You in the yellow?

Were you in 2nd gear?

I am still breaking in my motor, but how high do I need to have the RPM's in 2nd to put it up?

I feel like I am on the brink of finding the sweet spot in first, but would like to have more range to play with.

You can be as low as 30mph and pull it up in 2nd gear.. but it will be HARD on your gearbox (2nd gear) and you'll have to change much faster than if you would powerwheelie it in second (with bounce and on/off method).

I clutched it up in 1st because I wanted to go as slow as possible to start with.

I can now wheelie from 1st gear to 6th gear without going faster than 90mph.
