How to Pop a Wheelie on a Motorcycle : Riding a Wheelie Balance Point


Hi, my name is Jared Cummings. I’m here with
Expert Village. We’re talking about how we wheelie. All right, now we’re going to be
talking about balance point. When you’re in your sit down wheelies, you’re going to want
to make sure that you’re not going too far back. Again, we’re going to have our foot
covering our back brake, and that’s going to be our control in case we go too far. That’s
going to be our lifesaver over here. Again, we talked about this before, is our throttle
control. If we start chopping the throttle like this, that’s going to flip us over on
our backs, and we don’t want to end up in the hospital, so we want to be really conscious
on that throttle control, again, on the rear brake control. So if we go too far back we
can ease on that brake and bring ourselves back down. Our balance point is really important
because once you get to that balance point about here; you’re going to be floating. Your
bike should be feeling like its just moving back and forth like this, and up and down
like this, and you can just feel it floating. So you’re not really focused anymore about
powering it up there, and you’re not gaining speed, you’re just sitting right there at
that same RPM and just holding it. And should you need to make adjustments, it’s minor,
minor adjustments. So, you’re here, and should you have to go back, give it a little bit
more gas, to go a little bit more down, go ahead and just tap on that brake. You don’t
want to be jamming on it, it’s just a nice ease on that brake, bring yourself back down,
and ease off that brake again.

  1. just unlucky really, it doesn't always matter how fast your going or what gear your you mess it up at any point, i've been sitting on the back of a bike with someone doing a wheelie at 180 mph

  2. if you're bringing it down with speed and your wheel isn't straight… you could induce a tank slapper. Just keep the wheel straight… and come straight down. Try not to lean as you bring back down and you should be good.

  3. I think it's cause you don't even need 2 mirrors on a bike, you could just use your head to turn and look behind you, and that windshield just has a glare on it from the sun.

  4. Lol i got a gxxr 05 600 exactly like that and im missing the same mirror haha like he is riding my bike
