okay you got lucky dude.. dont EVER do that.. I had my feet over the windsheild and was sitting on the tank and was spinning the back tire and hit a wet patch bcz of trees and it slipped out from under me.. didn't feel nice.. trust me.
Steer into it, kinda like a controled slide. Keep the RPM's down, but enough to keep it spinning. I personally use the clutch to get it going.....But I think it works eitehr way.....Deffinately a great way to kill a back tire or two getting it down good. I usually wait till I am ready to replace mine and then spend a few weeks working on this trick. The Guys on the videos make it look easy, but getting control of it is the KEY!!
From the Video's you are doing pretty good, I never start from a stand still, I slow to 5mph or so, and tap the front break and ease the clutch out and give it some gas to get her spinning and don't speed up much from there..... I usually do some circles try to learn the control part of it......Keeping the rear wheel spinning at a constant speed seems to help alot, and slow. I have tried it fast and its like riding with the back tire on ICE. I always stand up and lean over the front wheel.....But I also prefer stand-up wheelies....More control for taking curves and changing lanes.......Its just what you are comfortable with....... Nice Video!!
update:today was a rly lucky day i was trainning the rolling burnout again with a empty tank its posible to do the burnouts ofcourse but u need to put a bit more waight to the front or the bike becomes unstable SOOO tryed to make the burnout and the front sliped rly hard to the left sidely i was able to let go the front brake and the tire got the grip again so it sliped to the right i hited the mirror with my helm and then the front tire touched the "bordstone" so it stabalazed the bike and i crusched a bit my balls damn that was kinda hard to drive home with the pain...so u all stunners be carefull with this better PUSH THE BRAKES MORE and more WAIGHT to the front...coz crashing a bike withought a cage aint funny...btw i have holidays so im thinking to make me a crash cage and the 12oclock thingy...just need to find who could do that or maby anyone sells something?
..and no helmet, boots, leathers..blah blah blah...:nopity:
you dont have to go fast at all, in fact you can start at a dead stop if u cruise along at 10 mph, then slowly squeeze front brake so it dips like said before so all weight shifts, then slip clutch out...and pray..lol
How many people have been clutching up their 02 03 forever and have not had damage - and how many have? I don't clutch em - I blew up four crap kwak motors doing that so I just bounce it these days - But I was just curious how tough the 02 03 area on the basket / rods side.
2012 r1 2nd gear (don't even talk about 3rd) clutch doesn't catch trying a wheelie, the more throttle i give the more it wont catch on...on a track everything seems perfect when you not doing wheelies :) anyone know something?
only 1st gear pop up like no issues...on 2nd you can do...
This is my first post here on the R1 forum so hello to everyone. I just purchased my 6th R1 (02', 04', 05', 07', 08', 17') and I'm super excited to continue the break-in process (I know everyone has different opinions on this)... I still have my 07 R1 and have always been able to get it up on...

Was wondering if anyone had any idea or already had installed impaktech race rails on their 09-14 R1. What I’m having issues figuring out is what the best way is to drill the hole through the fairings to get it lined up with the engine bolt since you can’t see through the fairings and there...
