Ive been workin more and more on my slow stuff lately.

I clutch up slow wheelys at like 10mph standing with my left foot on the rear peg, but it is so ackward and it is so slow I feel like im gonna fall over sideways.

Does it absolutely need to be at almost 12 oclock, with the use of the rear brake to balance it?

The thing duck walks and I feel like im gonna be face down before i know what to do.

10mph when you come up? what speed when you balance out?

drop your rear tire pressure to 20psi and see if it feels better. then try 10psi.

running 30+ in the rear for slow stuff and the wobbles come on instantly..

10 is too fast I take it? I suppose slower, like crawl speed? I await your DVD adam, and maybe I can learn from that. I will try lower tire pressure.

naw, 10mph is slow as hell for an R1 haha

if you want to do 12's and shit, you need to be going about 5mph or less when you clutch up.. literally crawling, so you'll only be doing 10mph or so when you hit the balancepoint.

our DVD anatomy of a wheelie section really only touches on basic technique.. we don't get into advance stuff like tire pressure and clutching at super slow speed, rear brake control, etc.. because that's not what it was meant to do. i wanted the anatomy to basically be a video version of what i have to post everytime someone asks "how do i do a wheelie?" or "how do i do a stoppie?" ..now they can watch that, see slow motion video of my hands moving on the brake or throttle, and hear me talking about what techniques i started out using, and why.

we're gonna buy a 900RR soon, maybe i'll document the process on it, for 12's etc.
