2006 ZX10R Wheelie issues...

Hi, i have a 2006 ZX10R pretty well stock except exhaust, levers and couple cosmetics. I am trying to learn how to wheelie and i cant for the life of me get the thing up over 1-2 inches in first for power wheelies.

Now before we go further i practice in a huge private parking lot which is owned by a buddy of mine - i also do not attempt them in the city, i would just like to learn how to do them in controlled environment.

Anyways clutch ups i can get 1-2 Feet front tire im learning to go higher and higher with those, mostly in first gear around 40-50kmph, but doesn't seem to work for power wheelies i can grab a fist full of that throttle at whatever speed and it seems to only come up 1-2 inches.

Any tips for clutch ups or any reason as to why i cant get the front end up on power wheelies... (I am a bigger dude 6' 5" 240LBS but with 1000CC i thought for sure it would be big enough).

First time post as well so my apologies for for mating issues.

Try replacing the sprockets.

Get one tooth smaller in the front and add one tooth to the rear.

That should power wheelie with no problem.

Agreed. If you were 100lbs lighter you'd be looping it by accident, but at your weight it's valid that the 06-07's were geared more conservatively than some of the other 10R generations.

Move your ass to to back or the seat, chop the throttle around 9000rpm and hold on!
