From a hard launch, I may pull away, but sure as shit, every damn time the R6 hits 120, he goes by on one wheel.. VERY stable tho.
So basically I suck still at wheelies and need to try harder or make a change that would be inappropriate for my riding. I'm not too surprised.
I really think the problem is I jerk the bars a bit when I rip the throttle. This moves the bars enough to start the wiggle and as it comes up it continues until I put it down and everyone else is shitting pants but on the bike it doesn't feel too bad at all. LOL
I guess I gotta stop being a squid and keep my wheelies on the track which is rare for me unless i'm coming off the apron in 2nd or tipping up real fast.
The same thing happened to me man when I bounce them in second, more so when I subconsciencely ended up yanking on the bars. Try to just concentrate on thinking about giving a good hard push down on the pegs with your legs only and giving it a ton of gas AS YOU BOUNCE DOWN.. I try to put as little pulling pressure on the bars as possible when trying to bring it up. I did notice that when I bounce it really hard and gas it a lot it comes up REALLY quick, sometimes catches me off guard. Give it a try, works for me atleast..
