Try this....get going in first at about 30mph(50kmh) then close the throttle and then quickly snap it open hard at the same time give a tug on the bars. That should get her up,try to keep your arms bent and not to tense,grip the tank with your knees and keep your right foot hovering over your brake peddle just in case she comes up to far. If she does,apply the "REAR" brake and bring her back down.Practice this some were away from traffic and wear your safety gear!!. Good luck to ya! :thumbup

yep, 50kmh in first, shut throttle then SNAP it open again, she'll come up.
REMEMBER to keep that back brake covered though...........

Don't use the clutch to go up the 'box when on one wheel, you'll flip it!

Ya! you can do power wheelies,its pretty hard on your clutch though. Makes it wear out a lot quicker.:dowhat
Would rather wear out and replace the clutch than the gear box itself....either way, wheelies are hard on your bike, but the Kawis are built pretty tough, so unless your stunting it everyday I wouldnt worry too much about it.
