Hi dear Kawasaki brothers.I have a serious problem.Well pretty soon , a few months ago I bought Kawasaki Ninja 600cc (GPX) - produced 1997 december.I like the bike very much, it's very fast, goes well and everything is just fine, except one thing.I cant lift it on it's rear tyre, I mean I can't ride it just on one tyre.I even gave it to some pros.He said it's a little bit hard, when he switches from third gear to secon it almost reaches it's criticam and maximum rpm and he just lifts it for a while but after that it falls back.Please give me advice, may it be from the tyre it's width is 140, the maximum is 160, chain, clutch or anything else.Please advice or I shall stay disappointed. ;)

A smaller front sprocket, and a larger back one would do it, but its also going to kill your gas mileage and top end. I don't believe stunting should be done in any situation except a closed course, and even then I leave it to somebody else. So just keep it safe and off the road.

ONE WHEEL?

I'd agree with most everyone on the board that a street bike is MEANT to have BOTH tires on the ground at the same time. There are some green bikes for off road that are literally AWESOME and FLY... If you are having trouble keeping the rear tire from spinning then I'd recommend getting a serious ZR rated tire that is made for some serious riding...they may be sticky and wear out fast but they will grip the road so well that they will actually steam when you are riding in wet conditions and stop to look at them. They will wear out pretty fast. save the bike for something made to fly...you can buy a dirt bike fairly cheap and try all you want to abuse it...they are made to FLY and take abuse that even your body won't be able to handle. Kidney belts, and full body armor...they're made for a reason!!! I've been over the bars a couple times on a Dirt bike and somehow never managed to break anything... KEEP the rubber on the road when it comes to 300 pound road bikes though...they're expensive to fix!

I know it's kinda' cool to pull hte wheel off the ground but when youhave that much weight and that much power it's even cooler from watching it to see a sportie perhaps pull it only 3" off the ground as it fights it's way down a straight or coming out of a corner powering it on to get a jump on someone else ahead of you. Go with sticky tires if you can afford them and they won't let you DOWN! Stay on the board and keep us up to date with how things are going where you are!!!
