so i thought it'd be fun today to try a wheelie on me 03' 636. Read some advice on here, and me and my bud were on our way to the bank. I took first to about 8k, dropped the throttle, and opened it allllll the way up. About this time i realized i hadn't opened the throttle all the way up before.

(my previous bike was a kaw super sherpa) and that 250 just needed a little clutch dropping to get up for a second or two.

So on my big mean new 636, 2/3 open goes real fast. Anyway non of anyones advice (that i read) remined me to HOLD ON FOR DEAR FOOOKIN LIFE. my wheel lifted the whole bike about jumped out from under me and my left had came off the grop. I dropped the throttle rather quickly grabbed the handle with my left hand, the bike dropped the 5 inches it had lifted, and my had was still shakin so hard i could barely fill out my bank form.

i can't wait to try it again.

i just have a question, you gotta crank it all the way open to get it up.. but should you let it down alittle once your up, or will it not flip, i flipped my sherpa once dropping the clutch, but i'm a total squid when it comes to my big mean rocket.

Yeah i felt like i was 12'n, well not quite. but thanks for the advice, i'm a skateboarder and a risk taker by nature, so i like to push things a little too hard, i figure i'll get it eventually. But i'll be sure to take it easy, and be content with lower wheelies. i just wanna fly down the road on one wheel SOOOO bad ;p but i'm off to MMI in arizona in six months or so, so i'll learn a bunch there i think.. in and out of class.

I've yet to try another one, i probably will tonight, i just gotta get comfy with the revs, i weigh in at a hefty 135lbs, so might not need to rev like some 200lb-ers so get my wheel up, anyway wish me luck.

Sweet guys.. i never got to go out and try my wheelie, but knowing of a another 'little' guy like me doin em of natural throttle is nice.. i'll just take it out and open er up... see how high i get. the thing that sucks about my town is there's not alot of roads that are long and fairly clear, i don't wanna have to drop my wheel and break all hard as hell so save my life. most the country roads are gravely as all hell...
