Wheelie gearing

Recommended Posts

I'm pretty sure my gearing is rather high but no clue I top out at 70 and it feels like she's going to explode. What gearing should I move to to get more out of wheelies but still be good in the dirt/street? I can't get a wheelie over 25 because she doesn't have the umf. Lemme know thanks guys!!

Depends on how much engine you have? I'm geared 15/38 and can pull stand up wheelies in 4th @ 60 mph. If your topping out at 70 I would look towards technique before gearing. Might also be time to start the modding process.

my stock 2015 can come up in 2nd and shift to fourth no problem, my guess is you need more height under front wheel. doesnt take much power to keep it up once your at the balance point

E model, SM trim. 

Full scorpian system

Rejet

15-40 W/ 150/60 rear tyre

Clutch up in 4th (standing on the seat, needs a small pop)

 

All down to Technique.

16/39 on SM wheels will wheelie if I hit a bump on the throttle in 4th.  :devil:

16/45 on dirt wheels and will wheelie any time it isn't digging a trench.

 

A stock bike in all honesty stock gearing is the best compromise.  I used to swap the front from a 15 to a 14 for off road but I really noticed it on the commute.  If you don't need to run above 60 on the stock S/E wheels 14/44 or 15/47 for sure. SM is 15/41 stock.

 

There are advantages to having a  fire breathing 470 :ride:
