    i do it all the time. its much easier with two ppl cause i only weigh like 170. u just put all the weight in the back and pull up. kinda weird to see. no special set up.

    trim all the way down so the nose comes up and stand toward the back.. rip the throttle and hold on... people get a kick out of it everytime i do it
    2 people is easier but it can still be done with 1 only not as long

    I did it alot until my crank snapped.

    Doing it with 2 people is a lot of strain on the motor.

    Adjust Your Trim Cables In The Forward Part Of The Machine On The Port Side At The Cam (pull The Forward Storage Compartment To View) By Loosening The Jam Nuts And Adjusting The Nozzle Till, At Full Trim Position, The Nozzle Is Tipped Up As Far As It Will Go, Then Tighten Jam Nuts On Cables. This Will Make It Easier To "wheelie" The Craft And When Running Straight At Full Trim You Throw A Real Sweet Rooster. Of Course At Flat Trim (best Speed) You Will Be Slightly Trimmed Up (because Of The Adjustment You Made To The Cables) Which I Have Found Not To Be A Problem, I Will Know More On That When I Get Jims Plate Installed, I Am Thinking It Might Be Even Better For Top End? I Made This Adjustment When I Pulled The Machine Out Of The Crate And First Set The Machine. I Had Done This To My Sl750 And Am Able To "walk" It On Water, Pretty Cool!
