Do you sit way back and pull on the bars?

I'm used to bikes that go up without any effort or take effort to keep the wheel down.

Just pop the clutch and give it throttle. Up she goes!

For 1-2 wheelies I usually stay sitting and you can just power up. Usually third and fourth are standing for me. Get the clutch-throttle-lean-and tug timing down and you got it. My best so far has been standing popped in third at around 45-50 then find the balance point then shift into fourth balnce again, and then I set it down at about 80. Good times! My problem is wheelies in the dirt. I just spin the tire most of the time. I'm sure its just a weight transfer trick.

Yup. Same technique just slide a little farther back on the seat.

Go the balance point, then do a clutchless upshift like you would do with the frontwheel on the pavement.


I can do offroad wheelies, when there are bumps or puddleholes.

I'm guessing it helps to have a not bald tire too eh? Lol.

The secret is trying untill you can do it .
You must shift when the bike is in perfect balance and is starting to go down , and the faster you can .
I use the clutch to shift .

So i do use the clutch and quickly shift to 3rd and trottle off?the same way you did when you pull it up on the 2nd?
Someone ever thought me just by kicking the shifter to the 3rd while you're wheeling without closing the gas...or is it?
That was sometime ago....and the bike just dive down....and i gave up....
Oh when I got the XR650R,i did a shortcut......the bike can just wheelie on the 4th gear.....so its more fun maintaining the distance at that high gear without having loud revving of the engine while you're at it...

Oh btw,i am having 42 tooth at rhe rear,and down 1 at the front
Thanks guys for the tips and techniques...

When i´m wheeling , the throttle is always on/off on/off , i shift when is off , it must be in that precise moment .

Hover your foot over the brake pedal - in case you start going too high!
