  • Rear Tire Spin
    There are so many different reasons you can be experiencing rear tire spin when clutching up your wheelies. Here are some common things that might be causing it that will help you troubleshoot. Pavement ☑️ Seal Coat - it’s asphalt that’s been layered with a protective coating to protect it from elements like oil and UV damage. This is the WORST pavement to ride on. Very slippery and inconsistent. You will find your tire spinning out and then sticking unexpectedly. ☑️ Asphalt - This is the black pavement you see. This is the best type of pavement you can ride on. The best quality about it is it has is the consistency you need so you know what to expect. Consistency is even more important when you are learning. We recommend you find a spot ride practice at with Asphalt and don’t practice on any other pavement until you learn how to wheelie. ☑️ Concrete - This is the lighter pavement you’ll find. It tends to get really dusty because of its grooves harboring all the dust elements. This makes it slick and also inconsistent. Not as terrible as seal coat but definitely not ideal. Rear Tire Type Tires make a huge difference. If you have an old take off tire then that is probably your issue. Here are some tires we recommend per trick: ☑️ Wheelies - Shinko 777 or Metzeler Cruisetek ☑️ Drifts / Burnouts Only - Dunlop 402 (or any old take off) ☑️ Wheelies/Drifts/Burnouts - Metzeler 888 Tire Pressure ☑️ Between 18-25psi ☑️ Start off at 25psi and if you're still getting spin then let out little by little Temperature If it's cold outside you might have to warm up your tire first. Friction Zone If you're giving gas before your friction zone then it could be the cause of your rear tire spin. Try initiating your wheelie at your friction zone. Seat Bump You have to put all your weight on your rear tire to get these bikes to clutch up. Use the same body motion you would if you were to wheelie a normal bicycle.
  • What tire pressure for Wheelies
    ☑️ Between 18-25psi ☑️ Start at 25 - try clutching up and then release tire pressure slowly as needed
  • What tire pressure for Drift & Burnouts
    ☑️ Rear tire between 30-35 psi ☑️ Front tire between 20-25 psi

    Check out this video explaining the difference between the older model Dyna's (1999-05) vs newer model Dyna (2006+) We recommend the OLDER model Dynas (1999-05) for these reasons: - Shorter in length - Frame is smaller/lighter - Gas tank, fender and front end is smaller Lighter bikes are easier to wheelie and stunt

  • How to manage SIDE TO SIDE balance
    Tire pressure: Lower tire pressure the more manageable side to side balance is Weight distribution: Making sure your body weight is evenly distributed on your bike. This includes straightening your arms equally and considering how much pressure is on the middle of your bike (especially in knee knocker position). Pavement: If your pavement slopes for rain drainage then you will have to over compensate the drift with your body weight. Be aware though that if you ride in the same spot all the time you develop a habit of overcompensating to one side and when you ride somewhere else it will have to be corrected.
