Stunt Tricks

High Chair Stoppie

Here are some of the most common Stunt Riding Tricks.

High Chair Stoppie
Stoppie with the rider’s legs over the handlebars.

Basic Wheelie
Lifting the front of the motorcycle off the ground by means of either power or use of clutching the bike into a wheelie. There are many variations of the basic wheelie, some of which will be listed below.
A wheelie performed traveling entirely within a circle. Can also be combined with all other wheelie variations.

12 O’clock
Very high wheelie, past the normal balance point of the motorcycle.

Switch Back Drift

Wheelie with the rider sitting on the tank with legs spread.

A wheelie that is balanced without the acting force of the motor i.e. with the clutch pulled in. The Wheelie is so far back beyond the balance point of the wheelie that the rider must constantly ride the rear brake to keep the wheelie from falling over backwards, effectively slowing down. A rider can pull in the clutch to create the effect of a wheelie with no engine noise. Conversely some riders will pull in the clutch and peg the engine on its rev-limiter, called a “rev-limiter coaster”

Burnouts use the power of the engine and braking force to cause the rear wheel to spin, heating the rear tire and producing smoke. There are different types of burnouts, like the “suicide burnout” with the rider dismounted and standing in front of the motorcycle. The “chainsaw” is a form of burnout performed by the stunter standing beside a motorcycle lying on its side holding the motorcycle exclusively by the right handle bar then causing the bike to “orbit” around the rider while maintaining control during the burnout. In a “merry-go-round”, the rider lays the bike on its side and climbs onto it, then leans back on the bike while holding the throttle, causing the bike to spin round while doing a burnout.

Hyperspin— Kneeling on the right side of the bike, with the bike lying on the ground, and feathering the gas to spin around on the ground

Switchback — Any stunt performed with the body facing the rear of the motorcycle, opposite the direction of travel.

Christ — A stunt performed with the rider standing straight up on the seat or tank of the motorcycle with both arms extended while the bike is in motion. Also called a “Jesus Christ” or a “Cross”. Can be combined with a switchback.

De activator — Riding a wheelie on idle and jumping off the back of the motorcycle.
