Throttle Wheelie R1 04-06......NOT!

First let me give you a little history, that way my question at the end will make a little sense. My first bike was a street cruiser. EVERY bike I have owned has been either a street cruiser or dirt bike. Street cruisers: I can wheelie anything out there, 500, 750, 1500, 2000 or even a Goldwing. Dirt bikes: I have pulled wheelies 80, 125, 250. I'll take any atv out there and pull a wheelie.

Fast forward to my first experience at riding a sports bike (Ducati 750). Throttle wheelie no problem. Second experience on a sports bike, an R1 (year unknown). Throttle wheelie no problem.

Fast forward to the present. Last year I bought a 2005 R1 off of someone that had it less than a month. He has no idea what kind of mods previous owner has done to the bike.

Here's my dilemma. R1's are notorious for being able to do a throttle wheelie. I'm very pleased at how fast it will get me from point A to point B. And I could care less about doing a throttle wheelie.

I'm just EXTREMELY curious as to why it does not. I know it must have to do with some sort of mod to the bike. I just need help in identifying the possible mod so I don't inadvertently change that particular mod down the road.

I'm Hwy 6 / Bellaire area just in case any of y'all want to hook up and help me figure this thing out one day.

Send a message via AIM to houseofpaint
almost any bike can "thottle wheelie" (it's called power wheelie)

i HIGHLY DOUBT that there's a mod they did to prevent you doing a power wheelie...unless the swingarm is stretched an extra 30" or something.....i don't see how any mod can restrict you from doing a power wheelie.

something is either wrong with it, or you need to quit being a poon and nail it.

There is also no better motivation than watching someone else wheelie the out of your bike

Trust me, I'm nailing it. The front tire tends to start to leave the ground in second gear (around 13-14k rpms, 115mph and then again in 3rd gear around 13-14k rpms / 150mph).

I got a bud with an 06 R1. There is some sort of detuning/anti-wheelie stuff goin on in there. I can also say that it will come up. First, second, maybe even third. Just get a little more ham-fisted. That ought to do.

That's what I'm talkin about. Can't really explain it, but you can feel the bike holding itself back.

13-14k and at 115mph...somethings gotta be wrong. I'd definitely check the gearing. Mines comes up easily-if in 2nd- around 70mph (or 8-9k. 2 1/2 to 3 quarters of the throttle). Never tried third to be able to tell ya...
