Give it some throttle no need to pop the clutch, very easily in 1st, 2nd and 3rd to bring up the front wheel...Be careful and make sure you cover the back brake.

Poser wheelies seriously all you need to do is be going along in 1st gear about 4000RPM and just twist the throttle a little until you feel it come up, if you have done wheelies before you will know.

I find it amusing because I have a hard time keeping my front wheel on the ground in the first 3 gears..Being 5'10' and 195 pounds geared up coming out of corners

Even funnier yet I would say you need to take your bike back to the dealer and get rid of it...along with your friends

Are you completely new to riding???

Re: my 08 blade has wheelie control!!!!!

my last bike was a 95 600f3 and i was starting to do wheelies on it till one day i went to high and over it came, i been scared shitless to even try a wheelie on my 929 as i love the bike and the fear of flipping it is still burnt in my head, but to be honest, just hitting the highway and given her gas, the first few gears is very hard to keep the wheel on the ground i feel it start to lift and i dont mean to, so im not sure whats gogin on with u, ur trying and cant im not tyring and it come ups

Re: my 08 blade has wheelie control!!!!!

I looped my last RR AT 100mph last year and totaled it, the new bike scares me every time the front end comes up but after 1300 miles on it I am getting use to it.

Dev435..

I agree with your last post it is a mind over matter with the new Blade After you and your friend get a few more miles in it, you will get use to the throttle

Re: my 08 blade has wheelie control!!!!!

If you cant get it up, then try somw VIAGRA . No, seriously, if you cant get the wheel up on an 08 Blade, then i suggest leave the wheelies alone cause you're prolly just gonna end up on ur ass hurt somewhere. Im 300 pounds and and can get lil ol 6s up. But im born with that gift. Sounds like you're scarred of the juice twister to me.

Re: my 08 blade has wheelie control!!!!!

I had an R6 and around 4 grand clutching it or closing and opening the throttle the front end would come up, or just nailling the gas it would come up. The new RR 5-6 grand and a hand full of throttle and the bike comes right up, or just grab a hand full from the get go
