Paging the wheelie experts.

  1. I'm looking for some input from those of you who are profficient at

    My current method only works in 1st gear and results in a hard down when I
    reach the rev limiter - not good.

    I can 'get it up' (ok ok that's enough!) without any difficulty in 1st just
    by an 'off-on' throttle action at about 6000 revs. What's the best way to
    keep it up in second/ third? If I pull the clutch to snick 2nd, the front
    will surely crash down, yet it's impossible to "clutchlessly" hook up a gear
    without partially shutting the throttle which again would put the front down
    (wouldn't it?).

    Make sure the bike is past the vertical before changing gear, that
    should sort it.

  3. Thanks Daz. Usually when I go beyond the vertical, I think I may flip over
    and tend to ease off a bit on the throttle. I guess what I *should* do at
    that point is clutch in & change up a cog then re-nail the throttle. Right
    then, I'm sorted.
