Ok here we go: I have been trying to get my bike up on 2 gear and just cannot do so. I usally going at a speed of like 30 mph and my rpm's are at the power point where if I crack it i jerk my body and the the bike just jumps a little bit. At that point I pull in the clutch while still gassing the bike and then release the clutch. The bike will do either two things: it will just sound like i'm beating the flames out of the bike or the front end will go up like maybe 1 foot or so. I want the bike to go up and for me to take off. I have a stock 01 ZX6R with a yoshi slip on. Is it possible to do theses wheelies without any real work done to the bike?? help me!!

are you getting it to 30 and then holding the throttle steady and clutching?? remember, it's not necessarily the speed/rpm's you are at when you are clutching up, but rather the rate at which the speed/rpm's are climbing as your releasing the clutch. you don't want to just rev to a certain point and then pop the clutch or you will get that mad jerky feeling. once you practice a little, wheelies should be very smooth. try and pull in the clutch while the bike is still gaining power, then release it as the rpms are rising steadily. the bike will want to gradually pull up for you. hope this helps you some.

This is what one guy told me last year...

Your ZX6R will come up no problem in 1st or 2nd gear. The wheelie movie on our site is me doing a second gear clutch wheelie. Just shift into second normally, open throttle all the way, "roll on" when the tach hits about 4500-5000 pull in the clutch all the way and let it out fast. Make sure you hold the throttle wide open. Be careful though, the bike will come up and over fast! If you let off to soon it won’t stay up. Just keep practicing and try not to wreck your bike.

Well doesn't sound like detailed advice to me, I can't wheelie for squat but haven't been practicing either, Its all about feel, also check to make sure how your positioned?, are you covering that rear brake? are you depressing it when concentrating on wheeling it up? Look at every detail. Its different for everyone.
