First to second is easier because you have enough power to keep it up even though your not at the BP. Get that front up to where you almost feeel as if your gonna loop it. If your in that area then the other shifts will be no problem. A BP test is to pull the clutch all the way in while in a wheelie. If you come right to the ground you're not there. If you coast a litte with the tire in the air, then you're there or pretty damn close. Do this at your own risk!!!!!!! Yes you can loop it. I did!!!

Thanks for the quote [:I], Zoolander is a great movie (more of a guy movie though, the wife doesn't appreciate it when I watch it.)
BP, what is that, the Break Point? To achieve that height on a wheelie, I would also have to become an expert with the rear brake to prevent the occasional loop. Have you mastered the rear brake or do you just rely on releasing the throttle to prevent the big loop?
When you reach the BP the bike will feel like your just hanging there, trust me you will know it. In order to shift, bring the bike up in second, and just before your about to run out of revs load the shifter w/ your foot then drop the throttle just enough for it to slip in the gear. Then get back on the throttle. The best thing to do is practice clutchless shifting while both tires are on the ground, that way when you are in a wheelie itll be as smooth as can be. Remember ALWAYS COVER THE BRAKE. And don't try this till you are comfortable w/ one tire in the air.
