hold the front brake.....put your weight on the front......give it some revvs and then let the clutch out quickly......then just burn the dollars away.....if you really want to get fancy you can turn the front wheel from side to side to make it burn on something other than the middle.
hey is it physically easy to do a burnout??? I guess I'm a total newb ( der ), cause how are you supposed to hold the front brake in and roll back on the throttle at the same time, or am I just over thinking it?
grab the brake lever with two fingers and you should be able to pull the throttle enough to burnout. ease off of the brake and you will start the rolling burnout. keep cover the clutch lever after you let it out just in case the back tire deside to grip (u could start to wheelie). Keep the tire spining and turn the handlebars if you want to drift. Like the other guy said "keep your weight towards the front of the bike. You can also do this while you are standing, in other words you don't have to have your feet on the pegs.
if you want to do REAL burnouts this is the best way i have found
get in 1st gear and ride slow (just a few mph you will find out what feels good to you)
stand up on the pegs and lean over the tank
pull in the clutch and bring your RPMs up just a few k
now you have to give the front break a little pop with your middle finger, when you do this it will take weight off the back wheel (dont be scared to get the wheel off the ground an inch or two to start with) as you pop the break drop the clutch, DONT REV THE ENGINE UP just let the clutch out at 4k or 5k. after you pop the break let off and just drag it with your middle finger and work the gas with the rest of your hand.
this works and its MUCH easier than it sounds, also if you keep your RMPs low and make an easy fish tail side to side you wont get a flat spot on your tire.
