    Great info, i havent had any problems gettin the front up, just keeping it there. Been to scared to use the clutch.
    A four stroke would be better to learn on....

    Quite helpful indeed. Is there anybody here with experience wheelieing RGs?

    I'm sure it's possible, today I had the front a foot off the ground just under 'normal' acceleration in first, slipping it quite quickly and smoothly, completely by accident. I wonder what would happen would I were to make an effort. (The answer, of course, is that I'd likely cock up out of over-thinking it...)

    That was the second time ever, and unlike the first, no clutch smell at all!

    Mate, I'm not sure what you smelled the first time, but I'll bet you a thousand bucks it wasn't the clutch on an RG150.

    Well, that leaves few possibilities!

    I didn't shit myself, so it wasn't that.
    I don't think the engine did anything it wasn't used to.
    I wasn't going past the tinnie house.

    So just what IS that smell that seems to be curiously associated with being perhaps a bit heavy handed with the clutch?

    Dunno. But I'm pretty sure a fully enclosed, wet clutch you wont be able to smell. Could be full'o shit of course...

    To be honest, i found it easier to learn on my bike, the one that i actually ride day to day-- not some trailbike, i tried that -- just start slowly make sure there is someone there to help, wheelieing is a total; mental thing" you have to break that barrier" of oohhh fuck,,, that came up quick, and snapping the throttle shut,, practice opening the throttle little by little a little further, now im no expert by any means" just telling ya what i know, and what worked for me, get used ot the sudden lift of the bike first, before anything else, once you can lift the bike easily , even though you slam it down again a millisecond later, walk yourself through the steps, of keeping the throttle open another millisecond longer---
    now in saying all this, if you are a complete Moron, and have no sense of balance, or you were fucked or are fucked in anything to do with balance, ie walking-- do not fuckin attempt it , wheeliing is not for you,,
