fan the clutch at about 5-6k rpms, or

roll out briskly in first gear and at about 5k chop the throttle then immediately whack it back WFO as you snatch back on the bars

either of these will get the front end up in the air, its up to you what you'll do with it from there.....

Too much torque and too much weight! You could get squirrly in a hearbeat playing with the clutch at these kinds of rpm's in 1st or 2nd gear! I wouldn't want to risk it.

Go for it!

Don't listen to those who say its too heavy or whatever.

Remember, 5 grand and pop the clutch whilst you sit back on the seat.


But you must provide pictures. All attempts must be recorded on film.

By the way, where do you want your ashes sent? LOL

Yeh, and make sure you say, "Watch this" before you do it.

I wonder what this does to the life of the clutch, tranni, and rear drive?

All very expensive to repair. Still, if Daddy is paying for the bike, then that's expendable and you only have yourself and the ATGATT to worry about if you spill off.

When the front wheel is off the ground I wonder if that puts on the ABS warnings and disables it, just when it might come in handy if recovery goes wrong?

i always wondered about this: pull the brake, and it goes for all the front brake pistons and 1 in the back. tap the brake pedal however, it will only apply the rear brakes. thats what you need to control gas wheelies in the first place. maybe the K was intended to be a SQUID bike in the first place.
