Default Prolly a dumb question but ...

Ok I know this bike is a beast and is a wheelie machine but having never ridden one I gotta ask.

How easy is it to wheelie? Like is it mandatory to clutch up in gears 1-4 or can it just power wheelie in gears 1-4? My other bikes would only power wheelie in 1st then id have to clutch up in the other gears.

Don't flame me but I was just wondering.

Depends on final gearing and whether you have TC on or not, but for me, power 1-3, clutch 4-6.

You're right...stupid question especially when you create posts like this on the ZX-10R forum. So you've never ridden it but sat on it and determined it feels like crap?

Hahaha omg dude ur like my stalker! I said that about the older model. I didn't like the way it felt on my wrists, the ninja is the same. I don't try to hide nothing. I like the 08 cbr and it's ugly too but still a nice machine and after u own one ur mind changes.

Jeez... U follow me around like a lost puppy.

Dont take this the wrong way, but I have seen your post in the other forums. Im sure others have but just let it go. The problem with what you do is that you ask questions just to ask them and say your going to buy something different in every forum then your not going to be taken seriously . If you really want help, Im sure there's a lot of people here that would help you, myself included.BUT since you have made a pattern out of this, a lot of people will not take you seriously. Whatever bike you buy good luck. Im not trying to be an asshole. I really do hope you get the bike you want. Its just that I can see what Jagman is saying...

Yea man I get it. But I was doin research. When I first started looking at a new bike the Beemer wasn't even an option. I would have jumped the gun. But since I took my time I realized I had some good options. I been on that other forum for years. But I get it.

I don't even understand the killa kawi quote. Seems to praise and diss the bmw. And what the hell is a g4?

Anyway, all modern literbikes will power up 1-3. All 600's will do it at least in 1st.

The throttle can be also thought of as an altitude control. Light pressure goes forward, twisting goes up.

Good stuff and I know what you mean. Lots of good options out there.When you do buy the bike, regardless of which one, be sure to post up with some pics too! Good luck!
