Any Tips for 2nd Gear Wheelie?

Hello everyone,

This is my first post, so some quick background. I've been happily riding my R3 for a year and a half now- about to hit the 6,000 mile marker. Exciting stuff.

Anyway, I digress. Back to the purpose of this post. Im seeking tips on how to get my bike up to the balance point in 2nd gear.

While I have no issues accomplishing this feat in 1st gear via a clutch wheelie- What I haven't been able to do is get my bike up in second gear.

I've heard others talk about being able to do this and I was hoping the great people of this R3 forum would be able to shed some light on how to do it.



Any and all input is encouraged, unless its about Phil- we don't talk about him...

To ride or not to ride? What a stupid question! ... Anon
