I haven't tried sitting differently, and I don't think the wind is a factor because I only pull wheelies at around 30mph, so I'm not going fast enough to put the wind into play. Something else I thought it could be is the gas tank. I'll have to see if it wobbles more with a full or empty tank, since the emptier tank would slosh side to side more, but I'm not sure that would cause it. I guess I'll just start doing more standing wheelies and quit doing sit-downs. Thanks for the input guys. I was hoping BTB pimp would have the answer, but he's nowhere to be found..........Originally posted by minytrker
On other bikes when I have had the problem changing the way I was sitting helped sometimes. Have you tried sitting differntly? The wind and road conditions also play a factor.

be careful in third gears. if you let the wobble happen to long it only gets worse. then when you go to put her down shes gonna buck like all hell. at 100 mph death is a reality. its really not worth it. im a guy who lifts alot of wieghts and ill tell you that you cant possibly stop something that strong. and telephone poles will always win the fight. work on some cornering, the rush you get from putting a knee down is better that a mile long wheelie.Originally posted by NASTYZX6R
I just started to do 3rd gear stand-ups and I'm having the same problem that you guys are having but mostly the bars just shake. I think a damper will help me out, but I have to admit that is very scary around 100mph when the bars shake. I just put it down when that happens. Do any off you clutch it up in third? And if so have you ever gone through a clutch and how often?

I had a guy with an R6 that before I tried to wheelie a 6R he would never own a kawasaki beause they are a little more work to get the front up, but he said one day he was wheelie'ing his buddies 016R and he said he LOVED it. He said he felt WAY more stable and that he could hold them forever. He's now thinking about selling his stunt R6 (which he's put in LOTS of money too) to getting an 02 or earlier 6R for stunting. He says the 03s are alot like the 6Rs with their high torque and crazy suspension.Originally posted by minytrker
Never had that on my 6r but my 954 gets like that and also R1's and r6's are like that. I think it has something to do with suspension setups.

My brother said adjust the rebound on your rear shock. Right now after you get up it's trying to extend and push the wheel back out but can't.
