i have been ridin for about 3 weeks and im already comfortable enough to hit 150-160 on the highway i ride a 06 gsxr 600 k6 now im trying to stunt alittle. Im having trouble poppin wheelies i dont like the feel up slipping the clutch but tonight i did a power wheelie in first and got about a foot off the ground for about 20ft. I just put a bmc air filter in and i getting my 15 tooth sprocket put in tommorrow will the sprocket make it easier for me to get it up or do i need to get over the fear of poppin the clutch. Im a big guy as well im 6'3 220lbs any pointers, thanks

You've been riding for THREE WEEKS and you're comfortable doing 150-160mph?!?!!?

I think you are about to get flamed to a crisp.

Anyone need K6 parts? Check this thread often

To the original poster:
First off lay off the stunting. You have a long way to go just learning how to ride. Practice emergency stops, mid corner braking, and clean lines. Also, 160mph on the highway is just plain stupid. Best place for that sort of thing is on a private track. If you cant do that, at least pick empty backroads. Its one thing to be putting your life and bike in danger, its completely different to be putting the lives of other people on the road in danger.
Since you are unlikely to listen to that advice.... Leave the sprocket off. Sure it will make bringing the bike up easier, but it will also make it less stable when the front wheel is up at the air. You dont want to loop your shiney new bike, do you? Your bike should come up just fine with stock gearing, so practice that, if you gotta practice anything.

And dont forget your gear!

It takes time to develope the skills to do what you are trying to do. It does not happen over night. Did you take the MSC class? They teach you what you need to do to stay on 2 wheels safely. Take it slow. Please, take your time.

Please keep in touch on this forum, really curious to know your progress with riding a motorcycle.
Keep stunts off the streets!
Get together with people in your area who know about spots where it's safe. And wear your gear, growing back flesh takes time out of riding!
Come to Track Days and indulge your need for speed, don't be supid and endanger other people. Have respect!

Keep in touch, or have your friends update us on your condition...HEEEHEE

Well I hope that wheelie wasn't at 150mph otherwise 20 feet wouldn't be too far

I seriously doubt its possible to do a power wheelie at 150 on a liter bike, much less a 600.

If it could the wheelie would be a short one, but I wasn't being serious
