600 wheelies vs 1000 wheelies

I thought it was easier to wheelie the 1000 ...well I was out riding yesterday morning and I was clutching up the 600 and was like wow it is way easier to control the throttle .... way eisier to slow the rise of the front wheel and stand it stait up and down ( on stand ups ) and keep it there and ride across the taxi way ( I work at an CG Airstation and we use a large section of our taxi way fo MSF course stuff ) it was so much easier on the 600 , since I have been riding the 1000 alot latley my throttle control has gotten way better since I have been riding it , wich has allowed me to do things I could not before ....so I guess the 1000 has made a better rider in some wierd way any advise on progressing farther down this road of weelies and in the search of balance point , I think I might of found it finaly I have yet to go out to the road and do it and see how far I can ride one , but I try to not do to stunt on the road ...I think I might get a cage or some race rails for the bikes ...I just do not want to lose my corner clearance

1000's make you lazy with wheelies. you can drop the front a few inches and just bring it back on power at any angle.

Now the 600 gives you throttle control because if you start to drop the front and you are not at or around bp it will just fall regardless of throttle input.

I find both go vertical just as easy,and both come up pretty quick with the clutch but 1000s are more looping prone. Personally i like 1000's better you can just power one up on the highway or just bump the clutch with little to no wear on the bike.

I have an '06 GSXR600 race bike, and an '06 GSXR1000 street bike. The 1000 for me is waaaay easy to wheelie, but very easy to loop. The 600 feels much lighter, but requires a little more work. I'll take the 1000 any day for the wheelie department. Especially when scaring old ladies going down the interstate on one wheel. Yep, it's the little things in life that put a smile on my face.

For me, Ill take a 600 as a wheelie bike, 1st gear is easy to power-up minus the aggresiveness of a 1000. 2nd Gear Stand-ups can easily be done with a bounce and slip of the clutch, and once you get to 50-55 mph, it can be powered up. I love the looks on other rider's faces when I tell them that I have a stock 636, they always give me the, "How do you do that look lol?"

LOL yeah I'm 6'4" and 210, and these guys can't blame it on power. So their lil asses can't give me that this bike doesn't have enough power, because I'll give them the [email protected]$hit card! haha

that what i am talking man,oh and that 636 is a wheelie machine anyway when i was driving my buddies it was very happy to get up on1.but yea man the only reason i like to wheelie the 600 more than the 1k is because i think i can control it more.

Yeah it's definitely more easy to learn and not loop, I dont think I will ever move up. I just love riding wheelies and as far as power goes, it keeps me satisfied

The more you weigh the easier it is to pull up.your leaning the bike back not lifting it so having more weight to lean is helpful like a teeter-totter.I'm 5'7 so i dont know about height but weight can deffintely be an asset.

Never though of it that way, but sounds right to me, all of matter of physics.

Yup I've had 600's, 750's, and a 1000 and in my opinion the best one was the 600's. Currently I have another 750 but that's mostly just cause I got a good deal on it.
