hey guys i need help with using the clutch in a slow wheelie. i have been practicing and am starting to get good at using the brake,so good i'm stalling out in the middle of doing it.(the one time it locked up so hard I got flipped over the handlebars and almost broke my back on the bumper. Do you guys put your whole hand on the clutch to pull it in or pull in with just 2 fingers. i tried with 2 fingers but my hand slips off.this is the only thing stopping me from doing some cool slow wheelies

you can try it with one finger.. thats how i use to practice.. now i use my whole hand.. sometimes i use 2 fingers but most the time i use my whole hand like I would be just normal riding..

try keep most your weight on the right hand.. maybe lean forward a lil bit..

I use two fingers all the time, wheelies and riding

Whatever is comfortable. I grab the clutch with my whole hand at first, and then once the wheelie is up and balanced I think I then keep 3 fingers on it to slip it.

i use 2 fingers, try foot in the grab bar until you get them it will help keep the weight off of your arms so you will have a better feel for the clutch
