All you need is Huevos (balls)

There is actually two common ways (three if you count nonintentional wheelies)

Power wheelies- Basically if you are in first gear you twist your wrist like Speedy said and it should come up a little. But since you have th 06 600 and i have the 07 600 this method didn't work for me. And like parkone said this method would go better with a 1000 or even a 750.

(the down side to this way is that you tend to be gowing very fast when you open the throttle and you don't have much control.)


Since we have the 600 we need a little help. And this is where the clutch comes in. Holding in the clutch @ 15 mph, sit back in your seat (as you don't want your weight in the front of the bike) open your throttle about three quarters with the clutch still in until your RPMs are within the 6k-10k
and then release the clutch (this should be quick one step after the other). This method is basically giving your rear wheel a sudden amount of power sending your front wheel up.

Important: Keep your foot on the rear brake for emergencies in case you can't bring the front down. close the throttle or gently press the rear brake. The rear brake will come into play when you begin Balance Point (later)

This might help you a little.

Yall sooo mean. But honestly you need to know your bike well enough to know when you give it some kick. I usually do power wheelies first before you go into clutch wheelies. I saw around 5-6k rms, let off the gas and then twist like half way and it should come up. That is how i learned.

some tips:

Take it slow, open your throttle little by little, more and more each time.

You can even adjust your idle to about 3k RPMs so you don't have to work so much when opening the throttle.


TAKE IT SLOW

i can do a power wheelie with my 05 600....

you have to give the bike a little gas to build up the power.... close the thottle for a half second (while in ur power band) and hit it....

be careful that you dont get a hand full of thottle or you wont be able to cut the thottle when u get high enough...

and ALWAYS HAVE YOUR FOOT OVER THE BACK BRAKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
