first wheelie i ever did was on a buddies zx6, did a 2nd gear clutch up wheelie, i have a 05 katana...and thought it wouldnt wheelie..with enough practice, and understanding of YOUR bike, you will get the hang of it. if i can get a STOCK katana 600 to come up..you can get any bike up. i got the kat up HIGH too....high enough to balance point, but it wont power up, only clutch up in first, so i havent been able to hold it at bp yet because it comes up so fast. keep practicing, and BE CAREFUL. power wheelies are ALOT smoother, i've powerd up my gixxer (in the 6 miles i've rode it since i got it) and it was cake compared to getting that 500 lb kat up. as others have said, learn sit down power wheelie in first, you have the most control that way, one day you can move to stand up 1st gear power wheelies, and then up to 2nd gear higher speed power wheelies etc.... just dont take it too fast. if it scares you, go back a step. never push forward until you're as comfortable in a wheelie as you are down on two. i have done one stand up on the kat, and it came up so fast and so far i almost had to go home and change my shorts.
