Move your butt to the rear and tug like hell on them bars.

Or a power commander and full pipe should do the trick.

my cbr is a regular F4, not an F4i, so I can't use a power commander (i don't think)... are there any specific jet kits, or anything like that, that i should look for?

1st gear, cruise up to about 8 grand, roll off the throttle, snap it back on hard. It will stand right up. I have an f4I and this is all it takes. With your gearing change you may want to watchout, it may loop

If I remember correctly, Dan "owes" us a wheelie on Montgomery Road, preferably in a mini skirt.

Can I asked a "female" question? ;-)

Why are you guys so keen to do a wheelie? I am serious. I don't have any ambitions (so far!).
Is it a "guy thing"? What do you get out of it? Why do you have to do it?

Not sure. I don't have much experience with the Honda's. http://www.localriders.com/forums/sh...=&threadid=979 Check this thread we talked about jet kits. Maybe one of these people can give you more info.

Have you ever done a wheelie? If not, it's impossible to explain. What would you say if someone asked you why you ride a dangerous sportbike? If they've never ridden one, you wouldn't be able to explain it to them.

Because its fun to do! Maybe not always the safest, smartest, or only thing to do but its something I started doing when I was 5 on a pedal bike on and always enjoyed it ever since. But when I was five a wheelie was 1" high...lol

A sportbike isn't dangerous.... The bike doesn't do anything dangerous its the jockey on it!

The kind of Motorcycles doesn't matter much or gets you hurt its usually has something to do with mixing man/woman with moving parts...hehehe

I wasn't trying to say that sportbikes are dangerous. I was trying to make the point that you can't explain to someone why you do the things you do unless they too have done them. (Say that five times fast).

I own a 1996 zx6r ninja, and do wheelies whenever the mood strikes me, as long as there is no imminent danger...little kids, traffic, local cop...
I also have to agree with you Dave, for some reason, wheelies put a smile on my face, even if I'm not the one doing them.

Dont get me wrong wheelie are alot of fun to do but no one can really say that it also isn't to impress and show off especially if there is a attractive female around

Maintained 1 wheel riding is for squids!

I am so tired of having sport bikes run up on me from behind on KY 18 in Florence in heavy traffic with there front wheel up trying to look cool.

I have enough to worry about with the cages not seeing me to have to be concerned with another biker climbing my back.

What does this prove? That you can balance a lightweight bike?

If you must, do it away from traffic in an empty parking lot or back road. The key word here is empty, no traffic in sight.

If only there was a spot with no traffic...... it would be great to have a place to practic stunts, but you goto a warehouse parking lot and 10 mins later the cops show up. the street is really the only place people have! I use to do a lot of wheelies when i rode on the streets, im for sure not saying its a safe place to do it. maybe what you should do is buy a large black top lot and charge people to play on it.............
