Seat postion is important.mikebeary said:---Was he doing power wheelies, or clutch? Man, I can rev it up pretty damn high, and let the clutch rip, and nothing - is it possible that the clutch is slipping or something? I've only had it a couple weeks, so I don't know what a good / vs. old clutch would feel like. It seems tho that at some point, from what I've read - that the bike should pop up pretty good at a certain rpm. I've tried from almost stop to 15mph, high rpms (guessing cuz no tach). I think it may be coming up a bit cuz the front wheel seems to wobble a bit for a moment. But must be only for a split second. Would a worn clutch do this?
I saw a slightly built guy wheelie, nicely I might add, a Triumph Rocket III. This was done in one complete motion - he started out crouching on the back of the seat at about 15 mph, hit the gas, pulled back on the bars and popped the front end. Essentially, he powered the bike up to meet his body, as all of his weight was pretty close to the rear wheel. As the bike came up, it was easy for him to slide on the seat. Came down kind of hard, though! [cheeky].pt33 said:Seat postion is important.
ake sure you are back on the seat and your weight is back. Have your arms fairly stretched out to the bars while still maintaing a postion to where you will have good balance.
