Burnouts

Okay, so it might not be "stunting", but most of us can at least do a burnout. Question is, how many out there do it for fun? It can get pricy, but ain't nothin' like a cloud of smoke and patch-o-rubber to take off from.

I have done it just a hand full of times in my whole time riding. I have seen some lose control and watch the bike flip and then it just got even more exspensive for them then just a tire. So I don't do it that offten if at all.

Heard about that first hand, at work the other day.. :shock: ..but then again, the guy that did it, didnt seem to mind, so whatever....anyways..Yeah, I did it on my 83 Yamaha before, and it is pretty sweet but nah, I havent done it yet on my Kat..my current rubber has to last me the rest of this riding season at least, so cant afford to waste it.




I won't tell, but you just got passed by a Kat !!!

I hold the front break in and push down on the front. Let the front break out a bit so I am moving and roll on the throttle while keeping the front break on a bit. You might have let the break out to much or not put presure on the front to hold it in place. Just practice and take your time doing it. Don't need the bike flying out from under you.

Put both feet on the ground, hold the front brake, shift your weight forward and peg the throttle while letting the clutch out. should be all one motion. Practice that a few times until you get the hang of it (or need a new tire). When you can do that good enough, slowly start letting the front brake out and start walking the bike forward while doing a burnout, and get used to the feel of the bike when it moving. you will get the feel of how much front brake is needed.

then when you got that mastered, try a few with your feet on the pegs, and your weight on the forks. rolling burnout in no time.

forgive me burnout gods if i forgot anything, but thats how i learned. It's all mainly getting a feel for the bike and reating to the feedback you recieve from it

The best time to do a burnout is just before you plan on buying a new tire. You were going to buy a tire anyway, might as well smoke the old one off.
