Best hillclimbing technique?

Recommended Posts

I was wondering what the best technique is for hillclimbing (body position and everything) as well as what the best gear is to do the hillclimb in. I have a 2001 ktm 200exc

Well it all depends on the hill, and what you're comfortable with but i would say standing would be the best. Stand in a semi neutral/ forward over the bars again depending on how steep the hill is. And gear selection depends on the hill. If it's a really long hill with a big run at it then you'd want to start in a higher gear then downshift as you run out of power. Throttle controll is really important, especially if its a relatively steep hill. Hope that helps :D

Usually stand, stay forward,, second gear and slip the clutch works for most hills I do.
