getting it up

i have an 06 R6 raven, my bike has the stock 16-45 gearing and is tall as hell, i can get the front up by clutching in 1st, and on a blue moon 2nd, if you twist hard enough, it'll power wheelie in first, so whats the deal, i race an R1 thats a wheelie MACHINE, and i just sold an 03 a gixxer 600 allstarr (that mabey i should've kept) that was abosolutly sick, and i had high hopes when i bought my 06 brand new, and now and it just dosn't have the tourqe, my next move will probly be a drop tooth in front and up 3 in the rear, it has a full graves exhaust, and PC3 USB, BMC filter, and a fender emliminater (not that any of that matters) what about lighter wheels, or mabey some taller cams, or a racing piston kit, what do you guys recomend

You just have to clutch it "hard" as in more throttle and longer clutch slip, it is hard to get up in second unless your on it hard with the clutch. Mine barley powerwheelies in 1st with just the throttle, i mean BARLEY just floats like 6 inches off the ground.


WOT is more than just a throttle position, it's a LIFESTYLE

IF you change out the gearing that will solve the whole problem.

Do you have any dead spots in the throttle? May want to check the PCIII map.

I have a friend with an 06 R6 and it didnt fix the whole problem...Maybe it has something to do with the altitude.

R6's are designed to not let the front come up because if your wheelieing your not accelerating as fast as you could be.

my buddy has a 05, i rode it a few times, mainly just did slow first gear stuff but, crackedc a cpl 2nd gear wheelies down the highway. Came right up for me stock gearing. Only rode one other R6 other than that one and it was a 01 i think, so dont really have much experience w/ them. I know that 05 snapped right up to balance point on command for me. Sure wasnt smooth power like the f4i though lol. Pick up a cpl teeth in the rear you'll have no problems and if you just go a cpl teeth you can prob. keep your stock chain. or drop a tooth in the front.

My '05 R6 comes right up in first, I don't even have to snap it hard. I'v read alot and the '06 seems to have less power on it. Unless you got the R6s which is still the same as the '05. There was an article in a mag last month, I think it was "super street", and they did mods on the r6 for a few different models.

thanks guys, the gearing kit is on the way, i let you know how it turns out, i disagree with the computer deciding the power theory though, thats what the PC3 was bought for, i know i know before anyone crits me the ECU does have alot to do with power probly 40 or 50% of it, but the motor is only going to make as much power as it was designed to make, yeah the ECU limits fuel, air, and power and torque curve, yeah the bike would saw it's self in half without the ECU to help it, physically alot of the sportbikes are dfferent but they attempt the same goal, so the power and feel of the bike in my opion is 90% rider 10% bike, when my brother rode my R6 after riding his 03 600RR he was blown away by the difference (not converted though, he bleeds honda lol) while the difference is there physically, 2 riders 1 on a yami and another on a honda, they may both feel like they have 190RWHP on tap, even though they are different on paper, power is best felt, not produced on paper, i belive the ECU is more of direction than limitation, and if you want to control that then DING buy a PC3, the little black box is ur friend not ur enemey at least in my opion
