Was wondering if anyone could tell me the easiest way to pop a wheelie on a 2006 Foreman 500 ES? Just Curious
Hook up a 1500lb trailer to the trailer hitch... you have to lean out over the handlebars to keep the front down when you take off....BTDT

Get in a ditch, put it in 2nd, stand on the back rack, and then nail the throttle.

Seriously it should "lift" the front wheels with a Wide Open 1st-2nd shift. If you want it higher than 8-10" you will have to persuade it with a little muscle and/or position your weight farther back. My 07 and my brother's 05 both do this and they are stock... for now.

alot of it has to do with size. you skinny dudes can get it on 2 wheels easier that us 250# big boys. put it in water and give it ****. the front end comes right up.

Never thought of it that way before, but us big boys (I'm 6'2" and 240ish) can get way on the back and use our weight to an advantage!!

i could never get my foreman to do wheelies without standing on the back rack. On trick i did learn was to load it up in your truck, drive to a kaw dealer, and buy a brute force. After that it should stand right up, whether you want it to or not. lol sorry guys i had to

There are a few wayz to do it. One put the wheeler in 2nd gear sitting still. give her **** and lean back. it will stand straigt up. another way is to sit still and in first, giver her **** and put it in 2nd at the same time and lean back. another way is to be rollin in 2nd just a little while standing up shift to 3rd and give her **** while leaning back.

There is all kinds of ways to do it!

1
While in first gear let it start rolling alittle bit backwards lean back and nail the throttle and it should come up!

2 My personal favorite
Stand at the back of the seat on the front of the back rack...starting in 1st gear get it goin bout half throttle then **** it to second pull back and give her **** and you can walk it through 4th

3
in second gear roll up to a big bump lean back and hammer it

4
sitting in first gear stand on back rack pull back and hammer it...it will stand it straight up!

I'm 6'6 and 230

I'm 19 !

They are easy to ride once you get it up! I can ride mine through 5th but everytime I shift into fifth it seems to lose power and come down! I once had it to like 40 on the back wheels but It took alot of practice!

Wow, I was close, I guessed 18 and that is why I said I wish I was 30 years younger since I am 48

I know, I was doing wheelies on motorcycles back in the 70s long before you were a twinkle in your father's eyes

Keep up the practice, you look good doing it in those pics!!
