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...Originally posted by Skelatorr
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?

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.
Darkdan...comfortable enough with his manhood to ride a 600.
Better midrange and sharper fork angle allow the 636 to get up, just like the CBR, R6.Originally posted by acarter
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.
