Hi
When I am doing a wheelie, and am about to shift, (which I am just learning and I love it!) do I use the clutch?
Also, can you write any wheelie tips,
Thanks
Vincent

no clutch, when you get the urge to let off the gas, click the next gear and keep going, when you put pressure on the shifter then lift for a second it will shift.

PS. I can't belive that i replyed to this post, no pun intended. :)

I use the clutch, sparingly. Just enough to make the gear change smooth and not risk damaging the transmission.

Once you are at the balance point, clutch use will keep it steady as you progress through the gears. :)

No need to grab a handful, just a little pressure (pull) with one or two fingers.

Oh, and don't forget to keep your foot on the rear brake. ;)
