GSXR 750 Wheelies ???

I have a 06 GSX-R 750. I can power up wheelies no problem, but clutching them is a problem. Ive been told I have to dump it at about 12-14,000 rpm with the brake on, but Im not that good a rider I wanna do that. Is there any way I can make my bike clutch it at lower rpm's, and what are the pros and cons.

No!!!, don't try to clutch at that high of RPM's, You'll flip it. Start small like at 5-8, it won't lift for a few inches, but you have to get used to the pull-somewhat violent if not accustomed to it. Work your way 1K more RPM's each time until the bike starts to lift up around 1 ft or more- again your just going to get familiar to the feel and the motion/technique. Eventually you will find your balance point. Use very small input to control the height and speed and always cover the rear brake. Actually you should practice to just bring up the front just a little and then use the rear brake just so you know what to do in case of too much throttle , it should become 2nd nature once you start really popping wheelies-and wear ALL you gear, please.

Flies spread diseases....so keep your closed!!!.

Ive dumped it up to 10k and it almost comes up but I was told my bike aint meant to come up because its a track bike. thats why I have to dump it so high. Like I said I can stand a power wheelie straight up just not with the clutch. Will changing sprockets help ?

stop trying for now. when you get more experience with your bike and know its power range better, you'll know where and when to pop the clutch to get the front tire up without eating your bike.

A GSXR 750 will easily come up. But I advise you build more skills before you keep attempting this. Bad things will happen. You dont wanna beat up that shiny bike.

Try clutching it up in lower RPMs, bouncing it... Raise it 1 grand each time until it comes up to your liking.

*Get familiar with your bike first.*
I recommend learning clutch ups in second gear...

Im not new to riding or wheelies. Ive tried clutching it from 8-10,000 rpm's and it doesnt even feel close to coming off the ground. Jason Britton or one of his peoples is who told me my bike has to be dumped higher than that with the back break on. On a Kawi 636 it wheelies perfect at 8k. I appreciate the help cuz I love riding wheelies and am getting frustrated with it.

8-10k RPM you dump the clutch? Your going to end up flat on your ass. Your bike should power wheelie. No need to clutch it up especially at that high of RPM.

Just to let you know on the K7-750 Redline is @ 14,250 RPM's (not 15,000 as indicated) so if you dump the clutch at the RPM's you were told to, your going to 12 0' clock it.
Sure these bike were not made to stunt with but they can- when was the last time you saw some one stunt on a crusier? or a gold wing? The best bike to stunt on is a dirt bike for sure but for a road bike the sport bikes are hands down the bikes to do it with. (In no way am I encouraging to do so- just telling fact from fiction)

There isn't really any reason to clutch up wheelies in 1st unless you have a larger rear sprocket or are trying to do really slow wheelies. You're doing something wrong when you try to clutch it in 1st. On my F4i if I clutch it between 6-8k it's coming up high as hell; and you don't need to hit the rear brake to get it to come up. Just make sure you cover the rear brake when you are in the wheelie just in case anything happens. Try revving the engine between 6-8k with the clutch in and then let go of the clutch all at once. Don't let it out gradually. Also try clutching in 2nd. I clutch in 2nd between 7-9k and it comes up no problem. Just mess around with it, practice makes perfect.

Wheelies

I have a friend with a 2006 750 stock and he can wheelie sitting or stand up. If I can I will post video, he learned off a dirtbike and showed me how to use clutch. Try 2nd gear around 30mph and lean back, it helps. Don't sit on the back brake but be ready, it comes up a little faster than if u throttle it. Throttle 1st gear to get used to it. But it can be done and for a good couple miles once you get it up. you don't need any special stuff on the bike.

Except for throttle control, technique, and skill.
