    How do you turn around?

    by turbo250x » Mon Jan 12, 2009 4:54 pm

    When ur riding on a trail wide enough to turn around on but to tight to make a normal wide loop wat do you do? I stop lean the bike over real far, rev it up, and dump the clutch and sling a doughnut. I haven't ben able to get my 250x to get enough traction to do the quick wheelie turn around any tips on how to get a 250x to do this? (don't say wider rear tire :D )

    i've done this before with a pile up at the mx track, lean back, rev let go of clutch left leg out and pull up it sort of works in my way

    Drop a tooth on front sprocket, works great for the trails and helps wheelies. Also helps gain the bottom end power effect.

    Do a wheelie turn around.

    If you practice at home, from the side of the bike, just pull on the bars and drop the clutch with a little power, it'll work, I promise...

    showed my brother how to do it with his 250.
    All "R" parts will fit on an "X" if you try hard enough...

    Put more weight on your back tire, almost sit on the fender.

    For really tight single track turns (usually in the mountains or hills). While standing on the low side of your bike You can grab your front brake, and lift up on the swing arm putting your back tire on the up hill side. It is really awkward and heavy at first but once you get your back tire up high enough it becomes easier and lighter. Keep working your tire around all the while holding the front break until you have done a 180.

    I can turn my crf250 around in a bike length.
    What i do is i stand up and get off the bike. lean it, and turn the wheel. Give it some gas and pull it around, and the more gas u give it the more the tire spins and the sharper the turn.

    If you have an X or bike with a kick stand, you can get off the bike, lean it up onto the kickstand so both wheels are slightly off the ground and rotate the bike. You need some hard soil under the kickstand or you can put a rock under it so it doesn't sink into the ground.
