2nd gear wheelie on 600rr

well ive been ridin for bout 5 years and i have always been doin my wheelies from first gear and shiftin into second on the fly...problem is, when the wheel comes up in 1st, sometimes it snaps up and sometimes i gotta throw my ass back to get it to bp. every1 tells me to bounce it or cluctch it in second cuz it comes up alot more smoothly and predictably. so lately ive been tryin to clutch it up, with crappy results. i cant get the front end off the ground more than a foot or so. and when i try to stand up and bounce and clutch it, as soon as the wheel comes off the ground it scares me cuz i think imma lose my grip on my clutch hand.(due to havin my hand half open to operate the clutch) so my question isshould i jus worry bout clutchin it up while sittin down till i get the hang of it? and if so, any lil techniques that you guys might know?? or should i jus stop bein a pussy and keep practicing?? and jus to let you know the reason im wanting to learn them from second is cuz, sometimes when i shift from 1st to 2nd on the fly, i slap it into neutral which slamms my front end down hard...i dont wanna replace forkseals any time soon any advice would help

I am what I am, and I do what I do!!

You're not reving it high enough and then letting the clutch out. I just rode a wheelie far as hell on an R6 from 2nd gear

sounds like your fix'n to loop that 600. Get a beater if you're learning to wheelie.

Why? If you have a method that works?

I always start my wheelies in first and shift gears. There is no difference what gear you start in if you know how to wheelie. You're still doing power wheelies until you hit the balance point anyway.

The mouse trap between 1st and 2nd kills transmissions on sportbikes all the time. Get a wheelie up in 2nd instead of first to avoid shifting through the mouse trap

the reason i wanna learn the second gear method is "sometimes when i shift from 1st to 2nd it goes ito neutral and the front end slamms down hard" which damages fork seals and trannies

I am what I am, and I do what I do!!

the 600rr will get up in second with a bounce no prob, but it won't be anywhere close to BP. Work on the clutch. Just start at a lower RPM's, and move your way up. Find a parking lot so u can only worry about techniqe, and not gettin in an accident

covering the brake means nothing if you dont train urself to use it. if you dont, by the time you think about hittin the brake, you'll be on ur ass. so start using it when you dont need it, so u can get used to using it when you do need it.

and only clutch it with one finger, that way you still have the other 4 to hold on with.
