When I was younger I could have filled this section with shit, but pictures where hard to do with a box brownie seriously though when I was younger Evel Kneivel was the shit, well for me he was, I had a XT 500 single yammy enduro, and tried to copy E K stuff, I built a ramp at the edge of a river (this is fucking true too) and I decided to jump the river, I was young and balls of steel, Fearless/stupido, anyway I did a couple of runs at the ramp , and decided I was going too slow,(50-60?)to make the jump so I hauled ass (500cc hauling ass) 75mph ish and hit the ramp, Fuckin plain sailing till I hit the end of the ramp, when it all collapsed, and I did prolly a third of the river 40 foot out of maybe 130 foot wide.



I'm older now and maybe more wiser, and possibly lack confidence to do shit, being honest about it.

Please don't knock stunting. being a kawasaki enthusiast and a general sport bike fan i want everyone to know that i do not support anything illegal in reference to stunt riding nor do i encourage anyone to ride without the proper safety gear. however, i do enjoy watching professional stunt riders do what they do. Hell i even would like to learn (the proper way) and perform myself one day. As, i mentioned before this is a profession there are actual competitions and those knocking the sport should note that our beloved Kawasaki's endorse a stunt team called No Limit starring a stunt rider named "Jason Britton". I am telling everyone this because, although i know everyone is entitled to their opinion, i'd rather not see members talking shit to other members in this section because they have decided to try to stunt. Secondly, i WILL police this section looking for the put downs, name calling, and just plain being disrespectful on both side of the matter and i will delete any and all of the posts containing it. If it is repeatedly done by anyone that has been warned i will issue infractions. I am not just doing this because i support stunt riding or i just want to go on some power trip, i'm doing this because i put the time and effort into getting these new sections up and going and i didn't do it just for the members that want to actually use the section to be harrassed and put down. So if you don't like stunt riding just stay out of the section period or keep your comments respectful and curtious of others. Remember there is tasteful humor and there also is just being a plain asshole and that won't be tolerated in this section. Thank you for taking time to read this and thanks for your participation.

I think no matter what we personally think of Stunt riders, they do have some serious skills IF done well, and to be honest even though I personally don't advocate illegal activity on the roads, it is still fun to see what people can do with their machines, so I think this thread is a great idea, because some of us like to ride fast some like tracks and some love to stunt, I know I did when I was younger.

I would like to see some pics in the thread as well. Its a bit hard to get a pic though, especially when your friends are also on a bike For those who do wheelies, do you prefer power ups, or clutch ups? I prefer to do 2nd gear clutch ups. Very managable and not too touchy

As soon as I get the financially stability to do so, I plan to buy a stunt bike for that same reason. I'd love to have a $1k pos with a full cage so I could not only learn rider control, but also run through scenarios and not have to worry about dropping my expensive shiny bike

i want to learn how to do wheelies but i don't think i have the balls. plus i hear that my zx9r isn't the best bike for wheelies. any opinions on the 9 for wheelies? its an '02. oh, and as far as clutching, i hear its more controllable but i don't have the technique because it just doesn't work for me, probably not enough throttle.

I had a ZX9 before I got this bike. I wheelied it all the time... 2nd gear stand up no clutch just throttle. just takes practice.

is the stand up easier than sitting down? it feels awkward to even attempt but if thats the best position, i guess i can give it a try. or should i try sitting first?

I would suggest sitting first. Standing wheelie tend to be easier to get up at higher speeds. I'd suggest starting out at 20-30mph sitting wheelies. Hitting the pavement at 20mph is much better than hitting it at 80mph

I did that back in the day when I was stupid enough not to wear a jacket two weeks after I had just finished restoring my bike. The cranckcase cover was the last bit to go on, and when she had stopped slidin down the road it had a fat hole in it. Now that hurt. Wish it was 20mph

sounds good....not hitting the pavement, but trying sitting first.
