im not expert on the matter but i would have to say that it adds more wear and tear on your bike. also depending on how easy you can set her down you start to blow our your seals on your front shocks. but i dont let that shtuff stop me either :cheers

The majority of the damage to your bike caused by wheelies is when you crash...

Agreed...that is why when i wheelie i ONLY do it on a dirtbike. Wrecking my r6 would wipe out my bank account not to mention the added stress on the gearbox.

I'll stick to dirtbike wheelies, to me they're more fun anyway!

wears your gears faster, flat spots on front tires from landing, and i believe your oil floods the engine in areas too - i thought i read something like that somewhere.
