Ive ridden for less than 5 months but ive put over 8k on my bike. So I am now comfortable with going to the next level and trying some new tricks on her. I have an 07 zzr 600. Im not trying clutch wheelies just yet, only power wheelies.

Here is a few pics of the first day, still cant find that balance point yet.

Any pointers on finding and keeping my balance point?

you wont find balance point powering it up like that. too violent. if you want to stunt then turn your bike into a stunter by getting a cage, sprockets, sub cage etc.. get off the street, hit the lots, get some gear, and be ready to crash.:banana

Fion- I would have some extra gear on but its 105 in Florida and the humidity is at 70%. It sucks with shorts and a shirt! lol

dorepsol- I don't want to turn my bike into a half naked ugly machine, all I really want is to learn how to ride out a wheelie. Also, would it be easy and less jerky and violent if i clutched it up? or would it help if I was standing and not sitting?

You dont have to have to make it half naked. My stunter is fully faired and sexy. I only say this because balance point is not easy to learn. You are at the point of balance which means during the learning phase it is very likely you will loop out or if your lucky and skilled enough to hit the rear break, you'll mouse trap your nuts and eventually blow your fork seals. If your happy with first gear 1 foot pow POWs then keep at what your doing. If you want bp then clutching it/prepping for bike for impact is the way to go.

Staggered standups are pretty popular to learn as far as comfort and difficulty and sight. Sit downs at bp are hard to see in front of you.

Thanks, I appreciate the help. As far as the fork seals go, how long do you think before the stock ones are done for? I'm going to keep doing the power wheelies until i'm comfortable with the speed in which it pops up, then ill switch to the clutch wheelies. I do want new sprockets and chain, possibly lower it too. How would lowering it (not a crazy amount just an inch or 2) effect the wheelies?

your forks will drip oil when the seals are gone. it will be visible.

lowering it isnt a good idea IMO

also, im no pro by any means at wheelies, nor have i even really made a strong attempt to do one. But from the videos i have seen and many articles i have read up on, make sure you do it slow and ease into it. Dont try to do everything in one day.

Also, i understand its hot out there and i live in east Texas where its the same. But at least put on some light mesh or maybe those stunt jackets and gloves...PLEASE PUT GLOVES ON!

As far as the heat issue, trust me, you'll be cooler in proper gear as it is made to keep you cool. Otherwise, your sweat is evaporating faster than it should to cool your body, making you more hot. Wear gear.

No offense, but using the heat as an excuse to not gear up is just that, an excuse. Its not even a logical one. You ever had pieces of gravel scraped from a road rash burn with a wire brush? No? Neither have I, and I dont want to, thats why when I ride, I wear a helmet, leather gloves, nylon Icon jacket, MINIMUM, and I should really be wearing the pants I own, and if I owned boots, I probably would more often.

I live in Arizona. Ive riden home from work wearing the above in 116 degree heat. I dont bat an eyelash. Im on both sides of the fence on this one...its your body, your life, your choice, but then at the same time, why not just wear gear? When you go down (and you will) youll wish you had, I promise.

Hello i am Albert Martin
Some of us only feel prime and comfy while sleeping on a floor mattress. Other people receive a lot of guests and need a quick sleeping solution for them. Choosing the best floor mattress is a process that takes a lot of time and research. After all, how well you sleep depends on the type of floor mattress you get.
