Default CBR250R Wheelie




just wondering about this ... but if you choose to answer , is not about where you do them , just if you like them

...and if you like to leave a post explaining your choice , like: "i like them , just not in public roads" , that's cool too


i choose yes .... but think there should be a place where you can't get in trouble for doing them


to quote one of the cbr250.net's most notorious (now banned):

"Excellent info and opinions. We're blessed to have them here.

Thank you so much.

Please continue."

that's awesome! what gearing are you running? I've got my rear spring set on 5 and the forks sprung properly with emulators, so the suspension isn't working against me but I still can't get the front wheel more than 6" off the ground.

thanks to CBR250R ABS and Jme250RA


the bike can wheelie stock but is not the bike to learn on.

now running a 55 tooth rear sprocket to make it easier on her and i still have to crank the hell out of her to come up ... but when she does , is more about throttle and brake control

that makes sense! I learnt to catwalk on a Suzuki DR600. no need for balance point wheelies with that. whereas, the 250 takes a lot more finesse.

can you shift gears when your up like that?
The trick is you have to shift very low in the rpm range, because if you shift at the top- SLAM!

when a rider has really good control ...

... not only can he shift gears , he can shut the bike off , coast a few yards , start the bike up and keep riding ....all without putting down the front wheel

here's a sample of this i found online ... but i've seen better .... still a lot of skill on this one...props to dude



don't try them yet because im not pro and i suck , plus i've flipped shifting gears on the 50 once and put a hole in my chin .... not a fun night

maybe one day ....when replacement parts for the MC41 are not on back-order
