Neither have I. When I raced super bikes, I never learned how to wheelie them either....and it was always faster with both wheels on the ground.........but I see zero need to do so now, especially on my quad....I've never understood the need to do wheelies on a dirt bike or ATV.
How much do you weigh? Im 140lbs and cant get and front up i just spinIt's all about weight distribution. The 1000 is super easy to get up. The 850 takes a little more but still not too bad. My dad even wheelies his honda rancher.. no there usually isn't a reason, it's just for fun. But that's 99% why I ride an ATV. For run! By the way the best wheelie machines are the atc70/trx90 or similar many hours can be waisted/spent on a pit bike or small atv perfecting the art of the wheelie lol don't forget to keep the rear brake covered
I found that both my Polaris' handlebars were rolled too far back for my style. I roll them up and forward till the bar ends just barely point up. I stand alot and the bars work better for me like that. Probably helps a little with weight transfer too. View attachment 136214
I can wheelie like a mountain bike forever i legit have jumped on the back of my 1000 and the front still wont come up im always on like hard packed dirt/sand and i jus spinI'd suggest practicing on a smaller bike. As some others have said:
Transfer all your weight as far rearward as possible while simultaneously stabbing the throttle. You want to get in the habit of keeping the rear brake ready to apply and be good at modulating it. It is easier when going up a hill or going over a rise. But I can get my 850 to wheelie about anywhere with the right technique. Well maybe not in totally flat sand or flat greasy hard pack. But it's really mostly practice. And I'd highly suggest not learning to wheelie on an xp1000. A pit bike or small ATV is a much better learning platform. Power isn't nearly as important as you would think. It helps, but Technique is much more important.
ur rear shocks are too stiff, ur not getting weight transfer to your tires, thats why it just spins.no transfer.I can wheelie like a mountain bike forever i legit have jumped on the back of my 1000 and the front still wont come up im always on like hard packed dirt/sand and i jus spin
