A few Stupid Wheelie Pictures

I can't figure out why I always turn the front wheel when I'm riding a wheelie. When I bring it down, I do make an effort to straighten the wheel out, which is a good thing

It's a dirtbike thing. You're probably trying to correct any lean. I find myself doing it sometimes too. Looks sweet though. Nice wheelies!

...so jealous. Nice pics man!
I think mine's broken or something. You changed the gearing right?? And installed cinderblocks in the trunk, and replaced the front end with lightweight spaceage polymers...and...

Damnit.

Well done bro. The Coronas are in the fridge. Call the ball.

Dude, I don't get it, I think you need to commit a whole day to beating the shit out of your SV to learn how to do a wheelie.

Nice wheelies! That [email protected] is cool. I think you live at one of the baddest places on Chicagoland ... long front yard for plenty of off road wheelies and a front stretch with no cars around.. now that is heavean!

Are ya pullin on the handlebars ????

Could be what that other guy said - but if your pulling or yankin on the handle bars, you might cross over like that. Try getting better balance on the bike & lossen your grip (just a little). If your relaxed, everything should stay straight

Start off by doing this simple step. This is for beginners and should only be done with precaution in front of pretty chics:

-Ride in first gear and go up to 10-15 miles an hour

-As soon as u go up to 15 miles an hour, release your throttle and go all forward, sit tight on the seat and DO NOT BE HOLDING YOUR CLUTCH. Hold ur left handle only.

-As soon as you see your speedometer hit 10 or 12 mph, look face straight and pull the throttle 'very fast' up to 20-25 mph and that MOTHERF**** will just pop up.

-The more u accelerate the more it will come up; The more you keep holding it the longer it will stay up. Release throttle slowly so u dont get a jerk as soon as it comes down. NEVER LOOK DOWN or sides (atleast for Beginners).

Lemme know if its succesful or not.

that is the highest ive seen an SV, i think the handlebars make a difference in you turning the wheel. I cant really wheelie at all but underdog the wheel will come up if you just got WOT in first but you need to have little gas in the tank. I used to be able to clutch it up in second but now i cant for some reason maybe i'm just a wimp.

Don't feel bad Zoom. Underdog spent two hours on Saturday in the sketchy industrial section of town trying to dial in his wheelies...even the homeless crack addicts told me I have a lot more practicing to do...

you have a 6 so.....

just get to the powerband(where it really starts) in first and roll off slightly and then back on. should come right up, be sure to be light on the bars.

I throttle it up in 1st or 2nd, then shift 2nd, 3rd, 4th and then I run out of power before I can shift to 5th, but I usually feel like I'm going too fast and set it down by then.

Underdog, dude, bro, homy, dog, "G".

For Christmas, I think you should ask for different sprockets.

Try changing your gearing by going up 2 or 3 in the back or down one in the front.
