Heres another take on the whole stoppie business.... this sums it up nicely . 1) accelerate to 35mph, 2) grip tank well and pull in the brakes hard enough to compress your forks (fairly close to the locking point), 3) pull in a second time and "bounce" off your seat, 4) pray to god you will live to change your pants...

There is a right way and a wrong way, I will teach you both.

Bike setup: First, you need to have a good front tire. Secondly, you will need to have your front end at stock, or harder settings. The last thing you want is the front end to bottom out. I highly stress lowering your front tire to around 20 psi. Good front brakes help as well .

SAFETY! Wear a helmet! Jeans or leathers work best for pants. You want something that will grip the tank well. Find an empty parking lot, one that has plenty of space and good traction. Be ready to get off those brakes at the first sign of locking up, or getting too high. REMEMBER: there is not a damn thing that will save your @ss when you get too high in a stoppie. There is no special "rear brake" to bring down a stoppie, you simply fall over forward... and usually your bike follows you and lands somewhere on you.

The right way.... First get going about 30-40 mph in either first or second. First thing you do is grip the tank very hard with your knees and lock your arms. Ok? Now hit the brakes generously, to where the front end dives down and compresses the forks. Once the forks are compressed, you pull in the brakes a second time and lift up and forward off your seat. Kind of like a bounce... if that makes sense. Also you want to keep your feet well planted on the pegs. The second time you compress the brakes it isn't as hard and fast as the first, otherwise you may flip it. You will most likely get up about 3 inches or so the first few times. You may just *** yourself, I know I almost did. So... 1) accelerate to 35mph, 2) grip tank well and pull in the brakes hard enough to compress your forks (fairly close to the locking point), 3) pull in a second time and "bounce" off your seat, 4) pray to god you will live to change your pants...

The wrong way.... First off, obviously doing any of the above on the streets, espcially coming to a stop light (oil anyone?). The proper wrong way to do a stoppie is to be slowing down, or goin about 10-15mph and just slamming on your brakes. You will taste pavement this way, I could almost promise this. Let me reiterate; DO NOT DO THEM LIKE THIS!

Balancing: So you got them up now, but they always seem to go one way or the other? The key to balancing stoppies is simply proper weight distribution. Try not to put too much weight to one side or the other

Yeah I loaded up the handlebars and barked the front brake today after a nice spirited canyon ride and I got the back wheel up off the ground a few inches, so I said to myself, "Hmmm I want to try that again but a little harder" So I try another slow rolling stoppy (yes I read his part about not trying baby stoppies after the fact) and my front end locked up, luckily I was going 10mph so I rode it out, but I think I'm gonna put those down for a little while

30 to 40 mph, clutch in. RPM's don't matter at that point.
