Wheelie

After reading a recent thread, I have to wonder... Who here can do a (legal) wheelie on their 250, and what technique is used. I have been able to do a power wheelie on my buddie's R6, but I can't get my ninja to do one. I have not tried popping the clutch, as I fear popping my head.

(and yes, I'm expecting a few s )

What do you mean by a (legal) wheelie...?

If performed on a public road there is little that could be considered legal at the point of lift off..

I should thing that one could practice this sort of riding in a large parking lot or private land where there is no conflict with other traffic and room for rider error..

Come and play.. Come and play...
Forget about the movement...!

By legal, I mean not on a public road. I have a buddie that recently got a wheelie ticket on his KTM 990 superduke. (yes, I have to attempt to keep up with him down backroads) It may cost him his driver's license.

I have not tried the fat chick as a passenger technique, (fat chicks as passengers on motorcycles is illegal in Virginia, as is riding with another dude) but a little extra weight toward the rear should help wheelie efforts.
I have tried the simple jerk back on the handlebar dirtbike style, with no luck. The clutch pop is the only technique left, as far as I know.

Don't get me wrong, a wheelie would be a cool trick, but im not that interested in doing one. Looking kinda cool for a few seconds does not justify a possible wipeout, I was just curious how one is done on a 250.

I can't see you getting around popping the clutch to do a wheelie on a ninja 250. Most people on bigger bikes have to clutch it to get it to wheelie.

Some things that would help:

Remove front fairings
Bigger sprocket
Smaller tires/wheels
Remove anything that will make the bike lighter up front

Oh yeah and clutch wheelies put a lot of strain on your engine, clutch, tranny, chain, sprocket,......pretty much the whole bike. On the contrary, if you can get a ninja 250 to wheelie, you should be able to get ANYTHING to wheelie . Good luck, wear your armor, and take a video if you can.

It's defenitely possible. I bought the 250 for my gf to learn how to ride. We were in a large empty parking lot and I grabbed her gear (I was far too lazy to walk to her car to get my gear) and played with it for a little bit.

15MPH pull in clutch, rev to 9K and let out. The bike was stock except for a Two-Brothers CF slip on (Thankfuly I got the stock exhaust with it because the 2-bros was horrible.)

Haha, it's fun and I defenitely have less fear with the 250 than my 600...less weight may give a false sense of security?

But thanks, it's pretty easy. If you're going to try this start at 5k clutch, then 5500, 6000 and so on. Little wheelies are still wheelies.
