I have a 02 cbr600fi and it was lowered about 2 to 3 inches i can get the front wheel up in 1st by cracking the throttle or by poping the clutch with no problem but in 2ed it don't want to come up as much. I'm just wandering if it is harder to pull a wheelie on a lowered bike than a stock bike?

Sprocket13: is the front lowered as well as the rear? If its just the rear thats lowered thats why....but if she uses it for more daily riding and canyon stuff as opposed to stunts, you may want to lower the front, it will make it steer more neutrally. (as opposed to one end wanting to come around the other)

I would say get used to your brand new 06' first (unless your pro) before starting to wheelie it..Don't want another post in the crash, boom, bang section about a 2 week old rr down...

But to answer your question...It's a little harder than other bikes because of the mass centralization (that word doesn't look write, and like other things I probably spelling wrong, lol)...Take it slow and ride safe..

As far as I know you can't just lower the rear, besides being wrong your handlebars will hit the air ducts.

Raise it up. Unless u need the bike lowered because u are short, it's absolutely unnecessary.

Um, that totally screws with the geometry of the bike. There is NOTHING "works fine" about that.
