Hey bobby, welcome to the forum. The best thing to overcome your fear of popin a wheelie is to practice, practice, practice! Get used to the front wheel coming up and you'll overcome your fear!

In my opinion stand up wheelies make it alot easier to control the bike. Stand on your back left peg and keep your right foot on the rear brake. Cruize in second gear at about 45 mph, stand up, and get the hang of pumping the front shock down and up. Once you get the hang of that, while cruizing at 45, standing up, pull in the clutch and bounce the bike hard down, when it bounces back up rev up to about 11 and let out the clutch(dont just drop it, kinda ease it out quickly, youll get the hang of it). The key is to bounce it hard and to time it so that you rev up and let out the clutch at the exact second the shock is coming back up. If you have trouble getting it up in second, just try doing the same thing(obviously at slower speeds) in first; However, it will be a hell of alot more jerky.

Hopefully I could help, just don't go out and try to get it straight up your first time, take it at your own pace.

The safest way to learn is to go to an abandoned parking lot or somewhere where you have breathing room and aren't putting yourself at risk to cause damage to someone elses car/house/or person. Once you've done that get on your bike and go about 15 mph in first gear. Next what you should is what i call it making the front end feel light. To do this while going 15 in first gear simply pull in the clutch and rev the bike up about 2500 to 4000 rpm's and release the clutch in one fluid motion. Now this doesnt mean to crank the throttle back and drop the clutch. Starting out just take it slow. Once you have let the clutch out you should feel the front tire sort of " hop " off the ground. Practice this motion until you feel comfortable with the way the bike acts. Once you have mastered that then you should start expirementing at diffenrent speeds. the ideal spped for me to be going for a first gear wheelie is about 35 to 40. Just remeber to not over-do it because you will have to fix all your farings and you will have a sore butt. Most important though is what Tyler said. PRACTICE!

first off-,know where the power band is on your bike
second - dont practice on public streets until you know hgow to keep em straight and controlled
third-allways reember you rear brake,itll save your life
ok theres 2 kinds of wheelies
power ups-this is chopin the throttle then opening it up at your power band,and as it comes up back off the throtle very slightly maybe 1/20 of a turn and alway cover you rear brake if things get alittle too real just tap it and youll be down on 2 wheels safely,if your havin trouble try and give your bike a slight bounce on the pegs and open at the rebound

the down side to power ups is that its un predictable and your more likly to loop it

clutch up-the prefered way of doin things,as your riding slip your clutch in just enough for your revs to start climing and as your revs are climbing dump the clutch and at the same time open up the throttle and your front end will come up.
the down side to clutchin is that your front end comes up real fast,butthats ok just catch it with the rear brake


to slow a wheelie down alls you have to do is catch past your balance point(a point in wich everybike wil balance its self) witht eh rear brake and your bike will slow its self down,then just keep it balanced with the throttle and rear brake

the best way to learn is just to practice and take it one step at a time
the main thing is to cover the rear brake at all times
i dunno if im forgettin anything,i just had some really good sex and its hard to rember everything right now

+1 to all the above. plus have some one video tape you and you will be able to see how high your going. You will be surprised how much further you can take it and that should ease some of the fear of looping it.

cover the brake, clutch up hard from a slow speed, looping at a slow speed is better than crashing doing a power wheelie....get a crash cage!!!

i know, im gonna hear about it, but the safest wheelie is the one you dont do. motorcycles dont need to be on their back wheel. besides. once your front wheel comes up the race is over!! cant accelerate on 1 wheel.
