You can wheelie TeenWolf, you just don't know that yet. There is a mental block in your brain that comes from fear. The fear of falling off backwards and possible hurting yourself or the quad. Just practice everyday. First gear is really touchy, so I suggest 2cnd for starters. Personally, I find it easier to learn standing up as opposed to sitting. Just keep popping it up, and use the throttle to ride it out as long as you can. As the quad falls down in the front, you will instinctively gas it to bring it back up. This method is right, but throttle only goes so far when trying to wheelie.

You have to find the balance point. It's scary at first, because when you do find it, you feel as if the quad is way too high, and about to tip over. You'll know it when you get there, because the quad feels weightless, and at this point, you are still using throttle and brake, but the main objective is to "BALANCE" yourself .

Try starting with left knee on seat. Left foot in grab bar, and right leg in straight position covering brake. May take 2 weeks, may take 2 months, but eventually you'll get it.


Converted to 450 still Yamaha though

3rd gear is best wheelie gear in my opinion. Let the engine rev down in third, lean back, pull up, and give it gas! Not hard just take practice

Well you can go like I do and put a motor that is waay to big into your raptor like my zx14 motor, grab some throttle, a set of paddle tires and just hang on! The guy on the banshee was a little curious what just passed him too!

That's freaking awesome haha my dad has a Polaris 330 utility quad and we will race and I'll let him get like 6 quad lengths ahead, then punch it and pass him doing a wheelie hahaha it's like the ultimate insult to a quad to pass it while doing a wheelie
