I don't know where you guy's are coming up with 80+ mph with stock gearing. The YZ does roughly 75 on a flat surface at redline. Dirtbike did a test with the bigger fourstrokes and tested the top speed with a calibrated radar gun. The WR would get well over 80 but the YZ needs different gearing.

I was lookin' at the mph on the GPS. Unless it was way off, my stock (motor and geared) YZ should be worth a bit more than the 80mph I got in dry sand with a paddle on some harder surface. Just my .02, but I saw what I saw.

Learning to wheelie is safest when done in first gear doing (balance wheelies) opposed to the power wheelies mentioned above. My personal fave is sliping the clutch in third, low revs, and picking up forth early with fat steady throttle riding it till the front wheel stops spinnin. Who wants to be safe anyway :)
