I might be wrong, but this bike weighs 700lbs. dry. Anyting less than slapping a rocket on its ass, won't bring the front end up. :redfaced: Nevermind.... I just found out otherwise.

haven't got it up yet, and i've gotten on it pretty hard. i'm sure you could pop the clutch, blip the throttle, push off, etc to get it off the ground if you really wanted to...but not naturally.

I have tryed to bring it up but regular street traction maybe you will a littel, but on cecil county dragway, just a littel blip and it stood straight up, so good traction it will jump street traction not likely.

TWO FEET - LOL!!!

Took mine just off the ground (less than a foot) - That was on my first ride home from the dealer - (a Civic was on my rear and I wanted to create a little distance... "SURPRISE!") :eek:

tip # 47 - "Don't shift down to first and power up fully unless you want to lift the front end up"

When Lamont and I did our little race a couple of weeks ago I got on it about as hard as you can and didn't get much more than front suspension flex.

I don't think wheelie prone is the right word, but it does come up occasionally. I was coming out of a parking lot in Hell (Mi.) a week or so ago, and the folks I was riding with had left the lot first so I nailed it when I had it almost vertical and not quite straight to the road. It's a real adrenaline rush when you unexpectedly find your front wheel off the pavement when you're still half leaned over.
