i know its been talked about but i need some help with circles

so im gonna start practicing circles tommorow... and when i bring it up and let idle take over im having trouble turning it in to start the circle...im doing like a push pull with my arms and legs but it seems it wants to drop as soon as i get the slightest bit of turn , then i try and throttle it and it wants to straighten out..am i on the right track and just need to get use to countering this or is there something im doing wrong??

Re: i know its been talked about but i need some help with circles

going right is very different then going left ,but safer to learn imo..

get the bike as straight and steady as you can on idle and then start by just trying to steer the bike to the right by dropping in a little and leaning your body off to the right ,the secret is not letting the front tire down when you start to turn ..

once you can make a 90 degree turn with out putting the tire down then just do another 90 eventually you will be doing big giant slow circles ,by then you will understand the concept and you will just keep making them smaller and smaller ..

this alone will take a long time and the only thing you can do to get them smaller and smaller is just keep doing it over and over...good luck and don't get too frustrated

Re: i know its been talked about but i need some help with circles

id go order his subcage asap. made my bike feel a million times better. the fact that i had no flex in the rear peg made it alot easier to control it when doin circles.

If your scared to wreck it will take a long time to learn. If you go out and wreck a bunch of times your going in the right direction

Just curious, that wheelie in your avatar is you playing around right??

If thats as high as your getting wheelies, quit dreaming about circles..

But if your rocking idle, then get them ******* down!




btw im just starting to attempt circles also.. Tried a couple times yesterday but didn't spend a bunch of time at it

Hope to get out tonight


btw whats soo bad about left hand circles?
I figured going what direction your comfortable with would be the best bet??

I can spin sit down, staggard, and SS circles on my 150f all day to the left.. And I got combo circles to the left on my 50..
But i can't do a single circle to save my life to the right on my 150f, and I am really sketchy doing right handers on the fiddy...

So I was just gonna attempt left handers.. Prolly staggard or FIB.. But gotta get more comfortable with FIB
