wheelie issue

hi guys, i have a silly question
as i enjoy long wheelies a lot, i was wondering if under these circumstances(bike 90 degrees vertical with 6th gear) R.A.L. provide sufficient lubricationa to the motor.
my guess is that especially the cylinderhead suffers big time

oh yeah, the bike is fe600 95' N.O.P (no oil pump)

Unless you are riding a triple digit wheelie for miles on end a problem is unlikely as engine rpm and load will be low.

That made me giggle Dale.

Say, folks, anyone know how long the longest wheelie is?

Anyone got any personal bests they would like to share?

(One goal for this year for me is to learn the art of the wheelie, and be able to do them at whim!)

you say potato....

hmmm, funny, my year's goal was to stop doing wheelies..... providing of course your broad definition of a wheelie includes the rider being dragged behind the bike....

thanks,

longest wheelie

hey parsko,
the longest wheelie ever recorded is about.............315km or so
and is has been achieved by a made in japan trial rider(with his trial of course).forgive that i don't recall his name though.

in my 96' fe 600 my wheelies stops when i am bored or when i am numb from vibrations....

in my opinion, if you want to learn how to wheelie try a small bike no more than 100cc(with a foot brake pedal of course) and some day you will be able to compete the jap

ciao,

I rarely do wheelies...
I actually only do them accidentally when coming out of corner too strong.

I have 15 42 stock FS 650 2002.

Anyone remember Dave Taylor wheelieing around the TT course in the 80's? I'm sure he used a small motor to keep the front wheel turning to aid balance.

It may not be the longest wheelie but I reckon it'll be the most technically difficult over 37 3/4 miles.... Govenors Bridge ...Gooseneck

I'm a bit of a wheelie nut. mostly due to boredom on road sections, but i tend to wheelie over any rough patches on the trail as well. i can usually wheelie a bike to within about 10km/h of top speed. i presume can't get the last bit due to aerodynamics.

there are a couple of wheelie pics in my gallery on my new 300.

the biggest nuisance i find is wearing out front tyres that hit the road at warp speed after they have stopped spinning. tends to snap knobs off, so generally i try not too but sooner or later it gets the better of me, and i'm blasting past everybody one handed tapped in top gear.

i also wondered if that contributed to the failures i had on my berg.......that oil reed is toward the front of the motor and i did wonder if it was getting starved...........i know the Honda 929 fireblades were no good for long wheelies as they had a pickup too far forward.

Have Fun
Jeff

Hi Jeff,
The Honda Fireblade engine is of a plain bearing design tolerant of nothing less than full oil delivery. The Husaberg (as most singles) is of a roller design and survives on scanty (splash) lubrication. Providing said lubrication has an appropriate additive package prolonged "Wheelies" (within reason) should prove of little concern.

The late Doug Domokos ( http://www.thewheelieking.com/ ) used a small electric motor to keep his front wheel in motion during long wheelies.


GodSpeed Doug. You are sincerely missed.

Best Regards,
Dale
