I have tried everything you guys of said to try to get my 03 Rincon to wheelie and cant get the front end up. I know I have a little weight on the front end winch, front bumper etc. but I have seen pictures of guys with front storage boxes Loaded, winches and bumpers and they can still wheelie. Do you think if I get a jet kit and aftermarket pipe it will wheelie. I also have 27 inch mudlites to help the problem. Do you guys think I will ever be able to get the front end up? Thanks RedRider08

How many miles do you have on it ? Mine was a dogg till I hit around 500 miles on it.Then I clipped the spring, now it will pull the wheels straight up with no problem. Wouldn't think that 27" mudlights would add that much more weight.I've got the winch, bumpers etc.

I've got around 745 miles on her and she'll hit around 65 on flat ground. When I pin it to try to wheelie it hesitates a second. I don't have a problem with speed I would just like to be able to get the front end in the air.Would a jet kit help me with the hesitation? RedRider08

Red,
Try putting a foot in the rear rack and make sure you are getting good traction. I have to do that with mine. I have the jet kit and the K&N and a 2" exhaust tip and I still have to put a foot in the rear rack to get it to come up. bigjohn is right about the mileage too. They only get better with age.

Red, I have the jet kit, K&N and a 2" exhaust tip as well, about $130 later and she will get off the ground now. Not like some people on here who describe just pushing the gas and she's up. I have to give a little tug but she comes all the way up now w/o putting my foot back. And like everyone says they only get stronger with time. Good luck and it takes time to learn to get it right.

Outdoorsman,

Where do you go riding around Houston? I live in Dayton. Ever been out to San Jacinto River between Crosby & Channelview?

TAK

I bet if you clip your spring that hesitation you have when you go WOT will go away.It did in my situation.

The jet kit will help with throttle response and mid range. The mudlite is a great tire but it will not hook up as good as the radials. The bias tires spin too much. With the Badland radials on I can sit on the seat and hit the throttle and wheelie. With the 27" mudlites I have to pull back on the handle bars to wheelie. I noticed that they spin more than the radials do.
