Nice piece, I've successfully pulled off one clutch in 1st wheelie going up a slight grade. I can't seem to get the clutch wheelie to work anymore. So then I figured out how to pop it up by doing about +-15mph, letting the RPM's hit about 5-6k, rolling off then on real quick. I am anxious to try your methods here to see if they work. I just need to figure out where that power band is, sit back a touch and just let 'er rip. The one thing that killed me when reading your post is, what the heck is &amp? I feel stupid asking that as it clearly shows the squiddy in me LOL

I can't get my L1 750 to come up much by just twisting the throttle. I sit upright and I've tried it between 5k & 6500, slamming the throttle all the way back, it comes up a little but not enough.

I can easily get my 750 to jump up in first...i sit around the same RPM as you, but i back off the throttle a little and then wap it...hell if i slip second and blip the throttle i can get the front to float that way...these are all sitting down...but i really dont like doing first gear power wheelies, im working on keeping second gear consistent, and i ordered a 16 tooth vortex steel front sprocket to help me out, and help it be a little more consistent what i really want are stand ups in second....but im a pussaaayyy at the moment when it comes to stand ups haha

great post when i get my SRAD 600 back up to spec ill give that a try. seems like the only time i can ever get it up is on the clutch hard in 1st gear....its scary all the way to the top and i havent mastered the balancing side to side yet so all i ever see is tank and gauges until i set it down....

Hey guys, this is my first post ever to this forum. I have a 2012 GSXR600 (all stock, except for a K&N air filter). I have been working on my power and clutch wheelies for a couple months now. I'm getting really frustrated because some days I have a lot of trouble getting the front up when powerin it up and others days not so much. All I want to do is be able to wheelie it consistently. Any advice would be much appreciated it. Also if anyone wants to PM me with advice I'd be glad to listen.

Also anyone have ideas how I can link up with some advanced stunters in the Charlotte, NC area? Thanks....hope I didn't post this in the wrong area.

I do have to say that my 2004 gixxer 600 was the best wheelie machine I've ever ridden. Easy to bring it up, easy to keep it up. And the only machine that I've owned that would readily bring the front wheel up in 3rd at ~80mph... With some clutch, of course. Definitely NOT recommending that anyone who is not extremely in tune with their bike try an 80mph 3rd gear clutch wheelie, but they will do it. Haven't tried anything on my most recent bike... This bike is the first bike I've had in 6 years and I haven't been on it enough to get my confidence back.

Thanks for the write up. I am killing the popcorn wheelies now.

I have a 2003 GSXR 750 and first doesn't seem to be an issue with the power wheelie. I normally get it to about 5-6K back off then hit the throttle and it comes right up. My issue is the control after that. I know first gear is jerky so I just need more practice. I also notice that once the wheel comes off the ground my natural body reaction is to lean forward into the wheelie which does help me hold it. I am sure practice will make perfect.

I tried a few clutch ups just to give it a whirl and so far I suck at them. I watched a few videos and it looks like you guys blimp the throttle and clutch together? I am still trying to get that down but maybe ill stick to the popcorns for now.

One of my winter projects will be -1/+2 which I am sure will help next season. Not doing it just for wheelies but for more low end torque. No need to go 150MPH on the street anyway.

For some reason maybe being I am 9 over in the rear I cant pull the front tire off the ground on my 750 lol. On a serious note this is a great write up I wish I would have seen this in 2001 when I got my first street bike it would have helped I will say this is how I learned on my own.

I bought a gsxr 600 2010 few weeks ago and it has 5000 km on the clock i tried to do bit of wheelie but when i tried my rear tyre skidded rather then front coming up ? Does my rear tyre needs replacement or I am doing some mistake in wheelie I was doing 2nd gear clutching ..

Using this technique I have started my journey towards awesomeness. I think I will stop at 2nd gear wheelies though, YouTube is flooded with high speed wheelies ending in a tank slapper and a lengthy flesh removing bone jarring tar-nap. I know 2nd gear is still moving but if I can manage the balance point I can keep my speed down.

Every sunny day is a chance for practice...

This has also happened to me. Make sure your rear tyre is up to temp, about 5-10 mins of riding-more on a cold day, and that it is a good grippy surface. Stay off the middle of the lane at the lights, shitboxes leave there fluids there waiting for the green, and it can stay on your tyre for a surprisingly long time.
