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

jdm_turbo_civic 08-13-2007 10:18 AM

its called a tip over sensor i think..i think you bike has to be up hi to trip it.

mikeytas 08-13-2007 10:31 AM

i just called 10 dealerships an only one would answer it and he said the same thing its the tip over sensor too. do you know what will appen if i just unplug and any tips on where i would find it.

Yelocala 08-13-2007 10:34 AM

tipover sensor
 
nooooooooo if you take that off and wreck your bike the engine will keep running, and eat itself

Chango 08-13-2007 10:42 AM

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.

jay06gixxer 08-13-2007 03:34 PM

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.

lostsurfer4536 08-13-2007 03:39 PM

u can wheelie a 250 in second gear just need to know how to. dont touch the gearing just practice technique. i can bounce my 600 in 3rd with no clutch....a 750 should have no problem

splymale 08-13-2007 03:44 PM

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.:thumbup:

jay06gixxer 08-13-2007 03:50 PM

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!

CNY750Rider 08-13-2007 03:51 PM

get your rpms up to atleast 7k. It will come up!!! Definately rider, not bike.

+1, my k6 wheelies just fine, its all about technique

KD$06 08-13-2007 05:00 PM

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

pimppapa1977 09-12-2007 02:22 PM

I have an 06 750 they are alil harder then the older ones due to the shift of the motor foward.I can power first up <<not a very good wheely guy!I just did my first second gear clutch up the other day.Get up to 4 grand ,clutch with one finger rev to about 10 and she goes.Scared the poop outta me.LMAO.Just need bigger balls.I do to.I dont wanna dump my baby!

MR DANGLES 09-12-2007 02:55 PM

Traction control maybe giving u a little prob. But it should be more then able to do it with a little work.

You slam dunked that one dude!

Xtreme Rider 09-22-2007 09:59 AM

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

I do stand up wheelies all day at like 11:00 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:laughingr

scttnga 09-22-2007 10:20 AM

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.

Usual story, "a good craftsman never blames his tools" lol :lol:

My k1 600 wheelies in 4th n 5th gear! just have to know how! :thumbup: - http://youtube.com/watch?v=C5Oz9Gghgnc

gsxr60000000 09-26-2007 03:41 PM

:laughingr 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!!

daniel Allan 09-26-2007 04:54 PM

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.

gsxr60000000 09-27-2007 01:22 PM

8k rpms. My bike is not stock however I can do it on a stock bike bc I have. My bike is -1 front tooth and i stand up at about 75mph... speed up to about 80 squat down and jerk up on the handle bars while a turn the throttle wide open. Comes up every time. If u live anywhere near TN I'll teach u

+1 all in technique :thumbup:

daniel Allan 09-27-2007 04:38 PM

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.

gsxr60000000 09-27-2007 07:13 PM

I actually can clutch it up in 4th

Bigjim8088 10-15-2007 08:18 PM

what gear are you trying in my 600 will come up in first and second with no clutch

lushbaugh 10-15-2007 08:33 PM

check your clutch it shouldnt take ANY effort to get it up. if the bike wasnt broke in properly clutchs are easy to toast:hmmm:

ralph_mesa 10-16-2007 03:39 PM

yeah u lucky! i need to buy sprockets for mine to get it up...

davisgsxr750 05-13-2013 02:54 PM

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.

Tinsnips 05-13-2013 04:13 PM

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.

davisgsxr750 05-13-2013 04:25 PM

yea I know it's an old thread, something is wrong with the bike, I'm just trying to figure out what it could be, I did start a new post with this problem

Injured 05-14-2013 05:16 AM

Did some one say there having trouble getting it up :laughingr:laughingr:laughingr

everclear1984 05-14-2013 05:27 AM

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 :D

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.
