Be careful though. Popping wheelies can be expensive in the long run......

or...it would be cheaper to get a front sprocket and go one tooth down...dont have to worry the chain and one tooth in the front is about 3 teeth in the back

quoted for truth.

im not against whoolies, just keep in mind you may go through tires faster, you may be replacing clutches more often(can get expensive fast), and who knows what else. whoolies do on all kinds of stuff from forks to guages and electronics, bulbs, and whatnot, and there is always the $ of the "big oops" when you do an awesome 180 faceplant instead of just landing your whoolie all nice and easy.

practice, practice, practice. does the rear tire spin? if so feather the clutch more, or just bounce it up.

Just change the gearing, 1down 5up is a good gearing for street, and you wont have any problems at all popping it up then.
