Cool Stock Bobber lifted to a wheelie?

Anyone seen a stock bobber pull a wheelie? I wonder if lowering rear tire pressure for full contact without spinning tire on rim (maybe 25 psi) and without twisting tube, TC off, weight as far back as possible if we could pull our bobbers into a wheelie?


Maybe a solid link to replace the shock is needed?


Power is there to spare just wonder about the geometry of the bike. Mine, on full hole shot wants to lift the front end.



Thoughts?

Dunno about the Bobber, but my SM goes very light without trying in the traffic light grand prix without any effort, and without nailing the throttle

If it has two wheels, I can wheelie it. I'll have my GF take a pick this weekend. I've not wheelied the BB yet but I'm certain I can make it happen.

NOTE: Don't get your expectations too high... its a blobber, it won't be like my 150mph power wheelies at Roebling Road that could be done on the 1299 Panigale.

I accidentally did a wheelie once. Can't remember the bike. It scared the crap out of me.

I think you've got more chance of lighting up the back tyre, But I'm sure it's possible, should look quite amusing.

Oh don't worry, it'll be worth the wait. It's been raining everyday here, and there is a hurricane coming, but soon I'll get a vid up of a dank wheelie (not on a public road, FYI). It'll look like a public road, but it's not.
