Hmmm. If you're not able to wheelie a ZX-10, then you're not opening the throttle hard enough or fast enough. Or you're in a gear that's too high. So you should probably stop trying at this point.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

1. 1st gear, 7-8000rpm
2. let off the throttle so the front end settles just for an instant
3. whack open throttle and cruise on 1 wheel into the sunset
4. Men want to be you and women want to be with you.

End lesson.

A few more points. Start with baby steps. Just try to get it 2" of the ground for awhile (weeks to months) and learn to rip through the power band with the wheel hovering above the ground. Once you get that down, going higher and higher will come naturally.

Don't pull wheelies on windy days or on uneven pavement.

When it comes to stunting and wheelies I have always subscribed to the mindset that if you have to ask you don't need to be doing it.

Great place to start and get comfortable with the motion of the wheelie, I have been trying them for a couple years now and I still chase them! Always make sure to have your foot on the rear brake lever to save yourself as well. Once you get comfortable with that, start doing it with the clutch. A lot of video's online to explain in detail how to go about wheelie's as well.

With this mindset I never would have been able to crash my grom dozens of times! I guess the proof is in the pudding...

The more you learn, the more you realize how little you know.

I've done that a couple times. I should probably get my sperm count checked now.

A further note to the OP. Do not rush it. It takes months to get to get confident with the wheel up in the air and months and months further to ride a balance point wheelie.

I learned by trying to pop a 1" wheelie after every single stop light or during every single stretch of open pavement. It came in stages and it took hundreds of progressively bigger wheelies before I was able to ride the balance point or do it in 2nd gear at highway speeds.

Also, try to resist the temptation to pull wheelies at night while you're still learning. It helps your calibration when you can subconsciously see the horizon and/or surroundings. When it's dark out, you lack visual input and a wheelie takes more skill.

If you're having trouble wheelying your ZX10R, try putting the other two spark plugs back in. Mine wheelies under throttle at the 2nd - 3rd shift and I weight 260 w/o gear. Two Bro's header back system only.
