can anybody give me some wheelie advice? i've only had my 02 for about a month now, and completely understand how much risk is involved. however, i would eventually like to learn in the safest way possible.
Not an expert myself but I would first get used to the front wheel going light. First gear and crack her open gently so that the front wheel lifts say 6-8 inches off the ground. Get used to this feeling (of the front rising) before doing the same but then try to 'carry' the wheel wheel a touch longer.
Once you are used to this and can carry the front say 20 metres you could try flicking the clutch from low speed to pop the front....(but be mega careful with your throttle).
This is the general way of learning wheelies but as i havent even taken delivery of my 636 yet I cant give you any specifics! (see previous post of mine).
(I just got rid of an RSV Mille which would lift the front on the power in 2nd).
