In the final section, we also give you two jump tricks you will love for sure!

Steps for Jumping on a Motorbike

First of all, you have to keep in mind that jumping is dangerous, so you must be well equipped with the right equipment!

You may get hurt if your jump is unsuccessful, but body protection will greatly limit the level of damage. Equip yourself with a helmet, gloves, knee pads, boots, neck brace, and chest protection.

Make sure you know the jump

The first thing is to know the jump before any quick attempt. You can cross it on foot or go slowly with your motorcycle. The idea is to know what your line of sight will be when you hit the track and what to expect to have confidence!

We also recommend you watch other drivers perform the jump as you can estimate the speed at which they are jumping.

Warm up the bike

Avoid jumping off your motorcycle when it’s cold. As a consequence, it can make jumps more difficult and also contribute to injuries!

Switch on the engine and leave it for a few minutes, and then take your bike for several laps. This action will make the motorbike expand and work correctly.

Starts slowly

With a heated motorcycle, mount the jump you intend to do slowly without going through the air. Find a small jump to increase your speed steadily while driving continuously to remove the front wheel first and then both wheels. You can use small elevations and ramps on the track.

When you start jumping, it’s a good idea to be in an environment where you won’t be seen by other runners, especially the more experienced ones.

Work on the body position

Body position is a crucial element for take-off and landing. You must be in a standing posture. Use your knees to grip the bike and keep them bent. Also, keep your elbows extended.

Place your head and shoulders on the handlebars, above the forks. Your upper body should be about 45 degrees to the ground. If you squeeze the bike with your knees and calves, you will ensure that your feet don’t come off the pedals as you approach the jump. Your position has to be stable and relaxed!

Be Careful with the Jump

Enough impulse is required to make a jump… But, IMPORTANT, this doesn’t necessarily mean you should go full throttle in high gear. Approach the jump in a single line!

Select the gear in which you are going to jump. Third gear is usually a good option. You should refrain from changing gears when you go to the jump or in the middle of it. If you are going to change gears, do it before you hit the uphill ramp!

Using a steady throttle is a good idea, and you can accelerate slightly when arriving at the uphill ramp. Remember, mastering the throttle controls on the bike takes a bit of effort and practice!

Then, maintain a firm grip on the throttle after reaching the desired speed and hold it during the jump. Accelerating the bike too early is likely to cause the rider to plummet, and accelerating quickly can make it easier for you to enter a risky ride in the air.

Another essential thing is that you have to always lean forward when approaching the uphill ramp and when exiting the ramp as well to avoid backing up on the ground. At this point in the jump, you must be standing.

A rider’s full body weight should be in front of his stirrups, with the body as close to the handlebars as possible. Standing gives you more control! If you are sitting up when landing, the impact will be absorbed by your spine.

Control your motorcycle in the air

You will need to have a solid idea of ​​how the gears work and listen to the sound of your engine. Low gears like the third one, work effectively when approaching jumps by increasing the rotations per minute of the bike as well as making it more responsive.

To shift into a higher gear, release the accelerator briefly while squeezing the clutch and while using your foot to push the motorcycle’s gear lever. To downshift, push the pin down. DON’T use the gas or the clutch in the air!

Stay off the handlebars in midair, as the urge to hit the ground will push you forward. You risk hitting the handlebars with your chest if you’re too close!

Land correctly!

Keep an eye on the landing zone once you jump. Let your knees absorb the shock and keep your arms lengthwise to make sure your chest isn’t close to the handlebars. The wrists must be kept straight to avoid twisting when landing.

Take into account that the rear wheel should land first, followed by the front. When landing, keep your knees tight. Then, accelerate slightly before landing to keep the motorcycle in a straight line.

Try to accelerate the bike for a fraction of a second before landing. Controlled acceleration will steer the bike in one direction and make it easy to handle!
