I would put it in second, pin back the throttle for a few seconds, and then let the clutch out quickly. You'll do a clutch wheelie if you try that.

I watched a video on youtube and it was said that if you get on the throttle and just grab the clutch and let it go while staying on the throttle will result in the front wheel coming up....is this true?

I can power the front up in first but have never attempted a clutch up.

the best thing is to learn back brake control. that is the most important thing in regards to a wheelie. learning on a honda 50 will make you extremely fluent in back brake control.

in second gear, scoot your ass as far back in the seat as possible. this moves your weight farther back on the bike, making BP not as high, and also you cannot slide back accidentally. stay leaned back also

cover your rear brake with your foot

ride at 4k RPM, pull in the clutch with your pointer finger (one finger clutch pulls allow you to keep a grip on the bars) rev the engine up to 5k, and drop the clutch.

you will not sky rocket into the air

go back to 4k and rev to 5500. drop the clutch.

keep increasing your rpm 500 everytime. this will allow you adapt to the jolt and front wheel lifting too high scaring you.

repeat this, making sure the rear brake is covered. if you think you are too high (which you are not, film it) close th throttle and the front will come down. once you start getting higher and riding longer you will learn the back brake eventually.

this method works on any bike with a clutch

i learned back brake control and wheelies on a 50

i moved to a stock f4i, and used the above method and was rocking BP 2nd gear in 3 hours

the next day first gear BP in an hour

the next day first gear from a stop, using no throttle once up, only the back brake (known as "idle")

the 50 helped me learn so quickly


the 1000rr is a touchy bike and not the best learner wheelie bike. but it is possible

3rd gear...hit the smallest little bump or hill and clutch the hell out of it and pull and bounce and do everything in your might and you can do 3rd gear sit downs

I agree completely with sixmassive... Learn brake control..... I learned the hard way... You will tell when your standing close to 12 or bp... the bike seem to be rocking back in slow motion. but tap that rear brake and throttle control is important. I got too excited when I was up and forgot to tap the rear brake.... As you can imagine the bike is totalled flipping about 8 times down the road. Luckily, no ticket, minor damage to myself, major damage to my pride.... I another one in 1 week and my insurance rate went down... not up... Since it was my birthday... Talk about good timing! Still on one wheel!

I've heard a few different ways of doing this, like; you pull the clutch in, blip it once to "clear it's throat", then dump it like your trying to launch it... you have the "normal" method, which I use; I move my weight back in the seat slightly, grip the bike with my knees, take all my weight off the bars (which you should be doing all the time anyway) and "flare" the clutch as I give it BIG hand full of throttle. It's the best sounding way of clutching it. I've had some pretty inconsistent results, I haven't ever flipped a bike, but I've come close, it is a fair bit harder then power monos in 1st...
