How to pull 12 o'clock wheelies

Triumph riding stunt master reveals his secret to pulling vertical wheelies

How do I pull 12'o'clock wheelies, Kevin?

"It's all about the rear brake. To pull wheelies you need to learn to use the rear brake, then you can get the height, then you can change gear. I ride along in first gear, clutch the wheelie up then catch it on the rear brake. You don't need to push it that hard, a small amount of pressure will make the bike react. Once the wheel is in the air I use the clutch to change gear, it's much smoother, and get the bike in a high gear as soon as possible because the bike reacts slower to throttle inputs."
