In the beginning I used to get up on the bike going around 60KM/h and then probably roll on the gas slowly until I got to around 70-80KM/h and then bounced it from there, but I held it at that speed for a little while so the shocks could fully expand and then I pushed down, arms and legs and I gave WOT when I was pushing down.
So at 70KM/h
Push arms and legs down, bending legs and arms and give WOT.
Bike should come up. If it doesn't just keep practicing the bounce until you're sure that you're pushing the bike down! That's the key.
love that wheelie, thanks for the video that helps.. i started to think it was my bike i guess its just me. i was trying them sitting down. looks like it comes up easy and thats without using a clutch. --- i guess ill just have to keep practicing.
No, should be the same thing pretty much.
Just do them at around 70KM/h and BOUNCE.
Legs and hands pushing down as if you're going to jump off and then AS you are pushing down give it gas. Just practice bouncing it.
what gear are you in? i just started to try them on mine(01) and was having the same problem. i finaly relized that after i closed the throttle i waited a little too long to crank her WOT. now im practicing my WOT timing and getting use to that falling feeling.
