Silver yea you definitely are right. I throttle up the bike but I think I'm letting the throttle out or just keeping it at the consistent point of just getting the wheel up instead of maintaining a light increase

Well Bean, I'd save your pennies for a 600. In the end you'd do just as much damage to your 10 as you'd pay for a cheap stunt 600. 600's are lighter and easier to control especially for new riders. There are basically 3 things to a wheelie. Your weight over the rear tire, throttle, and brake. You have to get your weight over the rear enough to keep your wheel up along with your throttle. Always cover your brake if you get to much weight back or too much throttle. A little tap of the back brake will do it, nothing to absurd is needed. Good luck
