Hello Fellow KLRISTAS: I've been getting this curiosity to learn how to pop a wheelie on the klr650.. Please don't laugh.. I have seen pics of KLR650 on one wheel.. so I guess the bike CAN do it.. I just don't know how. The reason I would like to learn is that if it ever were to happen 'accidentally' I would (hopefully) not freak out and crash if I know how to control it, and it might be useful (overcoming an obstacle on the ground) and not just a "show off" FWIW, I just put an pair of MCE Karoos, in case that has any effect on the "ability" of the bike to pop-a-wheelie. thx for your input!
