Stoppies

How is this done? Is it as simple as hitting 35mph and grabbing your front brakes? There has to be more to this, I grabbed me brakes pretty hard and nothing happened! Maybe just not hard/fast enough.

How "bad" for your bike is this?

Smoked puig windscreen
Frame sliders
FMF slip on
Fender eliminator kit
Galfer SS brake lines
Rental sprockets (-1 +2)
D.I.D chain
Speedohealer v4

#1 you need to lean forward and keep your weight up on the front end.

#2 some bike just suck at stoppies like my old SV650.

#3 you need good brakes.

#4 its hard on your front end, suspension/forks, and the rear for slamming down.

#5 IT'S NOT WORTH IT!!! I see more people wreck their bikes on stoppies then wheelies!

I can do both, but I prefer to stick with wheelies..... I'm not risking my bike over a slow stoppie... if I'm going down... I'm goin down having fun riding a wheelie.

I put on my brakes at the same time I just lean forward looking over my screen and up I go. Also lock out your arms stiff and your there.

.... start slower, its a weird feeling knowing you have no brake to tap to bring you back to terra firma

i learned to do them on my quad. lots easier cause no side to side balance needed. done small ones on the drz but in no way shape or form will i do it on my 929. heard about an old friend stepping over the bars and lookin back to see his bike falling to the ground. to me its not worth it.

if i wanted to do stuff like this i'd just do it on a dirt bike. I use my bikes for what they were made for. My R6 was designed for knee draggin so thats what im gonna do with it. I know sometimes the urge to wheelie overwhelms me haha

Grab that front brake hard enough and the stoppie wont be the only thing you get. You have to be progressive with the brake.

stoppies are the funnest and most respected trick in my opinion. You have "Estope button" like the rear brake to save you in a wheelie, takes guts and patience to learn.

I learned first trying to just pop them up at a stop and found it to be alot easier and honestly even safer if you roll like 35mph or so, and gradually pull the brake lever, until the forks compress. then keep grabbing a liuttle more brake each pass you take until the rear wheel starts to come off of the ground, little by little you'll be able to bring it up higher each time. Im no endo pro, (i can only roll maybe 150 feet) theres a few guys out there rolling over 1000 ft coming in over 100mph, but i have them down pretty consistent at balance point now.

the reason i say they are safer rolling them then just popping them up at a stop is becasue when rolling you have forward momentum to help bring you down when you release the brake if your too high for your comfort. The only times i ever went over ina stppie was at the end when i wasnt rolling and tried to bring it up for a high finish.

The key is to firly apply pressure to the brake leaver slowly increasing that pressure until the back end lifts. If you grab too much brake at once you will go down.

Best advice given. I learned them the same way.
