How to wheelie a ZX6R 1999 G2

Hi I have just done a course at the wheelie school learning to wheelie we used Suzuki Bandit 1200, I had no problem trying to wheelie these just rolled the throttle to 30mph and smothly snaped the throttle open and the wheel came up.

But when I tried to repeat this on my ZX6R G2 I just cant get the wheel up so easy, I managed a few very small wheelies just lifting the front wheel. I tried in 1st gear rolling the throttle to 5000rpm and smothly snapping it but just cant get that front wheel up to any decent height

can anyone help please....

More revs. 5k wont do it for a 600.

I'd go for 10k, but I imagine with some practice you should be able to do it around 7k. Personally, I prefer to clutch them.
Also pay attention to the body position. The bandits bars put your body more upright, putting more weight on the rear wheel.

I'd say try snapping the throttle at 7-8k. When you do it, lean/sit as far back as possible. You can also try to practice on a small hill/incline going upwards (its easier). You would be able to get the front end up like a foot or so. More practice and you should be able to get that sucker higher and be able to get to the BP and hold the wheelie for a bit.

If not, you can clutch it up. I'd say start small, roll at like 15mph and rev it up to 7-8k again and drop the clutch a bit fast, if you feel like your going to fast, just disengage. Remember, start small.
