Ive been tryin to master
wheelies aswell recently, i have no problem getting the wheel up now, its riding it out thats hard, BUT here is what ive learned so far:
I dont like bounching it up or power wheelies in any of their guises, really inconsistent, some times it comes up too quick, sometimes it doesnt come up, ill describe how you do it though, to snap it up on the throttle as said, roll on, snap it shut, as soon as the forks start to come back up, snap the throttle open, the bounce of the forks will help the engine get the wheel off the ground.
However, much better technique is clutching it up, dont worry about your clutch, youll get thousands of wheelies out of a clutch before you burn it out.
I like to do it in second because it is less brutal than first and you can ride it out for longer (what im trying to master), im doing this on a k5 gixxer 6, but for me, i ride along at about 35-40mph with my arse at the back of the seat and my foot covering the rear brake, pull in the clutch, rev the engine to about 10krpm (if you dont give it enough, itll just lurch, if you get it right, it comes up smooth as anything) drop the clutch and keep on the throttle as it comes up, gradually rolling off as it comes up so it doesnt go over the top, then the idea is to control it on the throttle untill you want to come down/run out of revs/want to change gear, this is what im struggling with, then as the wheel is on its way down i accelerate out of the wheelie to smooth the landing out, if you dont it hammers down, if you do you'd hardly have known the wheel was up.
Dont worry about it, its not as brutal when done right as you'd think, the wheel comes up pretty slowly off the clutch, probably takes more than a second to get from the ground to peak, plenty of time to think.
However, id just point out, if your tyres are cold or the ground is wet, you wont get a wheelie, youll get a wheel spin. Wait for a warm dry day.
