Hi guys, after having my 08 zx6r for over 6 months now I am now addicted to wheelies. But i'm wondering if you guys do them while being on the passenger pegs. I can do 2nd gear clutch up wheelies. I keep em for a good 5-10 secs but haven't reached bp yet. I keep em up till i run outta rpm. I am wondering if it's easier to learn bp while sitting down or standing up.
Don't flame me for doing wheelies, i've been riding for over 4 years and i just grew some balls this year to try em. Thanks
*ill post a video soon, so ill see how high i go*

thanks*

Learn BP standing up, plus you can see better anyways, then move back to sitdowns. Have you started trying stand-ups yet? And Video always help but nothing is more important than seat time.

i think the stagered position is by far my favorite, left foot on the passenger peg and right foot covering the brake.

Agreed. Staggered is the way to go. It's a bit awkward at first, but when you get used to it, it's the best way to "feel out" the wheelie and adjust your body position if necessary...

He is clutching them up, just not balancing out.

Power wheelie would be just blippin the gas at ~10k then pinning it to come up just under power. Not very precise or controlled that way at all!

I wish that I had a fiddy and some time. I've gotten a little bit of seat time on my buddy's quad. That's nice to learn shit on, but mostly I've had to learn on my bike, which can be a very steep learning curve...

just make sure you are covering the brake and learn to use it not just hammer it. try the staggered position with your left foot on the passenger peg and right foot covering the brake. also SLOW DOWN!!!!!!!! you need to learn first gear if you are serious about learning wheelies. try first gear at about 10-15mph and clutch it up. you will end up smashing your brand new bike.
