i was just doing 2nd gear clutch ups before b/c i thought my bike didnt have enough pwr to do a "pwr wheelie" in 1st.. ive never tried clutching it in 1st though, seems like it would be pretty violent.

i just need the feel for it since im guessing id be able to wheelie slower like you said from a 1st gear clutch, but the pop would be quicker as well. correct?

just cover the break first gear doing a power wheelie is going to be more dangerous than clutcing it up. espically if your going faster and you re in and out of the power band just keep the brake covered

did this and it came up w no problem.. :lol thought it would never do a pwr wheelie w/o clutch... thats fun. my problem was i wasn't high enough in rpm's before.

nice.
now get used to that feeling of it coming up and landing it smoothly.. try to carry it out further and further by throttle control.. always keep your rear brake covered just incase.

Once you get used to the wheel coming up and holding it and bringing it down softly then I would recommend you start messing with clutch ups..

Tip: Drop your PSI in your rear tire for more ground coverage. 15-20 PSI

the new 09 r1 with the gangsta torque looks to be a wheelie machine... :beer

yeah the r1 definitely lost some low end tq after the 01 i believe.. rode this guys 05 (i think) and i snatched it in 3rd on the hwy, but it had a hesitation before it kicked in.

if i were to do that on the 2000, it would have looped for sure. the 09 was totally re-worked wasn't it?

This is a good thread. Thanks for the helpful hints. First time I got it up, (you never forget your first time), it just popped up and surprised the shit out of me! It felt HUGE, but was really probably only about 3-6 inches. :rofl

So I taught myself on my k5 600. I do the "bounce" wheelies. So what i do is get the bike to about 5k RPM in 1st gear then while standing up release the throttle and roll back on HARD while LOADING your suspension by bouncing the bike. It comes up effortlessly. I have never crashed doing POP-A-WHeelies and I learned on back roads where no one was on. It took me about 3 hours of going back and forth but i got it and there is no stress on the clutch or the bike this way. Good luck! :badgerslayer
