Mini Ninja (not pocket bike).

Growing up, a few of my friends had mini Ninjas (most were wrecked or stolen). Not the new pocket bike things.
I do not remember what size engine they had.
Anyone know where to find one of these/price?
I remember they were a lot of fun to mess around with.

-thanks.

I'd get a roughed up ninja 250, a xr50/crf50, or other 'real' bike before getting one of those. I'd buy something like that if it were retarded cheap only.

I think he may be talking about a YSR 50. Made by Yamaha though. Not Kawasaki.

yep ysr 50's looked like mini r1's.

Our government needs our help, they have an addiction. Our government is addicted to our money. Since they always have our best interest at heart it's time we return the favor. We need to have an intervention, for the governments own good of course. It's just irresponsible for us to let people with a known money addiction continue to handle our money. Lets have an intervention now so we can help these sick individuals.

How many of you crashed on your first wheelie attempts?

I'm trying to get past my fear of pulling the front up. The R6 will pull up in first and also on the 1-2 WOT shift. Everytime I purposely get it up in 1st I freak out and get out of it really quick. Should I just put on all my gear and ride it out? hahaha

Suggestions

take it slow..wheelies arent hard at all..its all in the mind set.....grow some balls ..also try video taping yourself ..that way you can get a sense of how high you get ..

To me, clowns aren't funny. In fact, they're kind of scary. I've wondered where this started and I think it goes back to the time I went to the circus, and a clown killed my dad.

just in the past couple of weeks i have been bouncing it up in 1st and 2nd. just getting the wheel off the ground and putting it back down, not riding it out or anything. I am trying to get to where i am consistant at getting it up, once i get to that point i am gonna start learning to ride it out. I just play everyday on the way home from work, but on back roads where there is no traffic to be safe. I have learned that its hard to get it up on concrete roads. I just take it slow and not try to do too much at once, i know it will eventually come and i will get the hang of it. Also i have read some tips and crap online, but dont do squat for me, i am a visual learner.

Stand up in second and give a good bounce with your legs and roll into the gas at the same time. Once you get the hang of it then it will get easier. Oh its good to practice them whenever you have a flatspot because they are MUCH easier to direct like that when you are in the balance point. I started doing second gear cluth ups but that got old real fast and I didn't feel like beating up on my clutch so much. Stand ups are easy on the bike as long as you don't slam it down. I can do one second gear at 35mph.

I have rolled 1 wheelie over in my 10 years of rideing shifting from 3-4 over a hill.


That was a wild ride that I do not remember much from except walking away from it.

IMO get a fiddy and learn to stunt one of those, so you know what to expect

A. your only going like 10-20mph most of the time when you wreck
B. you will wreck sooner or later, if you stay in stunting
C. What you learn on a fiddy does transfer to a bigger bike somewhat. Alot of stunts are harder on fiddys because your movement has to be so very slight. You still have to relearn the stunts, but as my friend says "if you can't stunt a fiddy, you really shouldn't try the big bikes"

The most important thing I learned was how to work the rear brake. Some ppl will never learn that i swear
I've only had my big bike 4 months, now i put my stock front sprocket back on to roll 2nd gear standups faster!

I've only looped one shifting from 2nd-3rd about 110 going down hill...just find a nice little road and start clutching them up in second...don't go full throttle, start easy and keep building til the wheelie is riding itself..thats the balance point

i definitely wouldnt do them in 1st gear.. try em in second gear, alot more controllable. i've never looped a wheelie but i have wrecked from landing a wheelie with cold tires, front tire just completely washed out when i set it down, didnt even have a chance to correct at all. just start small and get used to the feeling of it and work your way up. you can let your balls drop and just nail it but ya better be ready to fix yourself and your bike. lol.

Clutch em up in 2nd. 1st gear in an newer bike will loop out real easy. practice getting comfortable with bouncing it, bringing it up a foot or two, and you'll slowly start bringing them higher and higher.

You can bounce it, but that takes some coordination and practice. Theres alot to keep your mind on if its your first wheelie. You gotta stand up, throw your weight down, like you're about to jump up on a trampoline, let the shocks compress, and on the rebound WFO that bitch. You can practice sit down 1st gear bounces riding around town. Just give it a little throttle, let off completely, and when the suspension starts to rebound, crack it open a hair, and you should be able to bring it up as high as you want to. I've had alot of friends say the new R6s are scarier than shit to try and wheelie in first gear. Also, the balance point on those feels like its at 11:45. So riding out mile long wheelies wont be something you'll feel like doing anytime soon.

He's not going to nothing. I've seen him asking about a moped, scooter or something. I guess he just wants something with the power of his Tiller

Craziest riders in the world are the guys who race the Isle of Man TT Race on Superbike spec rides averaging 180mph
