Hello, i see many factors can make wheelies easier such as tire pressure, bald tire or maybe the positioning of ( handle-bar, brake pedal or shifting lever ). Anyone has any setup to make wheelie On a dirtbike easier plz share it here. this is not how to wheelie thread!! This is about achieving the best setup for a better control on a wheelie. For example, i just bought a yz450f 2016 and i am struggling with side to side balance past balance point. Got better when lowered the tire pressure but still struggling a bit!
I know there’s another tire post already. But it seems like no ones updated it in about 5 years and obviously even though drz’s haven’t changed much over the years tire technology sure has. I’m shopping for tires now and reviews are all over the place. What one person says is great another hates, one says tread last forever another says it’s gone too soon. Obviously bike, rider, and riding style, among a host of other factors play a huge part. Just wanted to see what every ones got on theirs as well as a few questions. I see most guys riding 150’s instead of 140’s. Is this actually an improvement in handling or just because lack of options at the 140 size? As far as guys riding a sport tire do you find it still warms up the same on a lighter bike? An lastly yes I do understand it’s the only thing between you and the ground so please don’t go to crazy on me. But, are the super expensive sport tires over the top seeing as your not taking your bike anywhere near those tires capabilities and your drz isn’t going over 100 mph?
Hi I have 2 different XL125 rear wheel/tyre setups. One is a superb original Akront -rimmed alloy 2.15x18 with a 4.00 R 18 DunlopK420 radial with OD approx 26.5 inches. The other is a not so nice DID chrome 1.85x18 with a 4.10 x 18 Chengshin with OD approx 24.5 inches. I might logically expect the 4.10 to be bigger than the 4.00 but these are the opposite. The 4.00 is the more purposeful looking tyre and looks more intuitively correct for the bike. Can anyone shed any light on what is going on here? Thanks
