That's what I started this thread, I roll on the throttle, agressive..not crack on it...and it did come up slowly and not very high the first few times I tried...but lately..nothing at all...I just run out of gear.

Either turn it farther or stop letting off the gas when the front gets light.

Sit back in the seat while rolling at about 35 MPH. While in first gear, quickly close the throttle and then open it all the way.
If the front does not come up, something is wrong.
You really need to learn to clutch the bike up. It is easier to bring the front up that way.

I weigh 200lbs naked and my bike will still come up easily with a 16f 41r sprocket setup. Which is 1 down in the rear from stock. aka less torque and more top end then stock
+1 If your are naked it will help

you just said the problem.
dont roll on the throttle.
wack it wide fucking open...
if the engine bogs a bit... start from faster.


all that said.. you're NOT ready to wheelie.... thats obvious from what you just said throughout the thread.

when you try to push it instead of letting it come naturally, thats when you crash.

I agree with the dude. Try doing it on a dirt bike first. After you have mastered riding that then try it on a street bike. I can see you looping it easily the first time you really wack it. A 1krr of any year will easily wheelie with no clutch up.
