Traction control should keep the front end down. Try TC 2 or 3. Not sure how that works on the SE. The shear weight from you and a passenger alone along with the now higher and rearward CG would induce squatting and therefore more of a chance to wheelie under hard acceleration.

As they told you before, set the traction control to 2 or 3, if you still don't feel comfortable in 4 or 5.
The gen 5 has more torque and perhaps because of the geometry, it is easier to make power wheelies... but the CT should not allow it to lift more than 2 or 3 inches in mode 3.

Yeah, I’ve been running mine in full power and tc 3 and the front wheel stays on the ground pretty well. Mine is just an R model though, not sure how different the se is. I need to take it out to a nice straight road and play with all the different modes, it’s on my short list of things to do. Anyway, 3 works great if you want the the front to stay down.

in mode 3 if you really get it, the front can still lift about a foot off the ground but that's it. it's actually pretty damn cool cause it will just hold it at that height.

the gen 5 is one of if not the longest zx10r there has been, the SE is the heaviest that I know of but then again I am pretty blank when it comes to gen 2 and 3 bikes. I know gen 1 and 4 were for sure shorter and lighter than the 5. Gen 5 is supposed to have more mid range torque, not so sure about bottom end though, my gen 1 felt a whole hell of a lot more snappy off the line

Thanks everyone, I'm running it onTC3, full power. It probably only comes up about a foot so it's probably just me flapping a bit, I thi k a wheelie school might be in order, just a confidence builder,
