You'll get it down, bro. Just push it a little more each time; practice is the only way.

I practice twice a day typically; On a side street leaving my house and on the same side street returning the rest of the streets are congested with cages.

I'll ask Eric Hoenshell, Nick Apex, Bill Dixon, and Guru and see who out of them ride aired down. I know last time I brought it up to Darius Khashabi he laughed and said that was the thing to do in like 2002.

I am seriously struggling to find a crash cage or something to protect my 08 zx10r when doing wheelies. Any suggestions?

You might want to get in touch with Sick Innovations, Racing 905, or Freestyle Ingenuity and ask them if they are planning on making one for the bike. I know when I ordered from Racing 905 they were made to order so they might make you one but I'm not sure how much extra that would be. If you know anyone that's good with fabricating then have them build you one and you're good to go.

Here's something to consider: it sounds like you really want to learn to wheelie and wheelie a lot. Consider buying a cheap 600 to practice on and save your 10 for when you're comfortable. I don't believe the cages are all that practical for hard riding. I think you might be better off having 2 bikes; a cheap 600 you can scratch and layover along with your G3.

Just something to consider

Need more throttle. Or you may be backing off the throttle a bit too much/quickly.

Takes a while to get it "fine tuned", but you'll get there. I'm finally to the point where I can keep it up for ~5 seconds

Zdawg, I would love to buy a beater 600 to practice on but that's still around 2grand I don't have to throw around.
