what stops my 07 gsxr 750 from wheelies

i just purchased a 2007 gsxr 750. i love everything about the bike except when it will not wheelie. when i dump the clutch the front will come up slightly and then the bike just slams down. after it comes down the bike has no power and will not accelerate until i pull in the clutch and rev it a few times. im hearing that theres a sensor on the bike that cuts the power if it comes up. does anyone know what to do to get around this problem.

i dont believe that about the sensor my buddy has one and he can do first gear power up... 600/750s wont do wheelies like a 1000 would ur best bet is to change ur sprockets -1/+2

The tip over sensor doesn't sound right. When you trip the tip over sensor, it shuts the bike off until you reset it by turning the key off and then on again. (That's one of the things that most trackday organizers go over in the rider's meetings because a lot of people forget about them. That's the only reason I even know about them.) And like the guy above said, if you disconnect it and really do tip it over, the engine won't shut itself off and it could end up being worse than some scratched up bodywork.

I am assuming you mean in second gear? Its because the engine has been moved forward slightly on the 06-07 models. This was done to help keep the front wheel down in racing.

It will come up it just requires a little more effort in second. When i first bought my 06 I was saying the same thing but I went out and practiced. Believe me I am no professional, I still have a lot to learn and am not consistant, but it will come up.

Here is a vid of some guy clutching up a second gear seater on the 750 although the original poster claimed it was him on a 600 until he was owned.

That's odd... I have a K7-600 and don't have any problems with wheelies... I find it hard to believe your extra hp and torque don't help, especially since you only weight like 5lbs more than mine.

this is a popular discussion, the answer that I can come up with is, go down one tooth in the front, and up 2 in the back, this will help tremendously.

The only thing stopping an 07 750 from pulling a wheelie is YOU.! I have an 07 750 and it wheelies just fine. If its cutting off though, seriously, then there's prolly something fucked up. You need to take that shit in and have it checked out.

I agree, I wanted to say it was him, but I know a couple people who can't wheelie the k6's as easy as the older ones. I agree you can, but it does take a little more effort. Its my conclusion to not wheelie mine anymore lol, I am getting a stunt bike, The bikes are to pretty to stunt!! lol!

the only thing that could possibly be wrong is the nut that connects the seat to the handle bars. fix that and your bike will wheelie fine

Wow you people are real noobs lol. A tip over sensor prevents you from doing wheelies huh? WOW!!!

I do stand up wheelies all day at like 110 and my bike doesn't shut off. Learn how to do a wheelie and stop blaming a sensor lol. Thats great

Thanks for the laugh

This is my first post, but I have just started learning how to clutch it up in 2nd gear. I've only held it up for maybe 4 or 5 seconds at the most. I have noticed a few times that it felt like I lost power. I didn't realize it was a sensor. I thought I might have been wear the clutch out. The first time I noticed it was when I tried to see what it would do if I clutched it in 6th gear. I lost power big time when I did that, but I've only had it do it a couple of time in 2nd gear. I just put it in 3rd and then go back to 2nd and try it again.

LMAO good thread thanks for making me smile. Nothing is wrong with your bike. I can wheelie a stock 600 in 3rd for miles just by throttling it up. No clutch. PRACTICE!!

What rpm are you supposedly pulling a stock 600 up in 3rd gear off power.There is not enough engine break in 3rd to get a good enough bounce.If you can do it share the secret with me.I have a hard enough time doing in 2nd without using a little clutch help.

I live in canada but thanks anyway.I used to have a prob powering my 600 in 2nd up but learned i was leaning forward but 3rd is not gonna do it.(not enough engine break to sink the shocks and i only weigh 155).I switch gears from 2nd to 3rd now so i dont really need to lift it up in 3rd but i would sure like to see it done in person.Just don't see it happening on stock unless your bouncing it off a little bump in the road or something.If you can do it though you must be able to clutch it up in 5th then cause ive seen that.

I'm having the same problem with my k7 750, when you dump the clutch in 2nd gear, there is something keeping it down, I've tired it around 35 mph, I've tried it riding at 7k rpm and dumped the clutch at 14k rpm and it won't come up, it loses power and comes back down, I was wondering if it was because I just didn't know how to do it, but I let a guy at one of the local shops ride it that's been doing wheelies and working on bikes for years, and even he can't get it to come up standing on the back pegs, so any help with this would be appreciated.

Whoa 2007, this thread is older than my favorite gitch.

If you are dumping the clutch at 14 grand you should have a whole lot happening. There is something wrong with your bike or your story.

It'll come up in 1st and 2nd, much easier with -1 front sprocket though.

This was standard gearing, 1st gear. I can just about clutch it up in 3rd now

It's because you're in second gear at 35MPH, that bike will wheelie like the day is long. You jut gotta figure it out. I'll agree the gixxers are a little tougher to wheelie with stock gearing but in 2nd gear your gonna need to have it pined at 35 MPH to do anything. First gear is a different story and no you don't need to change your gearing you just need to change your approach.
