thanks 👍 Most of the wheelies are in 3rd gear (just starting to get the hang of changing gears while up on one) and the sprockets are stock.

hey talkinghamster, generally wheeling a 2 stroke is a lot harder then 4 stroke due to no engine braking and somewhat unpredictable throttle response, 4 stroke riders can get away with a lot more🤣 The best piece of advice i can give you is to make covering the rear brake second nature, for me it is the most important thing while practicing balance wheelies as it protects me from ass rash :applause: find yourself a nice field and practice clutching up into a wheelie and tapping the rear brake to bring it back down, each time make the wheelie higher and higher. i recommend a field as when i used to practice, sometimes i panicked and my feet would automatically come off the pegs and my rear fender payed for the mistakes 🙂 once you are friends with the rear brake you can take your wheelies as high as you want, steady throttle and clutch control are needed but as long as rear brake is covered you should be fine. i like to clutch it up to the point where barely any throttle is needed and then just work the rear brake and clutch. Hope my english isnt too bad and hope to see a wheelie vid by you soon 👍

Practice makes perfect

hehe 👍 a rev and quick clutch dump usually has the smokers pointing sky high🤣 it shouldnt be any different on your 250f (balance wheelies are a dream on 250 4 strokes ) instead of powering into a wheelie pick a gear and ride in low rpm, rev it up with the clutch and then release while giving the handlebars a slight tug, also sit further back on the seat then you normally would while riding and keep the rear brake covered.
