    G,day mate, good to see a rider with wheelie aspirations, ya R1 will 12 o'clock like a mofo.
    Find private, straight long and wide road.
    1st gear roll throttle on to around 6 grand to lighten the front end getting the forks to extend while doing so, then nail it, the quicker you open the throttle the quicker it will stand up so try some roll on's to get a feel for it. Find balance point and modulate throttle to keep it there. With experience its initially surprising how vertical you can go.

    Take care with it mate, down 1T on the countershaft will make it easier.

    Ahh yeah i dont mind hurting the the r1 but trying to wheelie that thing still scares me. It does have a setting for the wet i thought about working with that but for now i have ordered -1 +2 sprocket and chain set from the states (hurry up post) for the r6 so that will be interesting.

    Cheers for the tips !

    Welcome to the madhouse Crab man
    As AG said it should be relatively easy with the R1 as you can just power wheelie it as opposed to the R6 where more clutch is likely required
