    Wheelie question for a fzr 1000

    Hey, My bud just got a 1992 fzr 1000, he's pissed because he can't get the damn thing to wheelie. I told him that it should wheelie no problem being a 1000cc. So I got on the bike and tryed myself, I tryed every rpm from 4500 all the way to 7500 and can't get that shit up, what the hell are we doing wrong. Any suggestions.

    Thanks
    Its better to have the power and not need it, then to need the power and not have it

    I was using the clutch, but probably needs a little more practice, your right that bike is heavy.

    Thanks

    I had a 1991 FZR1000, no problems at all.
    Sorry to tell your that man, but
    it's not the bike, it's the rider.

    I was thinking the same thing because that thing should snap no problem. My r6 pops up like nothin, maybe I'm just used to the easy wheelie machine
