Clutch up wheelies!!

Alright guys so I've had to do lots of stuff to get my bike back in working order. It's a zx6r 636 2005 with 43k miles . Runs decent . I have been doing power wheelies for a while but it's starting to get sketch doing them. So any advice on doing clutch ups? I know how to do them clutch blip gas then let out clutch but I seem to be having trouble . The bike somewhat tries to go up but it's very jerky/pully . So should I do them in 2nd? What about free play on the throttle lever yes no ? Stand up or sit down ? Thanks in advance !

Search this forum, there are several threads already devoted to this topic and I do not have the energy to repost all my sarcastic comments.

Here you go bro.

Everything you need to learn about wheelies.

If you can't win an argument, correct their grammar instead.

I get asked by pedestrians to do wheelies all the time. This morning there was plenty of clear open road, and I kinda felt bad that I couldn't give them a show.

I'm going to have to find that kids number to learn some tips lol . I'm not trying to learn how to do this for anyone but myself though . I've read all the forums and watched a bunch of videos . I think i just have to say f it and give it some good throttle and get over the fear .

Where do you live? If you are anywhere near "the snake" I could show you a few things. You're risking the life of your bike. As long as you know that, you're good.

Just so you're aware....

I've heard horror stories about sliders bending the frame during accidents. They're great if you drop your bike at a standstill, but if you're moving fast that could turn out bad.

I'm not sure what everyone else's opinions are of frame sliders, but they may not help at speed.

Damn hmm maybe I will have to get a cage of some sort . I was also wondering when you are riding and get ready to pull the clutch in do you pull the clutch and blip the gas so just give it gas real quick to spike the rpms then let go of the throttle . Or are you suppose to pull clutch in raise rpms and hold them to where you raise it and then drop the clutch ?

You're probably best to watch videos on teh interwebs. There are thousands of them that explain this better than can be described in text.
