so im really having a hard time with getting my bike up...04 600

1. when i power it up in 1st. it comes up but it seems like i run out of power...am i really supposed to crack it, let off to preload the suspension, and hold it at WOT to bring it up?

2. if i try what i stated above, but the time im done and ready to crack the throttle for the last time, im already going faster than I'd like to be around 55mph.

3. is there any easy way to clutch it up? it seems that it would be way easier to learn that first...no? ive watched every "how to" vid i can get my hands on, and it seems when i try to slip the clutch all my bike does is kinda jerk and dosent come up. and it also dosent feel too healthy on my bike i can tell that.

any help before i end up trashing my bike? lol

ps. sorry i knowwwwwwwwww that all the newbs post "how do i wheelie" all on this forum... im kinda at the end of my rope here... so dont be pissed and i dont really care to hear your stupid comments. thank you :bounce

its all about timing. Follow these directions then it WILL come up. Take your RPM up to 6000, once you reach it, pull in the clutch and give it gas all at the same time. The first time you do it it will pop up. You will most likely get scared then set it back down. You will eventually get used to it doing that. After you get past that scared stage just stay on the throttle. good luck. Remember, a nice bike that you cant do wheelies on is always better than a bike that you wrecked doing wheelies.

"pull in the clutch" and let it out when? right away (pop it?) or hold in the clutch for a few seconds..excuse my lack of knowledge...

pop it, as soon as you pull it in pop it back out. But while you are doing that, you give a quick twist of the throttle. Remember to use only one or two finger for the cluth so that you can still hold onto the grip.

ha ha yeah its a joke some dick head made an ass of himself on stuntlife. but just blip the clutch in enough so you hear your shit rev up like its in nuetral and let it out fast but smooth. i only use my pointer finger to pull it in and leave the rest of my hand on my bar. keep trying it. it will be frusterating until you get it. but once you get the timing of slipping and giving it some gas youll be more and more efficient. . and keep the rear break covered :thumbup:

ITs all about timing man! roll about 2nd gear bout 40mph and just kinda dump your clutch while givin gas and pullin up all at the same time. If your still havin problems try -1 +2 sprocket change. then i know you will wheeling. i could do it and get to balance point with no clutch just straight power! :thumbup:

it was hard for me to slip the clutch at first too. What did it for me was getting used to slipping the clutch while having my left leg on the passenger foot peg and covering the break like normal. It keeps most of your weight to the rear of the bike and it will come up a lot easier than if u were doing sit downs.

yeah i just noticed that myself, im so worried about covering the brake just incase something happens, that im not focused on getting the front end up...blahh practice practice practice



and how will i know when the front end is up high enough to actually ride it out?? is there some sort of balance point? ive managed to power/clutch it up pretty high...well it feels high to me...but i dont want to take it too far. will i feel any sort of balance point? or do i just have to keep going further and further until i find out for myself.?

I'm no stunter, but my best recommendation is borrow a mountain bike and learn to wheelie.

I'm being serious, not busting your chops. You wheelie a mountain bike, you'll feel that balance point you're looking for. It's the same feeling on a streetbike. It's like this magical sweet spot where you no longer need effort to keep the bike that way, it just glides there. It's really a beautiful feeling.

That beautiful feeling is amplified according to weight. IE, it's cool on a mountain bike, great on a dirt-bike, and pure bliss on a gsxr!

However, it's like sex. While you're fumbling around looking for that sweet spot, some accidents might be expected. :lol:
