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. :???:

How much room for error at the balance point? does it feel like it wants to hang there or is it allot of effort?

I plan on working on it soon. So far just some first gear power wheelies coming out of turns for me.

Think I am going up two teeth on the rear after I get the Tuneboy dialed in, should make it a bit easier.
