I can power up 2nd gear stand-ups anywhere from 40-60 miles an hour... 60 is alot easier... But just stand up... accelerate a little, and then at the same time, let off the throttle push down on the forks... Then lean back, get on the throttle... If your around 40 miles an hour, and you don't lean back too hard... Its not gonna come up very high, or fast... But you can actually watch your front wheel come off the ground... Do the same at about 60 and if you stay on the accelerator... It'll just lift right up...

I just started learning how to clutch them up... But powering them gave me a great feel for what its like when they come up when you're standing.

Forgot to mention I'm on a 05 gixxer 600... 40-60 mph is the strongest part of the powerband... About 8-10 k rpms...

oh, and hey and to everyone wanting to learn...

...check your rear brakes!...

i got some good advice from javi...just before you wheelie, keep in mind your rear brake, have your foot ready to tap the rear in case you are about to loop it. im no where near close to being able to loop it, but i know its a good habit to start as early as now.

i havnt been using my rear much at all, even during normal riding. i realized this was because my rear pedal position was uncomfortable, so i lowered it today, now i can keep my rear brake covered and keep my ankle relaxed. then while testing it out after wards it seem my rears are a little soft. im going to put in steel braided rear brake lines, flush and bleed em, and put in new pads...until then im going to chill on the wheelies...for the most part.

My engine breaking keeps my good sides on the ground... But I'm not really ripping them very high, or hard yet... But I've been doing wheelies lately, little ones, and then killing them with the back break with a little gas so they don't slam forward, to get the hang of it.

I can't bring up anything in 3rd gear... Even slammin' it in third and then clutching the out of it while yanking back with all my weight... It won't come up more than an inch or two.

yea you should be able to clutch up a 3rd gear pretty easily on a 600 i go 3rd some times but i like 2nd becouse it puts the bike up fast and right where i need it. 3rd it will jump up but then it takes a few seconds to get up where i need it and i dont like that lol....

george hit me up tomarow playa and get the camera ready....

4th gear clutch stand ups at about 75mph. Isn't that hard if you know how to clutch.

yea but at 75 when you actually get the bike up where you need it you will be doing close to 90 or 100mph. I can clutch up no problem but i still choose 2nd becouase it gets the bike up fast and right where it needs to be i dont like getting the bike up then haveing to chase it to get it where i need it....
