I've started practicing wheelies with the gixxer lately. I have no problem getting it to pop up for short bursts and can sometimes bounce it a few times. It's been really hard to keep it in the balance point though. I'm usually sitting at about 9K plus RPM when I do it and have had way too many close calls with the bike almost going over backwards and crashing my nuts on the tank on the hasty landing that follows. I've been thinking about gearing so that I can do all of this lower in the rev range. Will it make the bike easier to balance? Will it throw off the speedo? Is that correctible? Any suggestions are both welcome and appreciated.
