stunting setup

No matter what I do I can not get the front wheel to lift on my '03 GSXR600. If under throttle the rear seat lifts from the wheel will cranking up the rebound on my rear suspension minimize the seat lift and result in more wheelie capability?

A few weeks ago I cleaned my K&N and it was coming up at will under throttle around 7k in first. Later that week I put-on a new rear Dunlop207. Since then it doesn't do anything.

Also, A friend has noticed that I blow white smoke shifting from 1st to 2nd, perhaps indicating a overly rich mixture.

Any suggestions?

And I don't want to set-up my bike just for wheelies cause I really enjoy leaning in twisties, so I don't want to compromise that.

Like I said before. Whenever you got the time, but it hasn't happened.

Well, it's a little late in the season now, but it is just going to take practice. Do you have a chatterbox?

Are you cracking the gas and trying to lift the front end, or are you clutching it? I know you do not want to destroy your clutch, but this will aid getting it up and controlled at low speeds. If you are trying to crack the throttle, the bike will still come up, but you will be trying to keep up with your speed.

You won't. Only standups work in 2nd. Balance is key. If you want to ride them out, you need to get the bike to the balance point, then you can start shifting gears.
