If you watch the video and follow the method he shows you to slip the clutch it will work best.

Are you serious? Yes, it's the same as the older model ZX6-R. It's been said a thousand times. ANY sport bike built since 1987 will wheelie. It's all in the technique. If you don't think your bike can do it, don't try it. My ZX6R is exactly the same as your ZZR, just older.

1, 2, 3, 4 maybe even 5 clutching it up can work for any gear.. just depends on the person and the way they do it. granted the higher you go up in gear you'll probably have to bounce it also..but why would you want to wheelie so fast?.. lol

But for people starting out, it's the fastest way to end up on the ground. I've seen people learn both ways. I agree, when done properly, it's not THAT hard on your clutch, but that also depends on proper adjustment, quality of oil you're using, regular maintenance etc. Also, I'm betting you don't technically "SLIP" the clutch, you "pop" it. Slipping is what you do in San Francisco when you have to go uphill from a stop OR at the start of a race.

As I have had my super hawk for 6 months now, I have decided to learn wheelies. My old 600 was completely incapable of wheelies, and I was afraid to wheelie the RD350 so I don't have much experience on one wheel. I have gotten the unintended loft from both the RD and the Hawk while under acceleration but nothing near the balance point, and nothing abrupt. So I have been practicing from the beginning. First gear baby wheelies, just twisting from a slow put put, or throttle off/throttle on. No clutch involved. Sometimes I get greater results than others, and I am afraid to move on until I can consistently pull it up in first. What I have noticed though is that the acceleration that results from grabbing so much throttle seems to affect my head. I feel pressure, (especially if it doesn't pop up) as the bike accelerates rapidly through the Rev range in first gear. After spending 15-20 minutes out on a deserted road, I almost felt car-sick, and can only attribute it to the sudden acceleration on the inner ear. Anybody else experience this or find it hard to learn wheelies because of the rapid increase in perceived speed. I feel like it is a mental barrier that I need to make it past. Anybody have any tips?

If you're experiencing vertigo from hard acceleration you should not be trying to do wheelies. If you're out on a desert road though, you may be just overexerting yourself and getting dehydrated. Learning how to wheelie on a big twin is stressful and strenuous. Make sure you have plenty of water in your system, salt, potassium. I always kept tons of water, Gatorade, and bananas on hand at the schools. I also had sodium and potassium tabs on hand too for those hotter days.

Safety first doesn't just mean always wear all your gear.

like i said many times...look at the sticky...the one i posted shows you how to wheelie...

for 1st gear wheelies, its hard to keep it up unless you clutch it which is pretty shit scary unless you know how to use your rear brake too...

watch the vids and see what it can do for you

yes it does, .... especially when the bike lands on you and breaks some bones..

here's a tip, make sure your tank has enough fuel in it that a high long one is not going to affect the fuel feed.
