well i dont know if u peeps remember my old post " 2nd gear wheelie on 600rr", but i was askin for advice on standin the thing up from second instead of first...peeps gave me lots of advice but i could not and still cannot get the bike to BOUNCE up in second...i was out ridin tonight with a couple of friends and there is this girl on an r6 tryin to wheelie and she asks me for help
so i jump on her bike a quickly realize that her bike produces its power in the low rpm's (5k) versus my high rpm's (8k)...so on the way home, im on the highway tryin, once again, to do a bounce up in second...and fail!!!
so i decide to get outta my comfort zone and clutch it, but instead of using high rpms like i do on 1st gear wheelies, i decided to go with 5k!!
I was so amazed at how, cadillac like, my bike stood up, although i quickly set'r back down due to the shock of it...so i go for it again, and bam, im up there!!!
i jus cant beleive how much less i gotta use the brake to keep from loopin, and how much less i gotta play with the throttle...ITS AMAZING
my only question is, when i shifted into 3rd bout halfway through the gear, the bike started to progressively wobble...is this due to tire pressure and/or flat spot??? how do i combat wobble on 1 wheel?? and should i use the same technique to do a standup?? i really want to learn a standup with out clutchin it, but if thats the only way...then i guess ill get comfy with clutchin it sittin down first
i know this was kinda long but i jus wanted to share my "2ND GEAR WHEELIE VICTORY"
