Re: HID, I haven't had any issues running mine for hours on end with the Trail-Tech stator upgrade on my 06 WR450 using the stock battery. As long as the bike is running there is enough power to keep the battery charged and the light burning, both bulbs on my X2.

Granted I don't have any thing else drawing power right now besides the lighting front and rear.

Do Cummo and Frans Verhoeven use the same technique?

Actually, it's not hard to learn. Start in really small steps, rocking back onto the rear wheel just as you add throttle and clutch, and when the wheel starts to rise, pull whichever way you want to go.

The more vertical the bike gets, the farther you can turn in one swing, but it even works on 950s in sand, even in really small steps. Each time you turn a little, the rear wheel gets new bite, so it's a great technique for getting unstuck.

You can practice it in your driveway even, the timing is the same even if the traction is a little bit better...

Sounds you're on a tight schedule, testing range on race conditions is going to be brutal but good practice on the other hand...

It all comes down to getting lost or not I reckon, that is the one thing that can leave you stranded with an empty tank no matter how many liters you carry... I always wondered why do they set up the refueling stations that far apart...

Keep your spirits up and physiotherapy higher!

I still think I'm too short (scared) for that one

Use a 690rr full of fuel when you make the video so it's a little more real! Lol.

Its actally as Ned says quite easy ( he mentions a 950), but rather than being on the bike I prefer to stand beside it, ( 690RR full of fuel ) when I drop the clutch, there is no real weight as the momentum carries the load and you just guide the bike to where you want the front to drop.

Is it best to practice this with your own or someone elses bike?
