G/L mang!

*Clutch it up in 2nd...Around 45-50 mph...(7-8K RPM Up to about 11K & Release)
Cover the rear break and Progress slowly!

Ride safe......Wear gear.....Dont try to save the Bike if it goes Bad! $.02


BTW i Wrecked my 07 wheeling , and it wasnt fun!

same technique applies, but the R1 finds the bulk of its power at higher RPMs than the DRZ in the video.

I strongly recommend that you:

1) wear full gear

2) select a safe location (straight secluded road, no traffic, no cross traffic)

3) learn in slow methodical increments.
begin by simply trying to get the front end 1 inch of the ground. Repeat that until you can do it every time, then work your way up in slow increments.

4) ALWAYS cover your REAR brake.
Practice using it before you really "need" to, to learn how it effects your altitude.


please be safe.
