4 fingers and gripping the tank with my legs did the trick for me...dJt3xtbook said:
im freaking PISSED! i've been reading the stoppies posts and have been trying to do them occasionally when I have the chance. I know I shouldn't, but the only times I really pratice them are when I hit a red light in visibly EMPTY intersections. i've been just trying to brake harder than i usually would from around 25-30 mph, but i never have been able to get the rear end up. at the most i would lean forward and i can feel the rear susupension decompressing, but thats about it. im pretty sure something is wrong with my technique. i usually just watch my speed drop lower than 30 mph and then i compress both the clutch and front brake while leaning forward. i have gotten used to braking with only two fingers and i was wondering if i should try using 3 or 4 fingers instead. also, i think i should try braking at higher speeds as posted earlier (~45 MPH). any suggestions would be appreciated.

IF YOU WANT A NICE BIKE, DONE STUNT< AND DO THE SPEED LIMIT...also dont complain like a dam sally when you fuck up, remember its your fault...
At least not before initiating the stoppie. If you hit the back brake just before letting the stoppie drop back down, it all but eliminates the hefty "CLUNK" when the bike comes down. It's not the suspension making the noise, it's the wheel/chain coming to an instant stop. Stop the rear wheel from spinning while it's still in the air, and your stoppies will "land" nice and quiet.A_Fire_Inside said:
d. Do not use the rear brake (i think this is a no-brainer)
ebay is your solution.... my friend is gonna put up a whole front rim up on ebay from a 97 gsxr750 maybe he'll take off the rotors.... the rotors might be floating type.... i tried to shake it but it only shakes a little.... well at least not like my floating rotors..... but i believe its still all g. checkz out ebay..... your gonna be stunting it anyways.Sopfu said:
I just bought a 96 750, and the front brake rotors feel warped, at least compared to my older kawi. If the front brakes are warped like that, is it even possible to do a stoppie? At $600 to get new rotors, replacements won't be put on 'til next spring!

Quick ? Sometimes I can do these sick a$$ stoppies and other times my bike will just skid is there something I'm missing?
