Well everybody I'm wanting to know if anyone can send me detailed info on how to do clutch wheelies on the 6R. Of course I know how they're done but I'm wanting to know things how how many rpms should I get it up to and the definition of "dumping" the clutch. Does that mean just letting the clutch go or realising the clutch rapidly but not letting it all the way out? I want to start off small so please don't send me anything thats gonna put me at 12'oclock instantly:) Your help is greatly appreciated.

its somewhat similar to just doing straight gas wheelies... rev to about 6 thousand rpm. pull clutch and rev to 8rpm and just release the clutch quickly... make sure you practice just popping them up first so you can get a feel of how much gas will bring your wheel up...

when you pull the clutch and rev to 8rpm, it is a pretty quick motion...about 1 sec. (its similar to just gassing it because when you just use gas u are quickly twisting the gas on like you were clutching it).

I think clutch wheelies in first gear are not needed tho. it is definitely easier to bring it up, but just using gas is good enough, plus you can hold onto the handlbars more securely if you dont worry about pulling the clutch. the 6r has enuff power to bring the wheel up with just gas. Make sure your moving at around 25 mph too, its too easy to loop the bike especially with the instant catch of a clutch wheelie.

Try doing it at my house, 8300'. Clutch IS required, but it's prob more like SL doing it in second. Even with lower gears, it's still a pain.
