How can you make the front end stay down when grabbing a bunch of throttle for the next jump face that is only a few yards away? I havent taken my bike to the track yet but I took it around the yard and all it wants to do is wheelie over backwards. How can I convert all this torque to acceleration? :D

Gain 30lbs and you won't have a problem keeping the front down..... I weight in at 205 and just a little forward positioning keeps the front about 6" off after a hand full of throddle.....

I just lay on the bars, or hell, sometimes I don't. That's why I'm sitting here after back surgery from coming over backwards on the big triple. Dang! I still love that power though! I'm just a little more edumacated now.

I am pushing 220 and it doesn't help keep the front end down on my bike at all! I just get used to leaning forward a bit to weight the front end down but if traction is abundant it is hard to get around. I usually don't mind unless I am trying to get on the gas in a corner and she starts to stand up.
