Yes it will and I have done it on my Bog standard 98 with panniers.

There is a knack to doing wheeeeeeeeeeeeelie's, I used to race a GSXR 1170 Yoshi special so I find it fairly easy to do on most bikes...

Just be carefull as it is heavy.

Yea you can get it to come up.............. but why would you want to? It's a barge.

On burn outs.................Be careful because the clutch splines are on the marginal side of the engineering tolerance. They do have a tendency to strip is abused....so I hear.

Check this thread about the problem.

Ah burnouts, just be careful of yer clutch.

Select 1st gear
Hold front brake on
Straddle your bike if you can ie: both feet on the floor

Open throttle and gently let out clutch, back wheel should start to spin, open throttle more and let clutch all the way out but, cover yer clutch with your hand just incase you let go of the front brake!

Find a nice secluded area with plenty of run off, let somebody know where you are going, just incase you loop it and knock yerself out!

Still want to try..........?

If you can, try it on a small bike first.!

1st gear.......accelerate and keep a constant throttle (high revs) pull clutch in and keep throttle open, lean slightly back, let clutch out, pull on bars at the same time and up she comes..........or not?

Now the trick is when she rises not to lean to far back or looooooping it will go, also standing on the foot pegs as per the picture is a good idea and then lean forward.

I can do this and change gear with the front wheel in the air, once the bike is up, throttle control is everything otherwise you will be riding a bucking bronco and it will look like you are trying to break in a horse lol.

To bring it down.........dab back brake........pull clutch in.....some people throttle off and some dont!

I WOULD SAY TRY THIS ON A PEDDLE BIKE FIRST AND THEN A SMALL MOTORBIKE AND SEE HOW YOU GET ON WITH YER SENCE OF BALANCE.

And be carefull.............good luck.
