It's hard, for me at least. I've popped it up a few times, but got scared and brought it down. Learn to ride and be smooth first, then worry bout wheelies later. Also, if you really wanna learn, i've heard that it's better to learn in 2nd gear, but it has to be a clutch wheelie, which is more dangerous. Nice bike BTW, you should remove the wings. Looks better all red.

NickIF yep raise the idle and stay on the gas, lower that back tire psi down to like 15 while you're learning. It'll help the side to side woble A LOT.

CRAZe Inc thanks for the tips.

I'm clutching it up from 0-10mph, just gotta get comfortable with the brake so i don't let off the gas, that seems to be my biggest problem. I'm still running about 25psi, I'm gonna lower it and see if that helps stop some of the wobble, but I think most of that is because I'm not smooth yet. A 160 tire isn't helping anything either I bet. I've got a 170 waiting after I'm done with this one.

I'm wondering if I should put the big sprocket on when I get it or just keep using these sprockets for now. To be honest I didn't think half of this stuff was possible with small sprockets on an F3, but it appears it's more rider skill then anything. Jacking up the idle to 3000rpm helps, too

NickIF those aren't power wheelies

I see you're new to riding. Don't worry about wheelies yet worry about getting to be "one with your machine".


Standups are way easier but if you get sitdowns on lock 1st you'll learn standups in about an hour

I'm guessing your clutching it up but remember almost no throttle movement at all, just play that brake. Another thing..... lean back and lock your elbows out, use your shoulders to steer

The brake has saved me a few times. I think all of the 50 riding has helped even though it's way different, just the motion of using the brake is a natural reaction now.

You're gonna have to give me some lessons on standing up. Everything I've read people say they're easier than sitting down, but I don't feel comfortable at all standing.

I just need to start getting smoother with the throttle.

Wheelies tonight

I'm gonna see if I can get some video up later, nothing special though. This shit is fun. I'm starting to worry about that can touching down, though.
