Talking ergonomics of wheelies on non-sportbikes

I know the ergonomics of a bike (seated positon, comfortability) play a role in sportbike performance; both at the racing level and at stunting. the differences like trying to ride a wheelie on a chopper vs. sportbike.

does anyone have experience on riding wheelies on the streetfight bikes like the FZ1000, SV1000,650, CB900, KZ1000?
Is there no difference if you KNOW how to ride a wheelie anyways or is it more difficult?

thanks

Trevor

OK, I don't know much about stunting, but I remember seeing a vid of Honda Valkyrie wheelie a while back. It was very impressive to see, and I only wish I had saved it back then. My father-in-law rides a Valk, and I would love to show that one to him for grins. Anyone have that vid?
