I've got a set of lowering links for a DRZ in the garage, brand new never been used, you can have them for £20 including the postage, PM me if your interested.
DRZs are easy to wheelie, in first gear accelerate so that it extends the forks, shut the throttle and then crack it open and it should come up.
I'm surprised you haven't had any declerations of undying lust or requests for photos.
I know how to do it, I just can't stop myself pushing the front back down when it starts to come up. I have deeply ingrained ghey from accidently flipping a C90 as a yoof
Ta, but I'm just too scared of flipping it
Have practised no end - for a few years I had to use an old airfield to get home so tried loads, the keep the front down 'instinct' is too strong. I'm resigned to never getting over it.
Anyway, girl wiv DRZ thread......
We are very similar then - I cant help but back off when it lifts (although getting a bit better recently with practice) I flipped an NSR250 when a teen and had a nasty one, causing a similar mental block that could be referred to as a gheyness
Spend some time somewhere you have space and just practice till you are comfortable with the front coming up (edit - see youve done that)
Whereabouts in the world are you - we could start "my wheelies are a bit ghey club" or summat for people as crap as us
You need somewhere safe and quiet to practice, with someone who is shot hot.
Or book yourself in to The Wheelie School and have Fishman teach you the art of throttle control so you can learn safely.
Else you'll be picking up pieces of you and your bike from the floor.
Wheelies are not about just chopping and smashing the throttle open. Anyone who can wheelie well will tell you that.
Off the bottom in 2nd ro 3rd with the slightest whiff of throttle and some clutch is the smoothest safest way with a DRZ.
Might look at that too.
Does anybody live in the west midlands area?
