SV's aren't really much for highway wheelies. you might be better off with a chromed-out gsxr instead.

Drop down to a 14 in the front and go up one or two more in the rear. And you should be able to get 3rd. up pretty easy

14/47 AFAM here, you still have to tug on the bars to power wheelie in second, the wheel comes up easily but also rather abruptly, in comparison to the 15/47. You will be able to hold one shifting into 3rd, but I can't see hitting the gas in 3rd and standing it up, without using the clutch.


Please go with a 14/50, and let me know the results.

I think you can get an 11/83 from sprocket specialists in a 520 chain, you should be able to do wheelies with that ratio

Mount a couple BMX grind pegs on the rear axle and stand there, it'll come up all day long at highway speeds. You could probably do some really long wheelies totalling 250 to 300 miles before the lowerend lets go. :-\

<---- also a member over there... And really, stunting in traffic and other ways of acting like an idiot is pretty frowned upon outside the stunt forum over there, so... We're pretty tired of that stunting and posing reputation we get on other boards :mad:

Anyway, as far as I know, doing long wheelies on the SV is a great way of destroying the engine - oil starvation because the oil pick-ups aren't made to work in that position... ::)

Use the SV for what it's made for, backroads and tracks - stunting is for squids... ;)

Sorry to add to the rep, it was meant to be be a fun way of saying..... if you want to stunt, you should've gotten a bike that tolerates it better, use the SV for what it's made for. ;D

Why dont people do 100MPH highway stoppies? Passin cars in a stoppie would be way cooler than doin it in a wheelie. ;D I mean if thats what your into.
