while always able to ride decent wheelies , never been able to get it up and balance it , probably due to fear and lack of skill.

well no more , ive been powering it up in first and finally got it to balance and into second gear :-D :-D :-D :-D :-D

never could be happier . now if i could figure out why it falls into neutral
every 5-6 time when i roost it up in first gear . quit unnerving to hwere it smak the rev limeter and dump the front end at the same time .

i hope its my fat foot hitting the lever unintentionally. :???:

Oh sh!t is easy to do! I learned to wheelie on my DT 175 Yammie by going over, running after it without letting go, and diving back onto the seat! The pavement is much less forgiving... Keep the rear brake covered.
I'm a lot better at riding in the dirt too. I don't want to make a mistake on the street, because A) it hurts a lot more and B) if anything breaks, which is likely btw, it will cost a lot to repair.
