Hi guys, I am not trying to start another how to wheelie thread. But I am growing tired of not being able to lift the front wheel while riding. When I have tried it on: .. a 250´s 2 strokes I just spin the rear wheel, or the bike surges forward instead of wheeling. ... a 250 f the bike just surges forward. ... on my 400 exc the bike just surges forward and wants to pull my arms out. I have managed to do small wheelies on very rare ocassions, and i can start them up easily with help of obstacles, rocks or whoops but i cant do them on even ground or keep them once the front wheel is up. I know i am the one doing something wrong, even though i like blaming the bike´s power, the rear tire wear, the chain being too loose, and even the wind being too strong But i would like to clear somethings like... ... when you say dump the clutch do you mean pull it in and open the throttle like halfway or 2/3´s keep it steady and just release the clutch? ... Do you usually need to open the throttle more than 2/3´s to do a wheelie while riding on 2nd or 3rd? I have tried all the techniques like using the fort brake, pumping the suspension and pulling the bars but as i said the bike just surges straight into the obstacle. Thanks for any suggestions.
