(In all seriousness, I apologize for creating the chain of events that caused you to admit you were a female to a whole new set of members on this site).
No apologies necessary! Almost all the responders in this thread already know that I'm really just a poseur chic.

OK,
I've taken the front brakes off my bike and wire tied the lines around the forks. I'm gonna go try this, but where is the part where you bounce and then pull? Is that the part where I yank? And how hard would you suggest I yank? Will the yanking affect my rear? I want to make sure the yanking gets the front up but I want the rear to get the right action too.

The steering stem nut must be removed and the upper fork pinch boots backed off a half turn from snug before yanking. The rear will get plenty of action.

Damn... take this out of context and sounds like we are talking about some reach around action.

If it doesn't fit force it, if it breaks it needs replaced anyway.

quick questions.

first how does getting rid of the front brake help with wheelies?

And in the beginning of the thread you talked about cleaning rotors, but any tips on cleaning rims? Brake dust building up and ruining my look?

Usually I clean rotors with used engine oil (preferably from a diesel). Recently I've been soaking my brake pads overnight in Goose fat, but I'm gonna try Whale oil and see if thats any better.
