I had a 00 6R and I could loft the front wheel by the throttle method..I just bought a RR (still breaking it in):(...My question is...How hard is it to wheelie on a RR since it has less HP than the R[?]

I've wheelied both. The RR model is actually a good bike for me to wheelie, but the difference is you've got to get it revving more. The R's increased grunt means you can chop it up around 7k rpm (at my weight) in first, where the RR I found I had to get it revving up to around 9-10k rpm to "hiccup" the front end up. But the advantage is that the RR is smoother to wheelie and less prone to over-lofting the front end. I never use the clutch to wheelie.

i have a 03 rr and i like to clutch it up, it comes up really smoothly for me it seems more consistant i feel like i have less control when i power them up. i ride to about 4-5 then rev it to 10.
