How do you do it? I've tried before my rings were going [so probably low compression made it hard to pull it up]

I've tried a few times, im guessing you want to stand on the footbars, lean back and thottle at the same time. Same a normal bike?

It's possible with the right gearing but you need to have good timing etc.

I wouldn't bother, you'd end up screwing your forks etc. To be honest you'll never have enough power so you can clutch wheelie or anything like that.

Same as a normal bike?

Dunno about screwing the forks, I'd think they could handle it, it's not too stressful, but the engine and gearbox, and particularly the clutch, you'd wreck thaem in short order. This must be the task that a tuned scooter is ideal for. Having said that, a wheelie is the surest way of getting an instant bust if you are seen, not to mention everyone will think you are a total prat, so you'd be bringing bike riders into disrepute. Wheelies are for track days.

I thought as much. Well i have 14th on front [well will soon, got 12 atm] and standard on the back.

To be honest, i dont really want too either as if i fuck up [probably likley] i drop it and wreck.

But was curious to know.

I mean on a normally push bike. If you want to wheelie you stand up [not always] peddle in a lowish gear and pull up.

I dont like dropping the clutch like that. I really dont.

Stressing the engine out and dropping all the weight of the rider and the bike at that RPM probably would stress the crank so much

Will are you joking. I have dumped the clutch at higher RPM's than that and it still never lifted.

Your going to have to learn the art of clutch slipping ;)

Im guessing you've got to pull back as well.

Did you?

Also, i figured that it would be easier to wheelie using the rear passenger pegs?

I'm not into the wheeling and stunting shit. All I do is nail it in first and overtake all the cars :D

Yeah the passenger pegs would be your best bet, but your risking crashing your bike, is it really worth it?

True.

Rear brake control takes lots of time and practice.

Me neither. Actually i'll probably try a couple times to say i've been there and leave it at that lol.


dont do rear pegs lol, it comes up too fast, you can use the back brake to control it and you will fall off the back and be running down the road holding the handle bars with it on the back wheel

I dont talk from experiance... honest

Good point lol.

Not at all. Scooters wheelie more easily, the C of G changes more quickly with the smaller wheels, something like that anyway, you can keep it up more easily. As for Will, he get s a lot of practice pulling it up, clearly!

Yeah a tuned scooter would be awesome for wheelies. If you want to do some proper beasty wheelies you should get a 172 or similar. Be careful though, you may need new head bearings if you fuck it up!
