it means that you have to lay on the gas tank, and push the front end down while full-throttling thru third gear otherwise, this bike is wheelie'ing

ive never ridden but im sure if icecold hasnt figured out yet he will in shortly, and hopefully enliten us on how long it took before the front wheel came up

Everyone needs a healthy way to relax, mine Church, and two wheels, a stretch of winding road, and a pipe loud enough to give me headaches and make squirrels explode. (Fixed curtousey of PWRMAD)

Nothing is impossible the second we say ill try your already admiting you can be defeated, and the second you say i cant or its to hard youve already failed.

only the blue and white 2008 gsxr 1000 that is the 600, 750, and 1000 can go "yutugh" but you got to pay $50 to see that happening

This is going to be a long-term relationship

its kinda hard to explain, but ~40% throttle in first results in wheelies when passing the torque peak(~8000rpms)

75%-100% in second and third results in a 6-10inch wheelie at the same RPMs

only in first and second does it "feel" like I should roll out of it, otherwise it would get too high type of thing.
