Tried clutching up 3rd for the first time today instead of 2nd. Little body English and it goes straight to bp. Not even wringing the he'll out of It either. 13:45 gearing.
So could you explain your technique a little please? PLEASE?????Tried clutching up 3rd for the first time today instead of 2nd. Little body English and it goes straight to bp. Not even wringing the he'll out of It either. 13:45 gearing.
Body language specifies to lean back as far as you can like if you where wheelieng a bicycle. Then instantly before you hit the power curve in the gear push down on the front forks. Crank the throttle and if youre in a high gear it will slowly come up and you just lean back and throttle accordingly cover your rear brake! If you feel like youre going to loose it hit the rear brake accordingly if your doing it to land the front instantly like you will do learning it can be violent! Also keep the bars straight or you will speed wobble and crash! stay leaned back or you will go over the bars when landing the front very hard/suddenly. .:hmmm:I'm pretty curious about the body english too. Maybe VC can chime in, in his last vid, I noticed that it appears that he's standing at first, gives the bar a good yoink, and then (and this is the part that intrigues me) it appears like he jumps forward and sits very high up on the seat (near the tank).
oh, and I can't loft the front on my WR400 in 3rd, unless there's a serious crest in the road, and the conditions are "just right".
/i don't lean back the whole time. Just shift weight to get it up. I'm no pro. I did go close to 3 miles in 5 th on the back pegs once (buddy riding next to me watching the odometer) but usually just a couple hundred yards. I have my days. I always cover the brake, unless my foot isn't on that peg. Never used it. There's plenty of engine braking on the x
when do you apply front brake? rear brake? i get the whole feeding the clutch part but im stuck on the brake issue...:headscratBang down a few gears and feed the clutch out slow so it doesn't lock up. I use a very small amount of rear brake to make it smoother. And alot of front brake
