Holy shit, Fang wrote a damn novel. He has a good point in there though, if yiu dont have electronics stopping you, its your brain. You have to truly get comfortable with it in your mind to let you pull the front and keep it there. The bike will wheelie, its a liter bike. I have the issue of my mind not letting me be ok with it, and Im not a road racer, or a fast track rider or even a fast drag racer. Im still learning to not chop throttle when the front pulls up on me, its just that you have to teach your mind to be cool with doinf it intentionally.

Hey everyone, thanks for the replies. Yes I do have traction control off when I'm attempting this. I am gonna have to wait a few days to try again. I made the mistake of stopping for a cop, bike got impounded and I ended up in jail for the night lol no biggy tho. And okay, I know the bike will pop up, but I've read a lot that the gen 4's have a hard time getting up there, and that seems to be my problem. Like I said, I just got the bike not too long ago, and it had a lot of extras and goodies. Don't rip me for this, I'm just asking if this is a possibility, but I noticed one of the extras was a chain length adjuster. Could this be another thing holding me back from wheelies?

chain length adjuster!!!!! Is this your first bike?? Unless its a shaft driven bike,they all have them and when i say all,even peddle bikes have chain adjustment..No chain length will not hold you back...Well maybe if your chain is so slack it totally skips over the sprocket or if its so tight the chain cant move..

Im thinking you should forget about pullin wheelies for now,learn about the bike and how to ride before you get funky..

" I noticed one of the extras was a chain length adjuster. Could this be another thing holding me back from wheelies".....Cant believe you asked that bud..

I only weigh 145 lbs. Gen 4 does a good job keeping the front down at WOT in any gear. But it you hold it at 8k rpm in first and rip it. The front end should come up no problem. I've also came to the conclusion that us light weight guys cause it to spin more. Theres no weight in the back. For example a 130 lb guy vs a 200 lb guy. The force of the heavier guys weight is going on the rear shock putting more pressure on the back tire causing the front end to come up easier.

Let's clear things up here for a minute.....you're talking about aftermarket precision adjusters like LightTech or Gilles, correct? You're not confusing the chain adjusters for extension bars, right? No, the chain adjusters won't make a difference, but a 6" extension bar would.

Wheelie how-to:
1) Turn TC off
2) Get moving in 2nd gear at 65mph and approx. 8,000rpm
3) Sit up straight
4) Back off throttle
5) Quickly open throttle
6) Hold on as the earth rotates around the back wheel of the bike

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

LMAO and PLEASE cover your back brake. I think first you should practice barely bringing it up then hitting your back brake or something.

I feel like he is definitely going to loop it.
