Les lions Indomptables !
My gearing is -2 +6 . supposedly, this is supposed to be a wheelie machine without even trying, but it has never lifted on me. What am i doing right ? :scratch
There must be either something wrong with your bike or your technique, my K2 is easy to power up in 1st or 2nd on std gearing, even more so with only going -1. -2 +6 should have your bike flipping in every gear.
I agree. Haven't really tried. I posed the question because, everyone who has asked about my gearing usually has said that it must wheelie like crazy, so was just wondering why i haven't experienced that yet.you need some skillz to go with your gearing
thats funny. i know those lil bikes. they are cool as hell. wont run 30mph bt they will jump a house...well with out the 10ft swing arm there. i got a buddy who does that kinda raceing hes pretty good. that stuff is hard, you got to have balance and clutch control with that. whole lota skill required there.just a little....
Bike is neither stretch nor lowered. I tried doing a power wheelie (1st gear) a few times over the last few days, but no luck, not even a few inches. Thought about it some more today; I tend to have my weight forward usually when i ride, so that's probably why its not lifting. At 160lbs and 6'1, i would think it should lift even with my weight forward. Riding with weight at the end of the seat is a little uncomfortable. Need to get adjustable rearsets. Here is the bike.... first one from the left.... blackyou must be a real easy rider. no hard acceleration, no clutch dumping, or purposely trying to bring the front end up. with that gear combo on a 1000 you sould be 12 o'clock n in every gear. is it stretched any? or do you have the bike lowered at all?
was going to say, if i sit back full throttle in 1st my 600 will come up on me with stock gearing.Maybe you screwed up and went +6 in the front and -2 in the back...
or maybe your twisting the wrong throttle...the left side doesn't do anything lol
I can power/clutch my 600 up when I had stock gearing...your doing something wrong!
Let one of your friends hop on it real quick and see what they can do, but don't get mad when they loop it...
