4th Gen w/ABS. Will it stoppie?
I've tried a few times to stoppie my 2013 ABS bike but I'm not having any success at all. High angle, rolling stoppies used to be my thing when I rode 10 years ago but I took a decade long brake from motorcycles and now that I'm back I just can't seem to stoppie this, my first ABS bike.
After gently preloading the front end I can feel the brake bite hard but then the ABS chatter engages at the slower speeds just before coming to a stop. Maybe I just need to grow some balls and try it at higher speeds? I'm trying to get back into it with baby steps. I.e. I just want to lift the back end an inch at first and build progressively to the big stopppies.
