wheelies other than 1st gear

I've had my '06 R6 for three weeks now and am getting a good feel with pulling the front up in 1st. it's up for a few seconds before the rev limiter hits. I had a 250 enduro that I changed gears while it was up but never tried it on a sportbike. how do people get the bike up in higher gears, keep in mind the bike is stock. thanks.

You need a flux capacitor set to 1.21 gigawatts.
Anything either side of that and the front wont lift.

Get a feel for the power band on your bike.. Get into the power band pull in the clutch rev it up and dump it.. Thats my 2 cents..

yep, there's room for more in 2nd the couple times I tried, I wanted to hear it can be done. plus the power band will be changing when I go with a 520 kit.

Re: wheelies other than 1st gear

Are you doing power-wheelies? Power-wheelies in first will definitely hit the rev lim quick, especially if you're not finding that balance point. I can power it up in 2nd...and even 3rd (stand-ups compressing the shocks and standing on the rear peg). Otherwise if you're looking to shift, I clutch up in 2nd until i find that sweet spot then w/o using the clutch slip it into 3rd...then 4th...

but if this is your first streetbike then take it slow. I definitely didn't start doing that within the first three weeks...
