I've had my Foreman 450 for about 3 months now, and with all of the riding I've done....never have I been able to get the front wheels off the ground to do a wheely. SO WHAT IS THE SECRET? I've seen pics of numerous people doing them... My bike never acts like it even has the power to lift the front end...UNLESS I am coasting backwards when I hit the gas in first gear.

FILL ME IN ON THE SECRET TO THIS WHEELY POPPIN THING!

OR IS THE FOREMAN TO HEAVY FOR THIS TASK.

Thanks.

I find them tough to do with an es model but I can get mine up in 1st gear by sitting back on the rack and hammering on it, or put you feet on the back rack. A little incline helps allot or putting it deep in water. Good luck

thats probly why my u-joint blew up lol, but i can get mine up in first without popping it into gear from a dead stop and i can get it up by popping it into second from either a dead stop or while im doin bout 2-4 mph and shift gears while it is up threw 3rd and some times 4th. and i am runnin 29x12"S on the back and 29x10's on the front

it is easyer on a small incline and pull back, i put my right foot on the rack and use my left to shilf gears on my 300. beleave it or not but i can go through all the gears, this is on my 300 or even my old rubicon. not to brag but i am pretty good at riding wheelies.

I've tried a couple times and its really not something I'm dieing to do....but I just wondered really if it was possible since the foreman is so heavy in the front. I don't want to tear anything up. I just see vids every now and again with people riding wheelies, and thought it was pretty cool, but I've never really seen a video of someone doing a wheely with a Foreman. UNLESS they were in water.

my dad can do 1.. all he does is rev it up and drop it in first and he's runnin vampire swamplites all the time 4x4 and he breaks the back 2 wheels loose and pops it up each time with no problem... My dad has a good technique when he drops the footshift into first with it reved up.. i dont no how he does it but he feels it and knows right when to drop it without messin somethn up...

just drop the clutch from 1st to 2nd gear with one foot at the shifter and one on the back rack and nail it (i weigh 130 15yrs old) and lean back just balance it through the gears 2500 miles no trouble from it yet

ES is the harder model to do, but if you get all your weight to the back of the 4wheeler and pull back you will be able to wheelie. you may not be able to shift the gears right away but if you practice than you will get better.
