practice, you can do it on stock gearing big sprockets make it more twitchy too learn on, learn rear brake control and it's easy.

I'll let the stunters answer that one, but I think that should work fine.

I'm not a stunter but a 65 sounds steep to me. Up about four on the rear should do the trick nicely.

yeah seems MUCH to high... it wont be much fun just riding cuz itll always wanan come up at anytime with it that low... up a few in the back and down one up front is plenty......stunting will get old when you can only do it cuz the bike wont stay one two wheels whenm u ride twisities...I was gonna go down one nad up three but not now cuz i want it to corner well.. down one in front is all i need... but since your on a 600... 4 in the rear whould be aobut good to make it come up at lower RPM's/Speeds

I wouldn't start changing anything yet until you get the hang of riding them without changing the gearing our. It all you want to do is stunt with the bike then you could change your gears as previously stated. I go one in the front and three in the rear, but your bike is still going to want to come up quite a bit even during normal riding.

Riding is a pathway to many abilities, some considered to be unnatural
Always leave 'em wanting more
