Amont21987 I have no problem bringing mine up but I can't ride wheelies I have a tendancy to come back on the grab bar, actually I need a new grab bar because 2 weekends ago I came back a little too hard at haspin acres and it broke my grab bar where the bolts hold it to the subframe

americanmusc1e Traction A 660 is super easy to wheelie as long as you aren't spinning like crazy.

If you have stockish tires it helps a bunch to lower the pressure. Thats how I got my old Rappy 350 to wheelie. If you have bald tires replace them. When I got my 660 the tires were so bald I had to hit a bit of a bump to get the front end up. Now with fresh rubber on the back I can't keep the front on the ground.

PhearCVBz Hey guys, I wrote the 'How to' Wheelie Article linked in this thread and just wanted to stop in and say thanks for posting it, and glad people are still reading it.

The main thing is to just stick with it and practice.....there are good and bad habits and if you skim through the article you might pick up a few pointers.

Good luck and feel free to hit me up if you have any questions!

For some inspiration of things to do in a wheelie, check out a couple older videos of mine.....

boostedboxer04 Haha. Awesome. I've gone backwards hard a few times. I've gone through one exhaust, a brake light, and two grab bars. You pay to play though haha.

Tommy Warren or if your like me you'll hit the back bar, slam on the brakes, stall the motor and when the front wheels hit the ground the motor starts back up and revs so high you hit the back bar again...

boostedboxer04 Sounds like you and your friend arent giving it enough gas. Mash that gas. Give it hell. As someone stated before. You'll feel higher than you really are. The balance point takes time and practice to find. Don't be timid. Worse case scenerio, you fall back on the grab bar. Not a big deal. That's where the back brake is key. Always keep your foot over that brake

jthacker0066 Pop that clutch, but if you in a low gear 1st or 2nd better be close to dead stop and don't give it to much throttle or you be on your ass lol. 3rd or 4th gear cruising down the highway just sit back on ur seat or stand put your knee on it (if you want to see better), and dump the clutch. Works every time. Once you get the front wheels up keep it at steady speed, then when you get that down pretty good, start shifting gears on the back wheels.
