Im a 220lb guy and I havent tried in third but I can power her up in 1st & 2nd just by scootin my ass back on the seat, finding the right RPM, and busting it open.

Just make sure youre giving it the power it needs.

Where do you live? Im in Wyoming and in stock form my bike wouldnt power wheelie in any gear, the reason is the altitude, you loose a lot of power the higher you live, Im around 6500 feet.

hmm, I am in Reno so altitude may be a consideration. I needed to set up my suspension in order to keep the ride stable. 176lbs in gear.

W.F.O.ing with style will bring life back into focus

to power it up in second you gotta be making pretty good hp so your going to be going like 75mph and up thats how fast im going when i do it. just sit back on the seat open and close open your right up.

I can power wheelie my buddies 04 when its at stock height in 3rd or 4th at about 110 with no trouble. Its lot easier though if you "bump" the clutch.
Oh yea, and I'm about 175-180lbs. in boxers.

You gotta load your suspenion with shutting down the throttle for that split second before you power it back up. I have a 04 and I can power it up all the way through 3rd. Mess with your rpms a bit to find the torque you need but its there. I can get a bit of a hop in 4th but not enough to come more than maybe 1ft off the ground. Good luck, and expect to go through chains and rear tires at a rapid rate if you plan on powering them up.

Except for ending Slavery, Fascism, Nazism, and Communism WAR has never solved anything.
