Top 5 Dirt Bike Wheelie Practice Drills


In this post, you’re going to learn five awesome drills that are going to teach you how to wheelie, hopefully. We formulated some drills for you guys to take to the back yard to the track wherever you want to take them and work on. There’s going to be five of them and they’re going to be great drills to get you comfortable wheeling really wheeling.

Remember guys this is just drill work we’re not explaining anything here so if you’re not understanding what this even means make sure you check out our how to wheelie post it’ll get you caught up you’ll be good.

Drill number one is going to be just popping the clutch just getting used to that movement and I would say one to three hours of doing this will get you really comfortable. So when popping the clutch what you’re looking at is just getting the front wheel off the ground like six inches when you’re really comfortable there we move to our next drill. Drill number two is going to be rear brake control. You just want to get the bike up six inches maybe a foot hit the back brake bring it back to the earth.

If you want to get a little further up so you have a little more time to get your foot there you know don’t go any more than two and a half feet and then back brake bring it down. If you don’t use the rubric or you don’t take the time in this drill number two this is how people loop it out they’re not efficient with their rear brake. So make sure you take the time on this one.

Don’t slam on the brake super hard try to ease on the brake because when you get up to the balance point hitting the brake hard you feel like you’re going backwards it’s going to make the front end come all the way down when you may just want to come it down a little bit.

So you want to get used to being light on the rear brake to control, it doesn’t take much to get it to come back down you don’t want to slam the front tire down and throw you over the front. You’re going to learn today. Drill number three is the floater. What you’re after here is just popping the clutch getting to the balance point not using any brake not using any gas seeing how far you can go in the balance point starting to learn where that is.

It’s actually comfortable if you take the time on this drill to understanding. So, drill number four we call it a point-to-point challenge. So, basically what you’re doing is setting up we have cones whatever you have rocks you know matchbox cars I don’t know what you guys do but you’re going to set up two things you’re going to pop the front end up you’re going to wheelie to the second one.

You’re going to extend that to a point where you think you control that wheelie in between and you’re going to do that over and over for one to three hours and it’s going to be awesome. Drill five, again point-to-point but the challenge in this one is how slow can we do it. However comfortable you are I want you to try to do that as slow as possible.

So maybe have a buddy time it or account in your head and you’re going point-to-point as slow as you can. Alright, guys/girls that was the drill work on the wheelies. You’re pretty much going to be able to wheelie better than I am.
