Wheelies.
« on: November 30, 2017, 10:25:47 PM »
This is going to sound silly, but since the beta 7 update i haven't been able to do wheelies while on asphalt unless i use a supermoto.

The traction seems to be much worse all around, but it's bascially nonexistent on the asphalt.

Anyone know about a fix for this?  :-\

You want a stiff rear suspension and a lower rear tire pressure, Also play with your rear sprocket setting. A higher tooth count will make the bike pop up faster but will also make you have to shift more.

I did try changing the suspension to a stiff setup, and changing wheel pressure to the lowest possible.
yet while on asphalt i still can't do anything but spin the tires.

On a supermoto i don't have this issue, but considering the lack of 2 strokes for supermotos i'd rather not drive one of them.

I always thought a soft rear wheelies easier because of the massive weight shift under acceleration.

Because in tyre files the values of grip haven't been changed and are on default, which is like ice on these surface types.

In supermoto they have been set properly.

I did implement this onto my bikes and it worked wonderfully.
