So after knowing how to do power wheelies on my SV1000 I decided to devote my easter sunday morning to practice doing some on my gsxr. As a long time rider of vtwins, I've always had the torque to be able to pop em up without clutch and I was too scared to try it with because of the monstrous torque that bike has.

So anyways, found myself a nice big parking lot and just practiced getting an inch or two then come back down. When it was time to try to go bigger I started off in 2nd gear at about 30 mph and just "flicked" the clutch. Still only 2 inch wheelies so I decided to try in first.

30mph, gave it 3/4 throttle, flicked the clutch...YAY WHEELIE! rode it for about 3 seconds then tapped the rear brake and down she came nice and gentle.

That was probably the biggest rush i've ever had. Went out and did some twisties later that day with some friends :)

Just felt like sharing :arsenal

awsome and keep praticing then you can start going through the gears from 1st into a very quick shift in to 2nd then in to a high rpm 3rd gear quick shift on the rear wheel,look down at clocks and you should be pulling 145 plus mph wheelies,now thats a real thrill....:thumbup:

i so want to learn but am scared to loop her out. i can get it up in first with power but it feels a lil sketchy. congratz and be safe
oh yea its pretty scary at first but you dont need to bring the clutch allll the way down to do it. I practiced for a while at 50% throttle and only pulling the clutch in about 1/2" or JUST enough to disengage the clutch with using only two fingers. Thats all you ever need to do with the clutch, the rest is just throttle application

yea i tried with my k4 1000 and its really snappy. ive gotten it up high enough but decided it wasnt worth me dumpin or me smashin my nutz againt my tank again so ive givin up on wheelies and only do them at the drag strip when im launchin and when i go to 1st to 2nd and a little one when i shift 2nd into 3rd.

brief,.....get her above 45 degrees and then shift right to 2nd. If she stays up, you're golden. If not try a little higher, or use more speed (will give you higher revs in 2nd). 1st gear is NOT where you want to ride.

Dont they do wheelie school in the usa..???? they do them here in the uk and knee down schools..???
yeah i know of one in sacramento that charges like 50 bucks.. he doesn't supply a stunt bike and we have to use our own.. he rides a 6007501000 and that's why he can do wheelies.. i can't.. i tried doing it without gloves for better throttle but it seems sketchy to me..

so we do have wheelie schools here, but they're too good for us..

This is my second season on the bike so don't jump on me for the question, but on a 600, from the light if you twist the throttle all the way will the front end come up? I mean without popping the clutch?

But how fast do you need to be going to get it up?
well you said from the light earlier. i was expecting from a stop. i don't think you can power up a 600 unless you yank that B back as far as you can and let it loose! even then...... :hmmm: but idk, im basing my info off my 750. so i could be wrong, or not as good a rider. lol

Yes... You can power it up on a 600 and a bone stock one it that.
Its not the speed its the torque and it will start gettin light jst before the power band hits and snap its up and still comming till you realize that your doin 70 screemin the bike and its still on its way up and you panic and tap the brake and let off the throttle and then it comes down SMACK until you learn throttle control to set it down soft....
But yes you can do it on a 600 my 01 can anyway....but like already said 1st really is not the one one wants to be in 2nd is...

Once you learn how to do it, its not very hard on your clutch at all. i have an 06 and ive been doing clutch ups for years, and the clutch works great. the clutch on bikes isnt hard to repair either, if it makes you feel a little better.

just stick with it, and youll get so fast that youll hardly slip the clutch.
