It will come up by opening the throttle or using the clutch and at what rpm you start with and how hard you hit the throttle?Just get much farther back on the seat, it will come right up in second gear, first gear is really easy but the gearing is short so it wont be able to stay up long unless you are able to shift gears. Now I want to get it up in second and then get into third for 100 yard plus which shouldnt be very difficult, you just have to relax and go with it...today I went about 50 yrds in second so just need more practice to get it right...makes it fun to really learn the bike. Coming from a dirt bike the HM inspires much more confidence than I would ever have on a true sport bike, but maybe that will be next...SF here I come.
no need to get back on the seat, the hyper will snap it all the way past the balance point in second at about 2500 rpms, shifting should be done at lower rpms since there is so much torque in the first four gears to "play" with the balance point. As far as steering goes, well, use your legs to move the balance point. Always cover the back brake if you are new at this cause going over is never fun!!It will come up by opening the throttle or using the clutch and at what rpm you start with and how hard you hit the throttle?
