Hey I am new to these forums and I think there great! Someone before said to me that warriors are easier to wheely than rap 350s. Is this true?

The warrior might be a little easier since it had more of a low end cam, while the rap had a new stronger midrange cam installed. The rap is 25lbs lighter though, so the difference probably isn't even noticeable.

I think the Raptor is very front heavy. I have never rode on a Warrior though. One of the reviews also said the Raptor felt very planted in the front also. It does feel very heavy compared to a 300 or 400 EX though.

You can get ANY bike nose up that isn’t the hard part at all - hard part is staying in/finding the bike's balance point once it is up. Many people can pop the bike up but it takes some skill to hold it up.

I don't find it that hard to ride one on the rappy. If you can ride one on one bike, you can ride on on any bike. Some balance a little easier (400ex for example) but it's all the same.....

Just can't be scared. Fear will not allow you to find a balancing point. Don't be afraid to stand it up, as long as you are not on the road or gravel of course. Start off slow so if you do go backwards the impact doesn't hurt as bad. The only way to get it is practice, and actually mistakes build confidence and awareness.
