I've never found the balance point either, but that's because I don't wheelie my bike

It's probably just you though, there is plenty of vids out of there of people on Daytona's doing wheelies for good distance.

There was a guy with 675r who posted in a thread that the bike was not as easy to wheelie compared to other bikes he had. He posted a video and said that it required more effort.

This is one of the many reasons we don't care for squids. Do you research, poor choice of bike for wheelies although like anything, it can be done.

Maybe your mohawk was throwing off your aerodynamics?

If I wanted to keep doing wheelies with a good bike I woulda just stayed with the cbr. It was a simple question .

meh, dig around. I thought the same thing here in memphis where i live. Didnt find a track but there are some great roads if you are willing to ride about an hour. If you still cant find any, you have two options:

find a little cloverleaf you can ride (i just bust u turns after the corner then go back through it)

Get about 50-100 of those MSF small cones and setup a small track at your local high school or church parking lot. Cops come by and i just say I'm with the MSF prepping for an "advanced rider course" (which they actually have).

A few months ago some douchenozzle stopped in on his litREbike (no helmet, shorts and tennis shoes) and asked what we were doing. we kindly explained and pointed out his MASSIVE chicken strips. After about 20 minutes of goading, he finally rode through (very slowly) and actually took down his chicken strips an inch or so lol.


if neither of these work for you, you bought the wrong bike....
