I am also in the beginning stages of learning to wheeling and like you was having the same trouble getting the front up in second on my 05 zx6r. The issue is you cant be afraid to chop the trottle hard when you clutch. Especially if your running stock gearing. Your really gotta mash it. Usually the pit of your stumach tells you not to give it as much as it needs but you gotta bit your tounge and give it. If it come up too quick on you just be ready to hit that brake and ease on the throttle. Just dont cut it completely otherwise ull slam down hard destroy your fork seals and ur dick lol. Good luck.

I would suggest powering them up in 1st until you can start to chase them. Also power up in 2nd over a rise and learn to get used to the sensation before you start trying to learn to clutch. And whoever said measure your progress in days not hours is right. You have to train the survival instinct in your head to trust. The good news is that the whole process is fun. You'll start chasing some for longer distances and start bragging and feeling good and then later you'll look back and say that's not a wheelie. I'm on an 05 636 and was on an 07 R6 before and both would wheelie with stock gearing into 4th with my big 6'4" 190lb ass on them. You shouldn't have a power issue on yours it's a head issue that takes time.

I don't want to change the gearing , because the bike can do it the way it , i just want to know how to shift my weight to the back , or if there is anything i'm doing wrong..

Thanks, i keep loosing traction , so that's what i'm looking to stop

& thanks for everyone's feedback , good or bad since you took the time to answer lol

Ride safe, i guess i'm stubborn when it comes to wheelies
You are probably losing traction because your rear tire isn't warmed up enough for it. Also, stunters usually lower the pressure in the rear tire quite a bit for riding wheelies. It makes it easier to balance.

a lot of it depends on your speed. I have an 05 and different gearing. I went 2 up in the rear and one down in the front and before I had done that my sweet spot in second was about 47mph. down its 53mph and I can get it up every time. the holding it will just come with being comfortable. It took me about 3 months of non stop practice to hold my balance point every time
