Question 120+ mph wheelie zx 6

a squid at work claims he can pull a wheelie on his zx-6 at 120+ mph . of course when you say prove it, he all of a sudden remember he sold the bike a while back . screw that loser . i was just wondering can this be done on a 600? without going over any rise in the road etc.........

cant do it myself but id have to say yes... as long as a person can keep the wheel up, once hes in motion he just needs to keep at the juice and keep it balanced.

Pull it up at 120? NO

Pull it up and keep it there accelerating to over 120? Yes

I agree.


Sage can pull it up at 100 mph, but thats on a Gixxer 1K and it doesnt look easy... I think he drops it down to 3rd???
...Sage, Input?

I'd say he's a liar. And a bad one at that. I ride a GSXR 1000 and it won't come up at 120 mph. It will at 90, (clutched, in 3rd) but that's about it. Maybe if he's got it punched out to 800cc, turbo kit and nitrous, and hits a good little rise in the road and yanks real hard on the handlebars while standing on the rear pegs.......I sorta doubt he's doing all that, though. I'd have to say he's full of shit.
