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

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.

: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!!

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'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.
