The particular bike you own was never made to pop wheelies (none of them were, but a sport-touring especially). You can change your gears and such, but around here we believe in keeping 2 wheels on the ground. Please, just make sure if you're going to stunt to do it in a parking lot or on a closed off road.

try holding the clutch, revving the motor, and letting the clutch go about half way. It'll feel like a kick in the pants, but I've seen a EX250 wheelied, so i bet the zzr-600 can too. be careful, you can seriously hurt your self.
I offered advice. Anyway, good luck

I always joke, wasn't ment to make ya mad. Hell, I pop wheelies on my 500 almost daily (well, as about as good a wheelie the 500 can pop)

yeah, if he was referring to your inability to spell, well...maybe he has a point also, maybe some education whether it be general as in high school or vocational as in motorcycles should be required.

I'd say learn to ride properly first then go onto a flat parking lot and see how it feels to do wheelies, better that than to get "criticised" by all your friends for falling on your ass because you only had 1/2mm patch of tire touching the ground and ended up breaking your tailbone

P.S. I just saw a guy try a stoppie and he got rolled over by a relatively large sport bike so I'm in a little soapbox mood, hope nobody minds.
