if you accelrate as hard as you can in first gear, you'll have to try and keep it from wheelieing.

I wouldn't even [B]try[B]to wheelie it. I would just practice going from like 10mph in 1st to full throttle, over and over. Each time you do this you'll get faster and faster with application of throttle and eventually you'll be able to do it fast enough to bring the front up under acceleration. There's not really any point in trying to ride a wheelie if you don't have basic throttle control down. just my .02.

sounds like your suspension is too stiff. go get it set for your weight so the weight transfers smoothly. and take cash towns advice start off sloww and get used to your new bike. and get a back protector so you can still walk after you wreck it. good luck

do you know how to power it up...see the keey is to womp on the throttle, which unloads the suspension, then rapidly closing the throttle to load the suspension, then womping on it one more time to unload it plus pop the front wheel up...i can only recomend wearing a lot of gear, being very careful, make sure you practice this very close to a hospital, if not right in front of it, and double checking that you have full coverage insurance...

Step by step...
1. start off in first gear and roll up to 5000 rpm.
2. leave elbows loose and scoot back about 2" from normal comfy riding position.
3. whack throttle approx. 1/3 turn.
4. adjust more throttle as front ends comes up, no more than 1/2 throttle.
5. The bike will never get to its balance point and the 1/2 throttle will get used up as the bike accelerates and the front end will rest back down around 65-70 mph.
6. repeat as needed.
Should yield about two and a half feet off the ground power wheelie on a stock bike.

maybe you shouldn't try to wheelie...first its the fork seals, then the bent rim, then the scraped up fairings (unless that happens first), plus theres the scraped up forearms, the bashed up helmet, maybe insurance rate increases, better off not doing it on the 1000, go buy you an 1982 GPZ750 to learn on...

learn clutch and throttle control, and make yourself faster, instead of trying to impress the chicks...

It is a liter bike. Lean back and give it some gas. It should come up. Unless you weigh about 300 pounds or something.

you need instructions on how to wheelie a 1000?? :eh:

most people have a hard time keeping the front wheel of a liter bike on the ground.
