|Stunterz Corner Do you like to ride a bit different from everyone else? Like to see how long you can ride on one tire? Front or back? Well this is the place for you. All Stunt groups are located here now.|

Congralutions on your bike, 250 is fairly small and kawasaki intentionally had it reving real high to all the power they can possibly doing out of it. Since you still new to the game all I would is practice clutch slipping and practice a lot till you can have the bike up to balance point. This takes a little bit of time so don't rush it. Its quirky little bike but would do anything you want. I need to know more of how you are popping you wheelies to say more and how long have you been wheeling.
I find it very difficult to just let the clutch out an you up, reb it up then let the clutch out.
I cant do it on a CBR1000RR and I cant do it on a 400 dirt bike so it is not the bikes it me. I know what I am dong wrong i am not giving enough gas because i am scared, I cant do it, I try to do it, and this is what happens, nothing but i go forward a little faster the wheel dont come up o sort of lunge forward and then it catches fully and nothing not even close to a wheelie am not going to learn a wheelie on the hard cement ground, i have to get on dirt or grass, I haven't yet but i think that is the safest most ballsy way i can do it. Most people have learned on dirt bikes. I wouldn't try to learn it on your street bike, I think you will fall i dont think you will not fall and get it, i think you will have to fall its inevitable its part of learning it. Unless you like replacing plastics, and frame parts while learning I am not worried though i will learn it eventually just not on a brand new Sports Bike.
LOL, ok so you are brand new to it. Nothing to worry you got a good bike to get you a plenty of practice. Just remember a simple rule if the wheel comes up too quick have the rear break covered. hitting the rear break keeps you from looping, or flipping over.
250 won't do well with power wheelies so playing with the clutch is the only valid choice. Practice letting out the clutch really fast as you go up in gas instead of dropping it. One way of doing it is letting it go halfway and then give the bike gas. Don't worry much about how high the tire comes up even a few inches is good. Right now the important thing is getting the timing down. Your goal here is to bring the tire up has slowly as you possibly can. This reduces the chance of looping and you eventually get good. There is no substitute for practice.
I burned up a couple of sets of clutch plates doing this till I finally got the timing to where I wanted.
Keep practicing and practice a lot. happy wheeling.
