I used to have the same urge as you do currently. It looks like a blast and probably is but in my opinion isn't worth the possible thousands of dollars in damage you can do to your bike if you mess up ONE time. I wouldn't recommend learning that because you will almost definitely wreck in the process. But that's just my personal opinion. Lol good luck to ya if you do try it out! Just wear your gear!!

I just take my wheelie control of, cruise it up to about 5000rpm in first and in one motion back it of and then wind it on. Do it slowly at first and c if u can feel the suspension rise up to it max then just keep doing it a little more each time. don't get to cocky !!! Always have foot ready for rear break if u need it. Don't worry about changing gears when starting out just hold it up till it's time to change then roll it off and put it down, when u r more confident back throttle of a little and change up into 2nd ( no clutch )
Good luck mate and be careful!!!!!!!!!!

Not recommended on a 650R anyway since it has a semi dry sump.
Doing a wheelie can starve the engine of oil and seize.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOoooooooooooooooooo

u need to learn wheelies on a Ninja 1000R with bald tires.....:whistling:
NNnnnnn...half the handle bars broke off.......:dance:
That's really the only way to learn......:thumb:
Don't forget the part about location. You must be in an area with loads of cars and or pedestrians.
