I'm 300lbs and had no problems with first gear power wheelies. You're not giving it gas hard enough. Lol. 2nd gear I had to go 50mph twist the throttle wot then let off and immediately back to wot and it'd rise up until I hit the limiter.

I'll give you one suggestion that will work no matter what. I got this suggestion when I was learning to wheelie on my F3 back in 2001. After multiple disappointments at trying to wheelie, my dear friend suggested that I must install some BALLS. You may want to do the same. Pop the clutch man, that's way easier, but again it depends on person to person. Power wheelie... 1st gear, 9000rpm, chop the throttle to 4000rpm, and then GUNN IT again, the front wheel will come up. Keep your right foot ready for the rear brake just in case. But again, see if you can get those BALLS installed first; I had to.

You are right, but i dont drive fast on public roads.
My driving is my work, i drive semi truck for living.so speeding on public road not a good thing,one ticket,two tickets,three tickets and you lost your job-forever as a semi truck driver.

I weigh 215 lbs and if i bring it to about 6500 RPMs in second and let off then give it a handfull the bike stands striaght up. I wont even do first gear wheelies on a 1000 because its too short of a gear and a lot of power. I do have a -1 counter sprocket though.

I use to power wheelie but after practicing the clutch wheelie... I no longer power wheelie.... You don't get to enjoy it as much. Learn to clutch it man. I guarantee you wont regret it. 2nd and 3rd gear clutch wheelies is where its at. Definitely not 1st. When I first began doing it yeah I did it in 1st because it seemed to be the much easier option..

This thread is silly. You have people saying buy a bigger sprocket, wheelie haters, ect. The secret is that you have a LITER BIKE. If you cannot twist the throttle in first gear and have it come up off of pure acceleration, something's wrong...and it's not the bike.
