Step 1: Buy a bike you don't mind dropping

Step 2: Look down and find a pair.

I'm sure whatever you're doing is right, but just not enough of it.

You don't even have to move to do a stoppie. Just have warm tires, a flat road, and no fear. Just pull in the brake until your front compresses as far down as you can go and then when you've just about stopped grab a big handful. The back will come up about 3 inches. Then work on it from there until you're comfortable.

Everyone has their own way of doing this. But everyones way is pretty much the same. RPMs are pretty much the only differences. I position myself so my butt is just about touching front of rear seat. This is to get my weight closer to rear axle to make it easier on the bike. The less weight you have over the front the easier it is for the bike. Next, I get the Rs up to 5k. The next step is pretty much one quick action. I nail the throttle (wide open), pull clutch in (slightly, just enough to keep momentum and raise the Rs up to 7 or 8k), release clutch, and the front comes up. Once the front comes up and I am near balance point I ease off throttle and only use what throttle I need to keep it there (which is something I still have not mastered). Just remember, no snatching on the bars, no bouncing, and if you clutched too much and you think you are going to loop it back off the throttle, just dont slam the front down. Always give a bit of throttle b/4 front tire hits. Quick tips; make sure you get the throttle wide open and only use 2 fingers closest to thumb for clutch. Hope this helps. If I missed something, let me know.[:p]

Yes, stay on the throttle. You want the Rs to go up, if you let off they won't. Stay on it until the front wheel gets off the ground. Most likely you won't get it all the way up the first time but as those (mouse) nuts of yours turn into (hog) nuts it will come up all the way. Slowly back off the gas to maintain your height. As far as hitting neutral goes, there is a longer throw from first to second than any of the other gears so you have to make sure you pull up hard. I believe if you miss gears continuously you could end up bending your shifting fork.

I find it's easier if you first give more throttle (not neccesarily full throttle, just a good amount) *then* quickly pull in and release the clutch while you're accelerating. I use one finger for the clutch, lets me keep a better grip on the handlebars and thus it's easier to keep it stable.

Now if I could just keep it going straight, I most often find myself close to the ditch on the right.

Ive tried this method several times(clutch), always comes up sooooo scary fastmy spine turns a slight shade of yellow I end up bringin it back down,,,, HARD
My eagerness to join the local Wheelie Gurus here does not surpass my :(Supreme Hatred[V] for Downtime if my bikes in the shop from a loop-over



Steering damper is in order as well as Frame sliders
How about back tire pressure???? Ive heard that if its a lil low will be easier to maintain balance
but how low is Low?

You a herb...lol... ain't walking wheelies for miles...but I am at least doing BLOCKS now...and find it easier to clutch it up in first then switch to second...unfortunately I don't pay attention to RPMS...so i would not be able to tell you when to do what. I do know that once u reach the balance point on ANY BIKE....it feels like the accelaration slowed down and that you might give it too much throttle...

Once u are comfy wiht the balance spot (something that I have not been yet) then u can walk that wheelie till u are tired.

I think it is easier on the 636 to wheelie on straight gas than any other 600. I go up to about 7 rpms and bring it up and shift into 2nd with ease and keep it up 4 about a block.

How fast should you let go of the clutch?
Do you pop it?

Moral of this story is....don't have one.

I'm not sure if I would call it a pop or more like a snap. But, yeah don't drag it out.

Better midrange and sharper fork angle allow the 636 to get up, just like the CBR, R6.

02 Kawisaki 6R and 9R have different fork angles and make it a little tougher. Well, thats what I think any way. I road a CBR and it seemed a lot easier than my ZX6
