i always wanted to attept it that way, but no balls. i can click up 2 & 3 rd with no clutch. it is the timing when you click up on the shifter & back off the throttle just a smidget & back on the throttle again. hope it helps. always cover your rear brake! no if's, and's or its your butts!

i just HAD to try with the new balance point. voila, you were absolutely right crawl. I sit back a bit (instead of before when i was in the center) and the thing kicks up with ease. i have a new found respect for my bike.

I weigh about 220-230 .. I have a feeling I am in the same boat.

I have a Ducati 916... when I had my R1 .. the front wheel would come up just when I got on the throttle a little too hard.

This damn thing never even gets light in the front.. its like its Nailed to the cement.

First let me say this, if you are not comfortable with the idea of doing a wheelie for any reason what-so-ever, then don't do it. A lot of that is just comfort with your riding in general. Odds are if you have the throttle and overall bike control that you need, you will feel comfortable trying to loft the wheel. It isn't an insult, just don't do what you are not comfortable doing.

I rode with some SBF guys today, and I didn't get a lot of criticism of my practicing from the experienced guy, so I am guessing I was pretty much on the right track. So, from personal experience:

-I always use the back brake for normal riding, I don't for wheelies.

-I prefer to clutch them up. Though I have gotten better at power ups, I am more comfortable using the clutch. I understand that is rare.

-Most of my failed attempts were from leaning forward. Towards the beginning I didn't notice it, but I eventually did. It still took a while to stop leaning forward. You don't lean back either, just sit comfortable.

If I can power wheelie a Buell X1, that supports the author stating that you can power wheelie any modern 600+ bike. The X1 puts down about 80 HP, and is heavy.

You are not going to go from total novice to riding stand-ups for miles on end in one day, so don't push it, just have fun.

To reiterate, the original posted intructions are for good riders who want some tips at how to wheelie. My tips are as a good rider, just learning how to wheelie.

The 1000RR is known for being a planted bike, and heavy for its class. Obviously it has more then enough power to loft the wheel at anything around 100 MPH or less (from experience), it is also known for being a crap stunt bike. I have no intention of hitting the balance point on this bike. Just having some fun (good for freeway on ramps ) and getting even more throttle control experience (you can never have enough throttle control on a liter bike).

yzf600r wheelies, yeah bro sitting far back helps, im a slimer rider so i tend to molest the tank but that way u have to bounce it which hurts your back, i sit towards the passenger seat contour and it comes up pretty cool but standing a little on your pegs and arpund 6k jus gun it with a small bounce it'll come up nice, its hard for me to do it and keep my brake covered so i bent my brake so its within reach to tap it, careful at night though bro
