Hey All,
I'm new to the board. Great thing you have here, I can see many sleepless nights checking the latest mods and the wife spending alot more time alone. Anyway I just purchased a 2002 Monster 750S... love it ... love it .... love it. I already cored the exhaust (unique technique with a hole saw and a dremel.. let me know if you want to hear more), got rid of the emissions crap + while I was at it put a K&N crankcase filter on just to get rid of more ugly hoses. K&N air filter, And finally got rid of the ugly A$$ end with a new plate bracket. Oh yeah plus i dropped one tooth upfront. To say the least I've been busy, don't even have 600 miles on it yet. I had one question though, Can the 750S do wheelies? I haven't really rode it hard yet or cracked her wide open, that break in stuff is driving me nuts, From my easy riding though it feels like it lacks the tourque to get the front wheel off the ground. Do I just have to wait till i can really open it up, or should i go up 2 teeth on the rear as well? Or is this all not needed I just have to be patient? Thanks!!!!!!

hey if I can pop one on my bone-stock 620 you should be able to get the front up too.. especially with the front tooth missing ;D

just get it rolling slowly, clutch, rev, pop-clutch (not quite a pop though..), and hang on.

I get my 01 750 up pretty easy in 1st. I don't recommend clutching it as that can lessen the life of the clutch. take it to between 4 and 4.5 rpm's inf 1st, roll off the throttle and roll back on, making sure not to snap, it should come up every time and no premature clutch replacement! Have fun, and most of all be careful.

oh yeah: disclaimer,
if you wreck, hurt yourself, or mess up your bike, then don't blame me, you are on your own


What my girl has to say about my previous post:

twirler: teaching people how to do wheelies - bad bad bad
twirler: if someone can't figure out how to do a wheelie, he shouldn't be doin it

Hey wheelin,
I'm not saying I am a stud or anything on a bike, but I am not a wheelie novice. Just a wheelie on a Duc novice. I used to ride a superhawk... long time ago, with that you could be going 30-40mph just crack it open and wham the wheel was up! I was just wondering the 750's potential thats all. So don't worry I won't hold anyone responsible for the dumb/fun stuff i do on my bike. Thanks for the info!!!!!
