How to Pop a Wheelie on a 4-Wheeler

Save

Riding ATV's and 4-wheelers can be a lot of fun and give you an opportunity to show off your skills. Many experienced riders like to pop wheelies and do trick riding. Popping a wheelie really isn't that difficult provided that you become skilled enough to maintain control of your 4-wheeler while doing it.

  • Learn to ride the 4-wheeler really well. You should get really good at riding your 4-wheeler without doing anything tricky or trying any stunts. Often, when you purchase your 4-wheeler, your dealership will offer a training course. Take it. Additionally, drive your ATV on flat ground, bumpy ground, hills and other terrain until you are REALLY good at driving it.

  • Ride your ATV on a ramp or hill. Get a feel for what the 4-wheeler feels like when its tires are off the ground. By doing this, you'll experience a bit more of what it's like to ride a wheelie, but with a safer way to start.

  • Pop the front end up. Let it back down. To do this, as you're starting out, hit the throttle really, really hard. As the 4-wheeler accelerates quickly, the front end will be thrown up. As it comes up, let off the throttle to bring it back down to the ground.

  • Practice. As you've learned to bring the front end up, practice by sitting at different angles on your 4-wheeler to produce different effects. As you hit the throttle, pull back on your handlebars to bring the front end up even more. Ride your 4-wheeler as far as you can with the front end up and on the back two wheels. To let it back down, just let off the throttle.

Tips & Warnings

  • Only do this going forward! Don't ever attempt to sit backward on the 4 wheeler and do this.
  • Wear a helmet and protective clothing at all times.
