It's an fxr. Their shocks are mounted farther back.
There's no top secret setups for doing wheelies. That's probably why nobody will tell, cause its funny when people that can't ride are always asking. Knowing how to ride a wheelie is the first step. I suggest you start on a bicycle. Then move to dirt bikes or quads. A little extra power and gearing definitely helps but you don't need a ton of power. Huge power is just cheating. Anyone can wheelie when all you have to do is twist the throttle. When I bought my bike it had stock gearing, mini apes, 12" shocks and made 88/93 and I wheelied the **** out of it. Now it makes 96/96, better gearing, sticky tire, dx shocks and bars and it wheelies like that's its job. I clutch it up in 1st or 2nd get it on the balance point grab 3rd and feather it out to the rev limiter, about 85 mph. Still working up the ***** to grab 4th. 120mph wheelies are one thing on the buell but It's a little different with 650 lbs in the air. Oh, and always cover the brake. These guys actually use the rear brake and keep it right on the balance point. They can bring it past the balance point, smash the taillight and tap the brake and keep going. A little above my skill level for now Haha.
