Any ZX-10R Owners wish they had a 6???

Still can't decide on a 636 or a 10. I used to have a 94'zx-7 that I could clutch up to BP but it would then fall as soon as you tried to ride out the wheelie due to lack of nutz.

I have rode my co-workers 06' R1 and done a few small power ups in 1st and 2nd. He said he wishes he had bought a R6 so he could clutch wheelie and beat it like you can a dirt bike.

Just wanted some ZX-10 opinions on riding on the rear wheel as I like to do.

Anybody switched the back sprocket?

If you like to be on the rear tire, then the 10R is for you.

A 94 ZX7 has over 100HP. If you could get it to BP then it's not the bike with the lack of nutz....

It's possible to clutch up small bikes or liter bikes. I use to power up wheelies on my 6R, but also practiced clutching it on a R1. It's only preference how you want to get to BP. Then it comes down to skill on if you can keep it there.
