Does anybody with a similar bike do/tried getting it up in 3rd gear. . i just got into freeway wheelies and it sucks everytime i go to pop it up i have to slow down to 55mph or else it dont come up like i want it to. . and plus i hear the BP is lower in 3rd than it is in 2nd. .

bp is the same in 3rd, the only reason people think it is lower is because you can chase the front wheel a little more in 3rd.

my 05 will bounce right up in 3rd but im not sure about your bike. if you can bounce it up in 2nd and not in 3rd try using the clutch+ bounce.

also be carefull because in third there is alot less engine breaking and it is easier to loop.

Yea i can bounce 2nd but ive gotten used to clutchin it up and plus i use the stagger stance so its a lil bit more difficult to bounce and then switch to the back peg (at least for me) but i guess i just need practice . .

how much are you geared?...geared could mean you have a 41 tooth or 72 in the back...it should clutch up at 8000 depending on how geared the bike is
