Stoppies? how to do them right?

10-27-2006, 09:36 PM
i could them but not to consistently, all u have to do is slow down to a god speed jam on ur front brakes wile u push ur weight foward and make sure not to lock ur front brakes.you wanna be at the point that u are about to lock them and when the back end comes up let got to roll but jab on the brakes to keep the quad from going back down.

i hope it helps, it kinda hard to explain:ermm:

bassically be going at a good speed get close to locking your front breaks up but dont and do that till your back end comes up and keep tapping the break ( on off on off) like that to keep it up off the ground... remember there hard and a wast of your breaks hope this was explained a little better!:macho

get your weight shifted forward a lil bit..not way crazy...try to squeeze your tank between your thighs...hammer on your front brake and when your ***** end comes up, judge if u need less or more brake..it takes a while and you will go over the front end somtimes....

it may be harder on different quads.... such as if u come off a blaster onto your friends 250ex, fly down town streets without a helmet and decide to lock up the front brakes, flip forward and slide under the quad for the rest of the block....like a friend of mine did... ya lol

How far is it possible to go? i know some street bike riders will go crazy far but what about on a quad? im sure its not near as far but...what are we talkin like 10-15 feet? further?

ive never seen anyone "ride" a nose wheelie just slam the brakes and get the rear end off the ground for a few seconds

get a 450 hahaha the brakes are insane, well ican do actual nose wheelie and ride on the front tires for like 20 feet or so but it takes a hole lot of times and prectice and scratched bumpers ...... you just need to figuer out where the ballence point is and then get ussed to getting there and after that trying to ride out the brakes and letting the quad ride on them hahah it hard but with practice you will get it lol

if you have good pad life stilll you should be able to do it.. if you feel that the front brake has a spongey feel to it.. add more fluid.. make sure its the right one.. I added more fluid and I hond even have to really lean forward..

where just saying man no hard feelings .... its just realy importent .. you all know that !!!

stoppies are fun i can go around 150ft on a streetbike maybe 20 -25 ona quad lol.
i like to preload the front like said above just to where it feels like there going to lock up then apply more pressure until the rear comes up then just smooth ont he brake to keep it at balance point. if you pump the brakes its alot harder to steer

ive been trying it more since i last posted, ive slightly masterd it, though ima crazy rider i cant go without SLAMMING the brakes too hard going too fast..its really fun but my brakes went from new to about 70% FAST, ill load some pics tomorrow :devil: if your doing this..make sure you know how escape if the worst happens, one time i did it i couldnt get out of the way and the ex did a complete front flip trampling me, it was sweet though but i cracked 2 ribs, and yet another chunk of my helment is gone..im still doing it though rofl
