I ride a 1996 CR 250>so it's alot different than a thumper.I can sit on the gas tank or on the rear fender and do a wheelie.As for which gear, I start out in 4th and go to 5th, but for u learning start out in 2nd or 3rd.Practice doing them sitting down.Standing is alot harder.When learning stay in one gear until you get comfortable with shifting while you wheelie.Dont practice doing them in 1st , it's to low geared and torqy.Oh and when practicing them have your right foot by the rear brake pedel>just in case you start to go over.
