|skillfactor||I started practicing in a vacant school lot yesterday on a suzuki b king. i dont have access to anything smaller. I had no problem clutching in to get the front wheel up.. about a foot lol. It seems my best results came from clutching in at about 5krpms in first gear and then reving up high (like 10k rpms) and dropping the clutch .. BUT just to make sure im clear on this.. do i roll on the throttle after dropping the clutch? I defenitely feel my peanuts on the seat and let off a little.. which is probably why it doesnt keeping coming up. The bike is so fast i feel like ill loop it at 40 mph. ouch|

Is this topic still up?
I hope so ...
I'm riding (started in nov. 2010) a stock 2001 CBR600 F4i. It has about 38.000 km on it (that's about 23500 miles, ~1850 made by me). As far as i know, there weren't any jobs made to the clutch.
My problem is that i find it VERY HARD to play with the clutch and i'm not a slim guy (i'm ~ 6' hight and i weight ~195 pounds).
My "pow pow"s (in first gear), as you call them, are getting there (off the ground but nowhere near BP ) )...
After let's say half an hour of clutching chaseing a wheelie in second gear i barely can ghange the gears hading home.
Is there a problem with my finger, with my clutch or is there a way to make it work easyer?
My left pointer finger (wich i'm using for dumping/slipping/pumping/whatever the clutch) starts hurting like hell but the problem is that because of the finger problem i can't practice in order to start feeling the right amount of speed/clutch/throtle for the second gear clutch wheelies...
What are your advices?
Thanks in advance, i would really apreciate any kind of help!

Sprockets also help (bigger in the back, smaller in the front) but then you might need to get a bigger chain to compensate.

|raiderfan94536||is it better to dump the clutch? or let it out like a first gear take off? when I've tried letting the clutch out is much smoother than dumping the clutch, but which is better?|

I was doing pow pows (what your friend is probably doing) and then learned clutch ups. Haven't done a pow-pow since.

Re: Wheelie On YZF600R
thx kninja, its wintertime in PA right now so i gotta wait a few months for riding weather. i do need a bit more riding time, but im just excited to try a wheelie. my next question would be, whats better? power wheelies or clutching wheelies? a buddy of mine at work has been riding for 10 years, he doesn't stunt much, but does power wheelies. however, ive noticed he cant ride them, just pops the front tire for a bit before it sets back down. is clutching better for riding a wheelie?

Wheelie On YZF600R
You have a solid bike, its not too hard to bring it up in first gear. If you are really new to riding I will get some more seat time first to be safe. To bring up your bike, on a standing bike play with the throttle and look at the rpm, this would help you later not to loop. Start off in first gear get the bike rolling good and snap the throttle to about 6K bike should come up a bit. keep doing that till you stop jerking the bike and reach 6k smoothly. You will notice the bike jumping up easy, now you can give it a little more rpm but go up in 1k increments to practice.
I have had this bike up without a problem several time but now I clutch it, I use to only power wheelie. Its all nothing but practice keep trying if this doesn't work post again and I will put in some more details.

I'm a newb to riding, just got my '07 YZF600R in May of '09. Bought it off a buddy of mine who says he's wheelied it in 1st, no problem. I've never wheelied anything bigger than my old Dyno, and I know a crash cage is pretty pricey, so how 'bout a wheelie bar? Would that be a cheaper but still safe alternative?

|usmarine1215||my R1 has a lot of torque in first gear. my wheelies are usually in 2nd gear if im doing power wheelies. if im doing clutch wheelies then it doesnt matter usually what gear|

|Tha_Dank1||What about shift down throttle up wheelies? I go about 20-25mph in secong gear, then shift down to first, a little stutter from engine braking and I know the front will lift once I throttle up? Ever heard of this before? Works well for me but right now I'm trying to ride em out. Is that bad for the engine?|

|raiderfan94536||one thing i can suggest about your back tire spinning, which maybe why you aren't getting it up, is to lower the PSI...and make sure your tires are warmed up|
