I was under the impression you could wheely most anything
You can, but when the 300's came out, everyone was complaining about the lack of power and how it cant wheelie.
An S1000RR can't wheelie (much) if you ride it correctly for it's intended purpose of going fast with both wheels on the ground. It will wheelie incredibly easily if you ride it correctly for the purpose of doing wheelies.
So everyone can't ride very well.
I can't wheelie my KTM400
I try, but I can't give it enough revs when I pull the clutch in, because I'm a pussy.
Not even. My first time on an S1000RR I lifted the front a metre up almost accidentally.
They’ll pick the front wheel up in 1st and second if you’re not ready for it, But if you’re well over the tank in a tuck like you should be for track work you’re not going to pull a full wheelie unless you want to. The bike weighs 400lbs ish, a rider with gear is at least 200-225lbs, if you’re up over the front like you need to be for a good drive you won’t get much more than a lift off the front tire. Moto GP is working with 250hp plus and they keep the nose down.
Of course if you want they’ll power wheelie for days.
You can wheelie it if you're good. It's terrible for learning on though. It doesn't have enough power to get higher angle if you are too short. So instead you have to reliably clutch up all the way to balance point first, which isn't good for wheelie beginners.
I'm pretty sure my '81 Gold Wing can't, but I'd love for someone to prove me wrong.
That's my goal, wheelie everything
That’s impressive. I’ve ridden my girlfriends and it’s super underpowered. Couldn’t imagine trying to get the front wheel up.
Be in 1st gear. Optional: Be squid. Sit all the way back in the saddle. Lean far back. Open clutch, grab a big handful of throttle, close clutch. Your front wheel is now up, potentially behind you, avoiding the last bit will require some more finesse.
First gear was easy, second gear was very hard to clutch up in.
I have more fun on this bike than my fully built stunt bikes though.
How do you put it down without blowing out the fork seals?
I'm thinking it probably doesn't have the torque for you to be able to let it down gently with the throttle alone.
My wheelies are pretty slow paced
Im at around 6k-ish rpm so bringing it down is not rough on my forks at all.
But i have slammed it on the forks, no issues yet... Yet...
Are you revving it? It redlines at like 12k.
Honestly, I wasn’t. I ride a Husky 701 and Scrambler 800, so I rely on torque like a total squid. I also tend to forget to cover the rear brake so I’ve had a fair share of loop outs. Haha
It's not underpowered at all, you just don't have the right technique. I don't mean that in an offensive way, it's actually a good thing, because you can always learn and get better at riding, but you can't make a Ninja 300 (significantly) more powerful.
I totally agree, I just need to practice on one I wouldn’t get screamed at for dropping, haha.
I used to ride mine shifting at 3k, as per manual instructed.
I found it's higher powerband gets a lot more felt power and response when you start shifting at 6k or higher.
Yeah, I didn't realize that for a while either. Most bikes make a lot more power in higher revs. Rev it out, let that motor sing. A lot of newer riders short shift and don't realize how much power they're missing out on, especially on inline fours.
300 gang lol
I wheelied my GS550L, I wheelied my VN750, I (accidentally) wheelied my ST1100 - then a few more times on purpose, I’ve wheelied my VSTROM 1000, I’ve wheelied my ST1300.
Vroom. Thunk. Air.
You can wheelie anything.
Fuck I need to get a Grom.
who said you can't wheelie a ninja 250?
bro i can wheelie my niece's barbie scooter and that thing only goes like 2mph.
who said you can't wheelie a ninja 250?
Look at posts from users with lower CC bikes. Always tons of people who will say you cant.
Is this in HTX? Think I’ve been to this meetup/group ride.
People have been wheelying the 250's forever, who the fuck would say you can't on a 300.
