wheelies on an SV650, who does em?

I don't know why but people frquently ask me if I ride wheelies on my little SV650S, the answer is no. To be honest I've never really tried, the SV isn't exactly a high powered wheelie machine, but it got me curious as to how possible it actually is, and now I want to try it.
Oh well maybe I'm too old for that holigan behavior

My buddy can wheelie on his SV650S, but he has to squash the front springs and pull up so hard; it looks a little unorthadox. Neither of us are wheelie people btw.

do you think it makes a difference that I have stiffer springs in the front?

so what do you do, gas it, cut the throttle and then gun it again while sitting as far back as you can?

clutch it up, stay smooth on the throttle and have your foot riding the rear brake a little bit, but those bikes are monsters in first

gas it, let off the throttle....then clutch it up. sit down or standing staggered....but always covering the rear brake. even though it's a 650....these lil bastards got some crazy torque.

and yeah, i wouldn't ride mile long wheelies on these.....guess i should've mentioned that.

the torque on the twin is amazing. It will power up, but word of advice, after some time of the front in the air, the front cylinder will suffocate/die because of lack of fuel, then it will come down hard. V-twin SV not made for distance wheelies.
