My response is sh****t. not on my 600 maybe a 750 and up but no look in that department for me. Is it possible that I have to pop the clutch to do so or do I need way more practice?


1st gear. Clutch out. Accelerate to about 50 mph, cut throttle

coast down to about 30 mph, give it full throttle

Front end should pick right up


Back in the day my 1979 CB650 could easily do this, so I know your bike can
