The ones on there are just fine for wheelies. Rev it up to 10k rpm and dump the clutch. That's it.

Bigger sprocket in the back smaller one up front. This will create less top end speed and more torque. And one more squid.



Don't steal. The government hates competition.

I mean like not do nothing wit it when you stunt you take your riding to a whole new level for example what's harder to do a wheelie straight down a road or a wheelie in the same spot while u work the throttle and cluth plus brake together and tryna stay up at very low speed

and how do you do a wheelie in the "same spot" as you put it? a wheelie while burning out? its pretty much impossible to do a wheelie in one spot without external interference.

hate? nah, jealous that i dont have the skills, place, or a bike to practice. i will one day though!

so no, i don't hate stunters. what i do hate though are people who assume things, dont communicate clearly, and place the burden on those who dont know what the OP is talking about in the first place.

you gotta have thicker skin than this if you want to be a "stunter." by all means, stick around, make yourself at home. but dont think for one second that we automatically know what you're talking about because we dont. not many stuners on this forum that i know of, so you'll have to educate us.

oh, and the time you spent putting up with me bustin your balls, you could of easily googled the answer, such as this example: 04-05 gsxr600 sprocket sizing - Stunt Bike Forum

Just be careful. Guy in town I that I knew was practicing in old parking lots to do the very same thing. He was an excellent rider, even did drag racing on his bike. Always wore full gear, too. One day he was doing stoppies and the bike came down on top of him. Crushed his neck and killed him.

If you have kids, like you say, then I say find a new profession, they probably want to keep their Daddy around.

Sorry. Couldn't help myself, I'm a nitpicker when it comes to proper grammar and spelling.


Needless to say, though, one of my friend's has THE WORST spelling of anyone I know. Nitpicking him hasn't seemed to change the habit, lol.

If you want to stunt add about 7 to 9 teeth to the rear sprocket (well, getting a bigger rear sprocket is easier than adding teeth to your sprocket), and add an appropriate length of chain to connect the sprockets together.

Try to get the rear adjusters as far forward as possible -- it makes wheelies a bit easier, not that they will be all that difficult with gearing like that! Unfortunately short gearing like that will make general street riding unpleasant, so either dedicate the bike for stunting or get really good at changing out your rear sprocket / chain.

Past that, you'll need a crash cage, tail slider plate, really hard underinflated tires, and a thumb actuated rear brake. And most importantly ATGATT, lots and lots of practice, a good medical plan, and life insurance. Make no mistake: stunting can be dangerous and you have to plan accordingly.

Another point: your kids may love stunting, but I suspect they will still love you if you are there for them for many years even without stunting. Just say'in.

Rob

If it has already been done, it is safe to assume it is possible to do it.
On the other hand, if it has not been done never assume it is impossible to do it.
