I think what you are suggesting is he drop a tooth in front and/or add some in the rear which will change the gear ratio which WILL impact acceleration (increase) and top speed (decrease) allowing for easier wheelies.
This.

Yeah, I to like my bike to much to want to do them. Yeah when I hit it around 7 or 8k the front end will come up... but it's not much more than a foot or so. Just be careful man... you have lots of things to look forward to in life... I really don't think a trip to the ER is one of them, right? Also, if you're not careful in setting them down, you'll tear up your forks and fork seals.

I've watched many videos on youtube on how to do a wheelie but, when I try to do on my own, it doesn't work out. Any helpful hints or ideas. No unnecessary bashing please.
its easy 2nd @ 70 mph clutch it and up she goes then just modulate the throttle

start small 2nd gear mid rpms close the throttle and crack it open halfway and at the same time lean you chest back, cover the back brake (very important) if it jumps too high use the rear brake if its too low give more power. if it doesnt come up at all your not giving enough throttle and not leaning back enough. clutching up is really easy but remember to cover the back brakes. go find a desserted street and go with someone while you practice so they can pick your arse up if you wipe out. good luck start small and youll be fine.
PERFECT !!!!!!!!

Wheelies are the norm when riding hard on back roads with dips and hills, I purposely wheelie off of dips and rises because its fun. They usually just happen, and after a while they become a common occurence. '04 and up R1's are the easiest to wheelie safely, '98-'03 have almost too much mid,making throttle control critical. First gear is the safest if you must try, roll into throttle quickly at about 40-45 . Don't ride along at a steady 40-45 in 1st, just start rolling into it at 40-45, after excelerating normally up to 45. Eventually you will find the sweet spot of throttle opening, and speed required for a smooth lift of the front wheel without much drama. Shifting while wheelying is about the most fun thing I can think of, I don't do it in traffic or the highway, or ever standup. Just normal sit down 100-130 (3rd gear) ones are a blast, and relatively easy with the R1's power and solid chassis.

Unrelated - but noticed you use EFI Live. I got a new laptop and thing won't read or flash my truck now. And have you ever tuned a Duramax?

What version of windows are you running? So it seems like the computer isnt recognizing the cable? I've done 3 different Duramaxs, all have been pretty close to being the same. I did have some fueling issues on one of them, but it was worked out in about 2 hours.

This is how you learn to wheelie. The man is 53 and I believe he started was around 51 or 52.

I used to pow pow all over the place for 5 years until I bought my self a nice F4i and learned to use the foot brake. Now I wheelie my 07 at any speed and any distance I like, if I want to do a wheelie at 30mph I'll do it, if I want to do one at 60mph on the highway I'll do that too. Nothing beats the feeling of having control of your bike on one wheel.

Get a stunter and go to a parking lot. Hope Stunt Dabba gives you some motivation. Ride safe.

That's what I'm talking about ENEICE. Like I said, I've been riding for a while and wheelies was something I never had the courage to do. I love track days and canyon runs and I would love to be able to do what you do. I find myself reving the hell out of my bike and not doing anything aside from picking up the front wheels a couple of inches. Take care.

Alot of people learn that way but I suggest dropping by stuntride sometime. I also have a friend who is 38 now and hes been doing it for 2 years now and hes doing great. I'm not saying you have to convert to a full blown stunt rider who does circle wheelies but learning how to use the foot brake to slow you down opens up alot of doors and the best way to do so is get a stunt bike and find a nice parking lot. However its addicitng the better you get the more you want to learn.
