whats up guys, I got an 07 R6s and I wanted to try to get some suggestions on this....I can clutch 1st up sitting at about 4-5K and ride it out pretty far until redline hits but I really want to start getting into 2nd gear. When I try to clutch 2nd up, even when I rev the piss out of it it only comes up about 2 feet and thats about it....right back down...

suggestions??

stock gearing btw

interested as well. I just started trying 2nd staggered stand ups, bouncing the bike as I clutch it resulting in a 2-3 second air time. I'd guess the wheel is 10" off the ground. it's definitely a different feel from sitting to stand up. I'm probably covering the rear brake like a mofo, lol.

can the R6 come up in 2nd with a sitting clutched wheelie? 520 kit?

for wheelies yes... everything else, not so much. The newer R6 has a motor that sits farther forward and farther down making the balance point higher. Also means u need more power/force to get the bike up to the balance point

well first off WHY IN THE HELL ARE YOU YELLING!?!?!

I understand that it will power first, but I can get much higher and ride much further clutching...can you power at 5K?? I can clutch it at 5K. And bring it to about 11. Plus thats what Im comfortable doing....

I finally got frustrated enough tonight and had enough. I was determined to clutch up 2nd.....soooooo, about 55 mph sitting real far back, clutched to about 14K and dumped all while pulling back on the bars, boom. 11 o'clock and rocked that bish out....Now I gotta get my timing on the pull and dumping it down...

btw, its a little harder for me...Im 6'2'' 250 pounds...not exactly the ideal size for a 600....but never the less, I got it!!!!

and yes, its almost 3am.....cause Ive been practicing all damn night/morning :lmao

it's more fun to clutch up first anways. on my 06 i bring it up to 50 staggered and just bounce and it comes up. i can just bounce it up in 3rd at 75 with no clutch. all stock except slash cut slip on.

got the hang of sit down 2nd gear wheelies on my 07 now, can get it up from anywhere between 6k and 10k not tried out of this rev range , you gota give the bars a tug as you let the clutch out

I don't like pulling the handles, makes it wobble. and yes I finally got sitting 2nd by clutching it. not sure exactly what rpm but it's up there, 12k (ish).

up in third everytime with just a bounce and no clutch. Run it up to 70 in 3rd. Open it up and as soon as it hits 75 or 10k rpms bounce and keep accelerating and it should come right up. I was able to ride mine out for quite some time and set it down right around 85-95 everytime. 3rd is nice because you don't have to worry about running the gear out if you hit that balance point.
