Well I have learned how to wheely pretty good after yesterday spending 2 hours in a farmers field wheelying and jumping, well i can get up to 3rd gear from a dead stop, but i always forget to put the back brake on when i start to go over and i cracked my tail light. How can i make it so i ca hit the back brake, sometimes i also lose thought of where it is and miss it, give me advice for hitting the back break to bring me down.

Move your foot...lol...when you need to use the back brake, just press down with your foot until you hit the brake...and since you have a blaster...you have a really bad back brake...lol...i usually just let of the gas, instead of useing the back brake, but I try not to get the front way up...

The Polaris stuff is really good in this particular aspect. All front and rear brakes are right there at your left hand. You can keep your hand there and wheelie all day without fear of going over backwards. 8)

Try pulling in the clutch. It won't get you down as fast, but it works for me[/b]
Do not pull in the clutch dude or youll learn the hard way, if you pull the clutch in then accidentally let go of it well youll go back hard and bust your a**.

If you wait until you are about to go over and then think about using the rear brake you'll never get to it in time. You need to practice using the brake. Pop the front up and then press on the rear brake just to feel what happens. If you keep doing this then you will get to where it is second nature to hit the brake when you need it. You will also be able to wheelie higher and slower which is far more impressive in my book.

The Z should have enough power to pull a wheelie from a dead stop in 1st then you can slowly work your way up shiftin through the gears. But I would say poppin the clutch isnt to good on the tranny and I dont do it on mine. Plus try practicing on a 15-20* incline (long hill in your yard or a field). This will help you keep the front up and balance better. I can pull one in every gear except 5th.....and wheeling in 4th is wicked, think of it on a Z. :p

The easiest way I find to pull wheelies is in 4th gear. Just roll in 4th hammer it and pull up. You can keep the revs low and use the low end power to keep the quad up. Once you find the balance point you need no power to keep it up. Just hold the throttle to stay at the balance point.

does the z idle go without giving it gas like the raptor caus ocasionaly whil im wheeling my friends raptor ill hit the grab bar hard and my hands slip and ill fall off the back and when i did it in this fenced in field i forgot about the idle cause i was laughing so hard and the rapter just kept going but my friend yelled at me just in time to go catch it before it hit the fence so i was just wondering if the z does that as well

Popping the clutch is bad for the z. Lean back and then give it gas. Try it in first and then work your way up. :)

If your front tires are still spinning while wheeling you can tap the front break for a little nudge down. Do it on my gsxr all the time. Havent had much time doing them on my z400 as its not fully broke in yet. But it pulls up in first and second with little to no leaning back and who needs the clutch on these light suckers. hehe When i start to go over i hit the back break though. Just instinct imo. Hope your wearing your brain bucket when doing that cause i dont. lol

on a blaster wheelies are tricky cuz there is a point where you cant do anything and its not far from bein on the bar....you need a hydraulic rear brake cuz the motor sits to far back in the chassis to just let off of the gas...my friend has one and you njus have to practice on a blaster...its really fun to go in first stand up then pop the clutch to second its faster and feels cooler standin up but it really bends grab bars when u go fast....POPPING THE CLUTCH IS BAD FOR THE TRANNY!!!!! ITS IS JUST LIKE SHIFTING WITH OUT THE CLUTCH!!!!ONLY NOT AS BAD!!!!

i jus said its bad i didnt say i didnt do it
