New stunt riders lower their rear pressure for stability especially for slow wheelies. Legit stunt riders don't drop pressure to ride wheelies.

This may seem stupid but once I install my rifleman 1/5 throttle mod do I need to have my bike retuned-dynod all over again?

Well....I finally did it haha....I finally got the balls to say screw it and just try some clutch wheelies in an open parking lot tonight. When I actually got the wheel off the ground about 2 feet I was laughing and had the biggest rush/smile on my face...
I did it for about 20 minutes maybe just going around and trying over and over...getting down the clutch let go time to ratio of throttle needed was a little difficult to get used to. I did sit downs because I tried doing the standup with right foot on brake rest and left foot on passenger peg and I felt like I kept wobbling just trying to stand up...:/ I over throttled it once and had the bike at about 1 o clock about crapped my pants but managed to put the wheel down and not drop it. Hopefully ill get better at it :/

Unless you have a RHB then I wouldn't be taking my foot off of my rear brake unless you want to pay for some repairs haha

Lol inked. Yeah when I over throttled it and it was at 1 o clock I had a moment of panic and my foot almost went off the brake. Was a bit intense. Do y'all find it easier to do sit down or stand up wheelies?

IMO stand ups are easier because you can see/control the bike better. Lowering your tire pressure will make your stand ups a lot easier as well. Staggered stand ups are the easiest stand up, left foot on passenger peg right foot on front peg. You have a 1000cc bike so you can also do power wheelies as well. 2nd gear and 3rd gear you can bounce the bike up easy in between 6k and 8k. I find it easier to do power wheelies but thats just me.

Practiced for a good 40-60mins today. Getting a little better still can't seem to keep the wheel up for more than just a quick up 2-3 ft then right back down. Hopefully ill get better. Hard to find areas to practice. :/
