Be careful when you power wheelie it you could flip it use the clutch and always cove your rear brake at all times.

sometimes i power wheelie in 1st if i'm not really planning on riding it out. normally next girls at a light lol. when i want to ride them or try riding them i put it in second go about 45-55 pull in the clutch rev really fast and let the clutch go really fast. just pop the clutch and rev. don't hold it wide open, maybe 3/4 and push it a little farther each time until you feel the balance point. and you will know when its at balance point and it seems really far back when your first practicing. lots of practice on good secluded roads.

I suggest that you keep both wheels on the ground hard enough to keep the bike balanced on 2 wheels let alone 1 wheel

I've only ever ridden power wheelies - regretfully.

I say this not from personal experience, but because I know it to be solid advice that no one here has given yet.

Clutch it up.

I feel that my wheelies are limited SOLELY by the fact that I power 'em up. By the time you get to BP you're so high in the rev range that you're going too fast. Feels like 'chasing' the wheelie.
I can still ride them for a pretty good ways, but I know that if I could clutch them to balance point that they could be ridden as long as the road would allow.

Problem I have practicing is that the 750 that I'm riding right now isn't mine, so I can't afford to dump it, and even when I practice conservatively all I can manage to do is spin the back up when using the clutch.

Power wheelies are easy and fun for short wheelies, but if you want to ride it out, you need to learn clutch.

Go ask this question on Stuntlife and see what answers you get.

but seriously. we met a few times before dude, i think you should give you sum more time to ride and get to know your bike. I do clutch on First and second and they pop up quick. I've been trying power and them just feel a lot smooooooooooooother! start of with clutch.


GIVE THA HOE SUM GAS MUGGGGGGGGGGGGG!

clutch it up. if you ever power wheelie near balance point you'll probably flip right over and eat some pavement.

when you are clutching....don't do everything step by step.....everything has to be done at once. while in second gear (best gear to learn in)....go about 30mph.....grab the clutch and give it a little more gas, let go at about 9-10k rpm (it's better to listen for it, then look for it)....now let go of the clutch and your front wheel should be up in the air. keep practicing....you'll get it sooner or later. just remember to keep your right foot hovering over the rear brake....if you feel it come up way too far.....tap the rear brake.


power wheelies will get you in trouble if you don't know what to expect. clutching is more predictable.

smoother?....have you gotten anywhere near balance point on power up?.....it's definately not smooth, the closer the wheel gets to balance point it will near flip you if you don't know how to use that rear brake and let off....which is why a lot of people flip their wheelies when powering up.

+1 2nd gear is best one to learn on

here's a power wheelie gone wrong. which is why you should learn to clutch it. yes the 1000rr has enough power to power up....but learn the right way, it's the best way also.
