Aha, that would make a difference, but a bike with half the power should lift the front. As Got says, the engine needs to be in the fun zone.

mine only power wheelies if I am very intentional about it. I have to spring forward to preload the front and sit upright or slightly back as i rip it.

My bike power wheelies if I even glance at it funny. I avoid using full throttle for this very reason.

Well first off, I don’t want people getting the wrong impression.
I am not looking to wheelie around. I’m not into stunting by any means.
And I also agree that the rider mod would probably help the situation, I’m only asking because I was under the impression that with all my mods it would be difficult keeping the front down so I was just concerned that there was something else going on since it feels reluctant to lift up.
I’m thinking ditch the Coffman for a mivv carbon gp?

Or, if your front wheel is staying down, don't worry, be happy, ride more!

Look in the classifieds, Quisp has a full Black Widow system for cheap. Looks good.

Yep lose the cough-man, Mivv make a quality product. Or, look up Ivan and get the system he helped develop. Many options to choose from.

BTW, I was just bustin yer ballz abit about the stunting thing. My sense of humor doesn't always translate well. In person though................



IM STILL AN ASSHAT........

Mine with the full yosh/ivanized will come up pretty easily, even with the horrid stock gearing which I'm definitely going to change soon. My gen1 was pretty well sorted with a full exhaust and also ivanized and I ran 15/45 sprockets. That bike came up easier...

If I lay into mine at like 20mph it won’t wheelie if I’m tucked. Now if I’m sitting upright then ya it will come on up. Now at like 45mph in 1st my bike is stupid no matter how I’m sitting on the bike.

Do you still have an EXUP valve?
If its not working or adjusted right it will kill your power just about 6-8 k RPM.

It's a Gen2. Doesn't a slip on eliminate the exup?

Don’t worry Wilie, I’m immune to ball busting.
I always feel safe posting my sometimes idiotic questions and concerns on here because it seems for the post part it’s a good group of people.
I’ll look into a reputable exhaust once I get my tax return!

Yep, apparently I misunderstood. I thought you were trying to wheelie, not wondering why it did not naturally, given the mods you have. If you're not being at least somewhat aggressive with the throttle in the lower gears at 6k and above, then the wheel should remain on terra firma. No worries.

You're a good man. You can sell that Coffman locally or on ebay for 100$ cuz suckers are born every day.

Buy from our very own PJ. Best prices for the MIVV and yes many agree MIVV is one of the best sounding and looking pipes

I'm thinking maybe someone slipped a shaft drive on to your bike while you wasn't lookin'.

hmmm mine with the Mods in my sig power wheelies with ease. It actually would do it at about full throttle 10,000 rpm in first with just a 16T and a K&N..I dont clutch or yank the bars either..just a quick throttle whack above 6000 or so and hold on rides beautifull wheelies until the rider runs out of guts..lol

I've only pretty much power wheelied or picked it up over a crest.

Been riding for years and the only "real" wheelie I pulled (dirt bikes don't count, love to goof on them) was on my Gen 1 when I whacked the throttle in anger at a driver who suddenly braked and turned with no signal. It was right after I had the carbs synched, it was cool out, and I grabbed a fistful....it was quite the experience.

However, to this day I still have the respect and fear of trying to pull one up. I just have visions of looping her in my head. Too much $$$ invested to throw it away trying to be 25 again. On the track, etc. it doesn't bother me when it comes up, but that is only 6-12" probably and I have a steering damper.
