Soon you will be doing this ;)
Soon you will be doing this ;)
Just ordered my sprocket and cage, i cant wait to see the video of my first fail.
Haha, for sure! Gotta record that - you will appreciate it later!
it's been a year since i last tried this, now that my street triple finally has a new front wheel and forks and bars,plus my ligaments, tendons and cartlidge in my knees are pretty much back to normal. I'm ready to try again hahahaha
LOL! Love the flapping of the arms in the first wheelie clip!
Ya... not my best moment.
Whoaaa!!!! You choose the fast method ;) you OK?
haha some rash and bruises, nothin too bad. i dont have a rear handbrake so the slow method kinda makes me nervous at the ballance point haha
You have a footbrake! Be careful, glad to hear you're ok.
hey stunt bums love the work you guys do , all for the love of the sport , check out my vid of me learning to stunt it is my first go at editing. Some good crash footage to make you laugh lol
You're doing great Paul! Congrats You have heart, that's the most important thing! Keep us updated!
hahahaha yeh love crashes.... only one of mine has put me to the doctors and im anticipating that it wont be the last.... i never got to use a 12 bar... mine was set at 1 or 13 o clock since i first started riding... nice work tho man it aint easy at first but it gets easier the more you ride.... also one helpful little tip i have found especially with circles it try it on a thumpstar or mini bike.... because they dont weigh that much it shows you how much body distribution/ pulling down on the bar has affect to the direction of the bike will go
I need some advice. I got my sprocket on now and im tryin to practice idle wheelies, when I clutch it up i feel like im going to fast forward and it makes me panic and set it down.But I dont wanna give it to much throttle and flip it backwards. Is there a trick of the trade you can help me with or is it more of a "Dont be a bitch" kinda thing?
Are you coming to a dead stop before you pick it up? That helps bring it back to BP, other than that it's just clutching it up faster, so you don't pick up speed and hit BP too late to catch idle.
Well I used your advice today and when I came to a dead stop i was able to bring it up without launching forward too fast. Everything else is just getting used to the BP. At the end of the day I 12'ed it and did almost just like you did in that video accept when it came up I got wiskey throttle and it launched and snapped one of my subframe bolt holes off when the round bar made contact with the black top. Thats the price we pay tho Lol. Videos coming soon!
Nice! Your stops do look solid! Be careful gassing through though - when you give gas after the initial clutch up that's when you get going fast and it can be more dangerous. A little drill to try is to only give the one brap for your clutch up and see if you can pop it up fast enough to catch idle. Give a bit more gas before you pop the clutch and see how high you can get it. Once you can pop it up to BP, you can give little gas inputs just to keep it on idle (or at least at BP).
You're on the right track, I see lots of wheelies in your 2012 ;)
hey man watch the vid and have some advice i think may help you....... one.. position on the bike, now standups from the rider pegs even for me feel dodgy.... try to adopt the staggered riding position when is left foot on left stunt peg (left pillion) and right foot on right rider peg..... now you have 12'd it so you now know how far back the bike can go and when begginning it seems so far back......if you feel like once your in the wheelie the you have a feeling of falling backwards pull your body closer to the bike.... the more upright your body is the less you feel like your going to fall off or fall back.... but hey man more importantly the best advice i can give is to just go out and have fun.... your catching on pretty fast by the looks of it.... everything takes practice and its always a great feeling pulling something off
Thanks, I hit BP the other day and it felt pretty good. Too bad its so cold out or id be pitchin a tent at the lot haha.
Congrats spring will come soon!
Yay!!!! come on spring!!!!! nice progress zachary
Stunting is starting to appeal to me these past couple of months but I have yet to start. Anybody using a '06 600rr? I was wondering what y'all recommend for cage and bar as there's lots of them out there... thanks! Mine is still stock, ez pull clutch on the way, but still on stock gearing.
Also, I understand (correct me if I'm wrong) that the reason for low psi is to get more traction for lifting the front. I only have one bike and its my daily rider/commuter as well, do I really need to drop the psi down?
The low PSI makes it easier to balance the wheelie side to side. Since the pressure is low the bike is less responsive - which helps when you're learning. Don't know much about the 600rr's - but good luck!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IV-_sLY2K78&feature=g-upl Trying to do wheelie, catch idle. Tried staggered/fis/fib but same shit No success Too scared to pull more throttle.. Any sugestions if i do it ok or wrong? what should i do better or concentrate on?
I'd stick with staggered - less chance of breaking off your foot in the seat. You look pretty solid, I might just go for a park and get over the fear
You can do it!
Thanks. You broke smth while learning? So its better to learn first to park and then trying balance with the foot brake? Well next time i should try to park!
I love that you post your progress. I'm learning as well and picking up some things that a few of you have gone over. Curious, staggered vs both feet on back pegs...which is the easist to 12 o'clock? I feel less afraid of staggered, but when on both back pegs I get better results. I still haven't quite gotten a grasp on balance point yet, although I'm working my ass off to get there.
I've watched this video too many times by now. Haha.. Even with my friends coaching me I was still having trouble bringing it up high consistantly. The yesterday I tried using your method. I got much better results, holy crap! I'll keep practicing this way. I just wanted to say thanks for posting this. I like seeing other girls out there stunting too, it gives me something to aspire to.
Thanks Stick with it - you will get it!
Leah, did you learn idle wheelies before you learned fast wheelies?
I've gotten 2nd and 3rd gear down. I'm working on idle wheelies, but I can't find the balance point going slow...yet.
Do you have a hand brake? When I started out doing Idle wheelies I wasnt dumping the clutch fast enough or allowing the bike to come up far enough. I would panic before letting it get high enough. If you dont have a HB I highly suggest getting one. I find that using the footbrake is sketchy and my wheelies are more balanced when im doing a seat stander. I was told by credibale stunters to basicly skip double pegers and jump straight to seat due to the stability. My advice is not to be afriad of 12'ing it. I had to 12 it a few times in one day before i learned how far back to go. After that it was cake! Best of luck!
