Default slow wheelies.

I have gotten wheelies moving fast in first and second gear down good. But i want to be able to do wheelies at very slow speeds. Do I NEED to get a bigger sprocket to have that control?

get them higher then slow them down with your brake, or clutch them right to the bp

this is what u gotta do.. just start at a roll.. HELLAAA slow.. almost to a dead stop. thats the most important step. then just clutch up to ur BP and its all about throttle control and using ur rear brake at the same time to keep it slow n long.

to help out with angle put your rear left peg down so you can put your left foot on it you can almost go 12 o'clock that way at any speed you want.

It's not F4i specific. The basics of doing slow wheelies involve a combination of balance point, throttle control and brake control. You just happen to want to do it on an F4i. The Stunters Corner can provide better information for that type of activity.

And for anyone who might assume that I'm being a **** because I dislike stunting - quite the opposite. It just has its respective place on the forums.
