the way i learned on a 1000 took me one day take your time step by step dont try clutchin it up yet till you get the feel of what its like to raise it up ive been riding for two years and i just learned how to wheelie the first thing i did was when your at a stop start off in 1st stay in this gear in between 30 and 40 mph once you reach this speed it will feel like you need to switch gears but dont now just give your bike a little more throttle and you will feel it raise up a little start off giving it a little throttle and it will come up only a couple inches and once you get comfortable with it try giving it a little more each time you practice just relax dont panic and practice i have only been doing it for a month and have never fallen learning with this method and the only way i learned was by accident i was on a 1000 and i was taking off on green and when i got on the gas it raised up a little like half a foot when i felt the front tire hit i was like oh i just did a mini wheelie so the whole way home i was crankin the throttle making it raise up

I wouldn't learn wheelies in 1st gear on a 1000......thats suicide. too twitchy.

I'd roll into them in 2nd. more stability.

They are right about not really trying it in frist gear. I used to do it in first on my buddies gixxer 1000 but I cover the back brake plenty out of habbit with the phifty. Really just roll in to it when your going you can sometimes roll the throttle and it will come up. If not you can bounce the bike up, all you do is chop the throttle to make it lift and as the bike drops down roll on to the gass and it will bounce it self up. The trick is when you have it drop down from the first chop when it feel like it is all the way down and the shocks are rebounding it back up is when you gas it up. try that is second gear to get a feel for it and try it in a parking lot or on a road that no one goes down. you will get the feeling of it start to lift up and just keep trying to get the front to come up higher and soon you can figure out the ballance point and hold it longer and longer. Don't forget to cover back break if it seems to come back to far for you and it will bring the front end of the bike down. Oh forgot to mention let the bike be close to 3k rpms if not a bit higher to start to get the power of the motor so it will let you bring the bike up.

I am defiantly no stunter, but I enjoy reading and learning how. The R1 has slipper clutch, so I am guessing that make a power wheelie really hard to do. That is what the slipper clutch is designed to do anyway. What can do on bikes that have these slipper clutches??

Just my opinion..

If you do not know how to ride a wheelie, and you try to learn in first gear, on a 1k, you more than likely, eventually loop it.

I learned on a 50.
Clutch the R6 up, in 2nd.
Power the 1k up in 2nd.

I suck, but I never clutch the 1k up cuz it is my baby and I dont want to wreck it. I just power it up, in 2nd, at about 7k rpm and cover the outta my rear brake.

I am sure some real stunters will chime in soon. At least some that know what they r doing.

Ain't all this clutchin bad for the bike's gears?
And can't setting it back down too hard too many times be bad for the front suspension and steering?

thats not how a slipper clutch works it helps the rear wheel from hooping when attemting to back in the motorcycle. nothing to do at all with take off. it actually hurts a takeoff and makes the clutch weeker.
