gearing for slow wheelies

What is the best front/rear sprocket sizes for slow wheelies?

I have a 96' GSX-R 750, mostly stock.

Lets keep this one on the subject please.

best gearing is relative to what you want to do......going +5 is a big jump....going +10 is huge...... you can go two ways

going Down (-) in the front is usually about the same as going up 2-3 in the back so if someone says go down 1 in front its like saying +2 in the back so when he said -1 +22 its like saying +24 or +25.

that being said many guys are doing different things. And it is possible to 12 oclock on stock gears. I have seen a guy personally from 600rr.net clutch up a 12 and do circles on a brand new 07 cbr 600rr with stock gearing. Many old school guys recommend learning to 12 and slow down on stock sprockets but the new age guys will say just go up 10 lol or up 15 or even more.

there unpredictable, and they require the person to commit at a high rate of speed...unless you rock a litre bike.

nobody that stunts powers up wheelies or any other tricks during wheelies its always clutch its more preditable and allows you to get to bp fast and ride them out slow and constant rather then blowing by people with the tire 2 feet off the ground while trying to chase bp.
