Right, which is the point. I want to learn the balance point. Sure the bike may be tougher, but a lot less expensive. I think the feeling is more what I need to get used to - the balanced feeling

I hate to say this but those 4 strokes are easier to learn how to wheely on. Lots of more power down low. It comes on very predictable so you won't be scared of a sudden power burst. I just lean back and try to control the throttle as my front wheel comes up.

Does anyone know if learning to weelie on a bicycle will tansfer over very well? It's a lot less expensive to wheelie over on a bike.
I wouldn't be to sure about that, I can wheelie FOREVER on my bicycle, I know the "balancing point" very well, yet I still can't seem to get to the "balancing point" on my RM too easily.

I agree with that 100%, a four stroke is much easier to learn on, it has a wider range of power to deal with then a 2 stroke, wich translates into and easier wheelie.

Default Re: HOW DO I WHEELIE!ARRH

I'm with spitfire. Since I was a kid, I can wheelie forever on a bmx or mountain bike, but I have yet to master my YZ. I've gone over a couple of times, and now am a big baby about it. I find the easiest way to practice is up a hill. I would love to be able to ride wheelies on my dirt bike, but so far it's been a waste of time. Maybe someone can give me a lesson at Longview MX on March 2???

I know this may seem odd, but i find it easier to wheelie while standing up. I can control the bike a lot better, and it translates a lot better from bmx. When i sit while on one wheel, i feel awkward... out of place. Its more comfortable to stand, since thats what ive been doing for years on a bmx bike.

SirFallsALot is right, I've gotten down the wheelie on a BMX bike, but I cant pick up my 100 front wheel. I guess I will start trying to stand-up wheelie from now on. lol

just move back and load your rear suspension, that open the throttle and pull up. maybe you need to use the clutch but i find i cant keep those going because of the burst of power from the bike

pretty much everything they all just covered, once you get it up pretty far you can find the balancing point. Once you find that, you can master long wheelies.

Standing up and riding a wheelie is easier for the most part, you are able to transfer your weight back farther and be more comfortable while doing so, in addtion you add the factor of more control of the bike as well.

I learned this big time on road bikes, standing up is far easier to control the bike and enable turning or passing of cars while on one wheel, it's almost imposible to do this while sitting down.

I download files from Aries I have got a bunch of moto videos from there. Kind of a Napster type thing, do a google search for it.

The easiest way i find, ESPECIALLY on a two stroke is I ride right before the power band kicks in... I then use the sudden burst of power(from the power band) to lift the front wheel, that way it doesn't hit in the middle of a wheelie.
