find a really steep uphill road, sit as far back as possible, simultaneously give a life-altering tug at the bars and wack open the throttle.

(note: sarcasm is being layed on pretty thick)

First, go buy yourself a rat dirt bike and practice on the dirt with no one around. Make it a 125 or 250.

Do this for aleast 6-12 month, riding aleast 3-5 times a week.

Then try it on the street, back alley, no cars, no people.

Then you're ready for the sport bikes and to try this.

Watch out though, I've seen allot of squids eat sh$t big time.

r1otis: my bike has no problem doing wheelies. Of course it was so friggin cold on my club ride the other day that instead of a wheelie i just did a rolling burnout cause the tire wouldnt hook up.

lets see how to wheelie

1) ride in first at about 15 mph
2) pull in clutch
3) go to full trottle
4) dump the clutch
5) call ambulance
6) have some nice scars to show off with

accelerate to second, and then hold the button that makes the rider sit up and ride away safely.

oh wait...that's SBK2001

Wheelies is best understood through first learning the physics involved. So once you have passed physics class let us know, we will be glad to help you learn some tactics that help you demonstrate your comprehension of the laws of physics. What I really wanted to say is I second Jmoney, if you can't understand what makes a bike wheelie, or you just don't know how to do them, don't ask, practice practce practice. Just be sure to cover the rear brake while practicing.

If you wrote a book about your life, would anyone want to read it?

yep i agree with covering rear brake. Don't know about the physics class though. Physics sucks!! i have taken 2 semesters of Engineering physics, and class was crappy labs were fun though.

Second gear wide open from 5k up to about 8k pull clutch in .25 of a second and release while keeping the gas on full.

i started out doing first gear power wheelies, now im up to the second gear wheelies, just prctice but be carefull

since it got removed, kane should repost his how to wheelie thread....boy can throw the front wheel up. i can wheelie but basically just wacking it up in first power wheelie style, this year i'm going to move forward to clutching it in second on an uphill near my house...should be ok i remember everything kane said- i know that's only on thei nternet but i should be alright....summarized i believe it was
accelearte to 5 k, hold throttle wide open pull clutch in till it hits about 7.5 drop push down on bars, then drop clutch while simultaneously pulling up on bars(after pushing down), then sit back and ride forever...the riding forever part is the real trick hehe:)

Yeah, I know physics sucks, you don't need to remind me of that. I was on my way to flunking it till I was forced to withdraw from the class. Long story full of politics and slander but for another time maybe. But I did manage to learn about net forces and opposite and equal reactions and all. Just picture a car. All cars can wheelie like bikes. But most of them don't because they have a huge power to weight deficit and even if they didn't their tires are not offereing enough traction. Thus once you finish burning out in say a Camaro SS, you just start accelerating, very hard. Same goes for a bike except we have a good power to weight ratio, and that small rear contact patch is all we need, provided it is sticky enough or hot enough. The excess power applied is, things get weird here, transfered through the chassis to the front wheel. The front wheel lifts and the rear becomes a fulcrum point, or pivot point. The higher the front wheel gets, the less acceleration forces are applied to the rear. This is why good wheelie riders get to the balance point sooner so that they can ride a longer wheelie. I know this is strange but it is entirely true. I am not good enough to sustain the balance point, but those that have been there and have been there for a while do know the physics involved with why they stay there longer and don't accelerate much. Of course, physics as I was told is not always done in a vacuum. So now wind resistance comes in. I think it is safe to say that once you have achieved 100mph plus on the rear that a lot of wind is also starting to help your cause.

I swear I could have passed that class if only it delt with motorcycles. Who gives a [censored] about the speed of the flow of water and how that determines where the canoe, heading at 4mph, will end up on the other side of the river. Really, who gives a rats [censored]?

If you wrote a book about your life, would anyone want to read it?
