yes it hurts the clutch but it takes a while for it to wear out. Once in a while will not hurt it.

I'm afraid to try a clutch wheelie cause I think I'm gonna fuck somethin up... I mean, a clutch wheelie is pretty much the only way to wheelie a 250 bwahahah

New clutches are relatively inexpensive, and the fun you will have doing wheelies outweighs the costs of a new clutch IMO

clutches are surprisingly strong and long lasting, i would never worry about them. also, it's very easy and inexpensive to replace a clutch on a bike, as opposed to a car, mainly due to size of course.

i've heard that clutching up gsxr's can be hard on them. something about the clutch baskets breaking after a bit of abuse. thats why I got the 1000, I just use the throttle
