954RR Wheelies

Hey all,

Looking at buying a 954 and put up a post last week, a few people said that getting the front wheel up isn't great for these bikes. I'm not one to be riding around on the back wheel all the time, but I do pop the occasional mono, so wanted to find out some more about this.

What is the issue? Poor oil circulation? Anyone here experienced this issue, and anyone here pop a wheelie constantly on the 954 and had no issues?

I'm keen to know your experiences with this, good or bad, and what the science behind it is.

I've never had any trouble and am not aware of the 929/954 being particularly prone to oil starvation. Lots of them get used for stunting which would seem to indicate they're fine with it.

Re: 954RR Wheelies

i could wheelie a ninja 250 if i wanted to...my R6 wheelied great!!! the 954 most certainly CAN wheelie...veeeryy easily



the 954 can probably do wheelies in 3rd gear going 120mph with a little clutch action and a competent rider

Gotta love a bike you can cuddle up with on a cold winter night.

Ya my R6 was a lot of fun...the newer R6 (06-11) is a lot harder to wheelie due to the ride-by-wire throttle...I though my friend was a retard because he was trying to learn to wheelie his 07 R6 and couldnt so I tried it out and although i got it up...it was a lot harder than my old R6...i think thats why they continued to make the R6 and just labeled it the R6s because it was such a good street bike and although the new R6 is a great track bike...it kind of sucks for the road...


I used to power my R6 up in first around 6K rpm and second around 8K rpm and clutch it up in second around 5-6K...but i dont really like powering them up because it is just so abrupt...but thats how i first started wheelies on a street bike My new CBR is so well balanced it makes wheelies ridiculously easy...plus the fact that i have it geared -1/+3 for the street im still not comfortable putting bth my feet on the back pegs though because then i have no control over the brake...i see a lot of guys do it though but i have also seen a couple crashes as a result...I miss my R6 though...it was a great bike

ya...dont want to crash the daily driver lol...Pre warning...on the newer R6...when i got it to wheelie...it really needed to get the rpm's up HIGH to get it up and keep it up...im talking like 12K rpms in second with the clutch...id get going to around where i was cruising at about 7-8Krpm and slip the clutch with the rpms at 12-13K and it would come up nice and smooth...this took a good 30 minutes to figure out on my friends bike i just dont feel safe knowing if the bike goes too far back that i dont have the brake to save me...ya know?? but some poeple dont think about it...they just dont care...or are too dumb to think lol....
