Topic: Wheelie on a 125?
Posted: 12/08/2004 01:57:02 AM
Is there anyone out there that's been able to pull off a wheelie on a 125? I can't get a wheelie yet on the 125, it seems almost impossible. I tried popping the clutch and also redlining it in 1st and 2nd but nothing. Help please.

Can this bike spin tires on tar (pavement)? I never ran mine before ripping it apart. just curious and i figured if you are trying to wheelie it then you must have that info. lol

yeah you can wheelie 1st and second. i did it plenty of times, the bike just needs a little help getting up. you have to sit back a bit and also jerk up on the handlebars to help it get up.
You can also spin the tire on tarmac if you are careful.

Yes I also have done it but i only weigh in at 130 :} lol. The only prob i had was the play in the throttle made it hard to shift wile in the air. after about 10 tries finally got to third gear. Dropped it first couple tries bent lots. rim handlebars busted master cylinder list goes on and on. lol

well let me begin by saying I am an amateur and its a good starter for me I have had a lot of hours on it though doing jumps and so forth. Its still pretty much stock so I guess I have to do the mods first to get it up right? By the way I am about 190lbs and 5'11 so does that make a diff?

just sit back a little farther on the seat. hell stand on the passenger footpegs if you really want to wheelie. you can wheelie all day in second gear if you do that.

the bike comes up easy for me especially in first gear,just give it some gas and pop the clutch,it will rise, if not, check the idle, it sounds like your bike if flooding out, i weigh 180 and the bike pops right up. good luck

I'm 5'8 140lbs and i can wheelie my friends Honda 70cc no problem. Go slow in first gear pull in the clutch and rev it up fairly high. when you almost come to a stop shift your weight back and pop the clutch. Jerking back is important. Another way to do a sorta wheelie is stop the bike in first and let it idle. sit far forward and plant your feet. Slowly release the clutch and ease on to the throttle till the bikes out from under you and hang on tight. It looks like a wheelie but it is much easier to balance because of your trailing feet. with teqnuice 1 don't over rev the bike because you'll be thrown off the back. learned that the hard way several times
Here's a picture of teq.
