Honda CR500. 4-strokes don't even come close!

Don't know about the 4-stroke bashing thing. I can wheelie my YZ250F until it runs out of gas or I fall asleep (which ever comes first).



Most, if not all, motocrossers are dead simple to wheelie.



As for streetbikes, any 1000cc sportbike will wheelie very easily.

I have a CR500... my third in 6 years... wheelies are almost too easy, even in 4th gear. But my built-for-tight-enduro XR250 is much easier to hold wheelies on... the engine is much more predictable and lacks that 'now-it's-time-to-go-to-the-moon' hit.

Honda VTR1000F is pretty easy... Flat torque curve and a rearward wieght bias makes it simple to balance and modulate the throttle anywhere in the rev range. Clutch it in 2nd or bounce it in 2nd or 3rd for all-day stand ups..

XR650L...if you can't wheelie this bike you need some serious seat time.

Default DUDE, I'M STOKED YOU AXED ME THAT

AS SOON AS I WUZ AN EXPERT RIDER (AFTER TWO WEEKS) I COULD PULL MILE-LONG WHEELIEZ ON MY GSXR1000. NO OTHER BIKE, IN MY OPINION, COMEZ EVEN CLOSE, AT LEAST I DON'T THINK SO, AS I'VE ONLY RIDDEN A GSXR1000 EXCEPT WHEN I RODE MY COUSIN'Z MINI BIKE AROUND A DIRT PARKING LOT WHEN I WUZ 8.



ANYWAY, I CAN'T PULL MANY WHEELIEZ THESE DAYZ SINCE I'M STILL JUST A DISEMBODIED BRAIN FLOATING IN A TANK OF CHICKEN SOUP AT THE MAYO CLINIC. MAYBE SOMEONE CAN STRAP MY TANK ON THEIR TANK AND PULL SOME WHEELIEZ FOR ME?

My thoughts exactly. Any big bore, single, dual purpose bike will wheelie all day in 1st, 2nd, & 3rd with no effort or technique required.

Without doubt the easiest to wheelie will be something like an XR650R or the like, ...especially if it's on stock gearing!
