I appreciate all the support and all the support goes back out to you guys.
Just don't push it to get even a small wheelie if anything seems out of place, even the mind set.
Take your time and get use to the height you are getting now. I was hitting about 9 o clock and cruising and then the bike would drop comming down @ 50 mph because I didn't give it enough gas to bring it up and hold it. I was doing that for a while and then one day not even thinking I gave it a little more gas b/c I was use to the 9/10 oclock and I hit the balance point. Never held it there and tried to ride it out but I just pop it up and then let off the gas to bring the nose down and then give it gas again so I don't get a tank slapper.
Keep up the good work, conforting knowing I am not the only guy in the forums just learing wheeling.
For those who are starting, what I have exp.
I ride a 02 gsx-r 600 -- has enough power but I need high rpm
I usually rip it open to about 7k rpm ( doing about 30-35 mph @ that time) That usually lifts my forks to their max. I close the throttle quickly and the force of the deceleration will drop the nose. As soon as the throttle closes I reopen it up quickly about 1/4-1/3 of the way and I usually spike to 11k rpm. The wheel will lift right up. No yanking on the handle bars and no throwing my weight forward and back ( which maxs me come into the lift not straight).
The whole time I am sitting in the middle of the seat. I do not have my boys up against the tank but my butt is not all the way back to the front of the passanger seat. With this spot I have found it to make it easier to get the lift then to be hugging the tank. But play with the rpm and amount of throttle.
I usually rip the throttle like I am going to race in 1st gear till I hit the powerband, once i hit it the forks lift all the way and when the throttle closes the forks collapse and when reopening the throttle in the powerband the forks bounce back up and will lift the front tire with ease.
No bounceing or weight shifting neccessary which will not through your wieght to the left or right by accident and without leaning forward then back, it will not give you a nasty jerk on your arms and crank the front tire to the side in the lift.
Hope this helps. From the neighborhood friend that is learning. I am by far not even close to being expert but from all the forums I talk to and read from stunters, They are so experienced that pulling awheelie from standing and clutching it is a cake for them. Trying to learn a wheelie with the clutch is not easy. Having my tire kick to the side on my 4 times in a row @ a slow 25 mph, keep me back with the way I explain until I get more familuar.
Any further ? about what I have experineced or little things I do to help, let me know and i will try to help but by all means I will not lead you with incorrect answers if I have not clue. I will not misslead.
But once again thanks for all your support/ input
