Re: wheelies on a gsxr 1000

Its all technique and body position. I can get mine up at 3k rpms or 12k rpm's and so can you. Just keep practicing, there is no set speed or rpm needed.

Re: wheelies on a gsxr 1000

Shouldnt need to use clutch in 2nd.....that thing's got way too much power. Try just getting it around 55 mph or so and quickly close the throttle to compress the front forks and give her a nice chunk of throttle--- she should come straight up! Dont know what model year 1k you have just be careful... even in 2nd she is pretty violent on the K6.

Save your clutch.

It should come up pretty easy round 55-60 in 2nd gear. I can get mine up in 2nd gear bout 25mph pretty easy. It just takes practice. Thats using the clutch.

Of course you dont NEED to use the clutch. Only that using it actually will actually allow you to control the power easier, and be much more consistant pulling it up. Keep practicing your clutching.

Control the power easier??? Throttle control applies to either, but I would think clutching would be very dangerous at the wrong RPM to release as a beginner to wheelies with 150+ ponies on tap. We're not talking about a 600 here. I know how to clutch up a wheelie and have done it may times on my previous 750. With clutching there are so many more variables involved to be consistent so you make no sense brother. How is that easier to achieve consistency???

OP: do what ever is most comfortable for you....my point if you want to wheelie a GSXR 1000 in second the simplest way without risk in LOOPING and causing unnecesary wear on a liter-bike is grabbing the right amount of throttle around 50-55 mph it without the clutch. Practice makes perfect, so good luck.

Re: wheelies on a gsxr 1000

^ Im not great at explaining things, and i certainly dont want to confuse the OP. That said the next time your at a stunt show, or see a lot full of guys ask them if they power wheelie, or clutch it. I would be willing to bet they can explain it real good. I also feel that if you cant handle the extra work of slipping a clutch to wheelie, as opposed to just smashing the throttle, you prolly should not be doin wheelies anyhow.

Why clutching wheelies is the best method for launching wheelies
Clutching is by far the best way to get wheelies up, regardless of whether the bike has enough power to power it up. While it does wear out clutch plates a little faster than normal, the difference is not significant. I also have never read about any major problems as the result of the extra tension on the drive train. There are many advantages to clutching wheelies vs. powering wheelies. 1. It allows you to wheelie bikes that donít have enough power to power it up. 2. You can wheelie at lower rpmís, and therefore slower speeds. This allows beginners to keep a wheelie up longer, with out being at the balance point. 3. The launch is more predictable. When powering a wheelie up, the front end comes up relatively slow. Then when the front end is about 3 feet off the ground, the front end jumps up very fast under full throttle, making for a scary and unpredictable launch. When clutching up wheelies right, the front jumps up close to the balance point. From there you just play with the throttle to fine adjust the height. After a little practice, clutching becomes very predictable and not frightening at all. 4. All of the pros that I know of clutch every wheelie. You want to be like them donít you

I see what you are saying, and why you are saying it. An that's fine.


But I can tell by some of your answers that you are not very skilled, which isn't your fault to not fully understand why "we" say to clutch.

It will come...

+1

my comments are "funny". i think its funny that you claim to be able to clutch it, but say powers are more comfortable. learn to use the clutch my friend. i am a kid, i'm 20. i'm no stunter but i can wheelie and hit bp and do some variations, guaranteed more than you can.

i'm not turning it into a hate thread, not even trying to hate on you, just saying
