Default Wheelies..

     

I got the 01 XR 50 running again..after cleaning the carb out..

Ok my question is..I try wheeling by putting it in neutral..revving it a little then shifting to 1st while gunning the throttle. It works great but I cannot hold it at all. I pop it up and I dont get very far at all and when I do get it up too high my feet fall off. I did try pulling it up in first gear because I cant get my feet on the pegs quick enough but I cant pull it up and when it does get off the ground it is very low. Any tips would be appreciated.

Thanks guys.. ive gotten a lot better..one thing that I am not happy about is I dont get a chance to get my feet on the pegs..when I have it in neutral rev it and shift up my right foot is not on the peg..so I tried to get going in 1st (so I have a chance to get my feet on the pegs) down shift to neutral rev it and pop it in to 1st...nothing happens! Any ideas?

Ok I have an idea... You could get on your yz125 which is meant for a rider your size, get rollin in second so that your just barely in the powerband, sit back on the seat and gas it, it will come up instantly and a little throttle control is all you need to keep it up there.

I have a hard time teaching people how to wheelie in real life much less over the internet....

But, dont pop gears. Just lean back while gassing it and pull a bit all in one fluid motion. Those 50's are ridiculously easy to wheelie. Then 'cover' the back brake. Always have your foot over it in case you start going to far. Its all about throttle control and balance. No amount of talking about it will make your wheelies last though, just gotta practice. Soon enough you'll be doing circle wheelies and tricks while doing them, haha.

Thanks for the idea guys..oh I know for a fact I could get the front wheel up on my YZ 125 lol...tons of power...but...when you say not to pop gears on a fifty and to just gas it and pull up..I find the 50 does not have enough power at all. Should I try pulling up a little harder?

My friends and I would just shift from 1st to 2nd while pinning it and it comes up and we could ride it for as long as you can keep your balance. We would have contests to see who could stay up the longest. And we did this in the sand. So if we could do it in the sand it should be no problem whatsoever on any other surface. Give a couple of these things a try and see what works best for you.
