Rebel 300 wheelie

Ok, so potentially I should have gotten a sport bike...but I want to be able to do a wheelie on this thing. It has the same engine as the CBR and essentially the same weight. Has anybody done wheelies on these things? I know in the revilla review video a guy does a quick one. Anybody else tried to do either a clutch wheelie or a power wheelie? How has it gone? Any tips?

I prefer keeping both wheels on the ground.

Haven't gotten on my rebel yet so I can't be 100% sure but I can imagine it'll be tough because of the design. Hey, best way to find it out, get out there and crank her back!

That's funny, I let my friend who rides a harley iron 883 ride my Rebel 300 and his first comment was "I feel like i can easily pop a wheelie on this thing if I wanted to!".

I on the other hand am way too paranoid of dropping my new bike in the attempt of doing so lol.
I'll leave it up to someone else on this forum to give it a go on their own bikes.

I honestly would be worried about the forks. They are so soft you will likely damage them doing wheelies even if done correctly.

Not only that, but the straing on the bearings for the stearing isn't good either.. Might not "die" from a wheelie or two, but still..

There is no tach to even know where 7 grand is. But I can tell you on my 500 in first gear I was rolling about 5 mph and just cranked the throttle wide open and nothing. So then I watched a video some guy said in second gear go around 14mph clutch it and rev it 4 grand and dump the clutch, but that was for a CBR 500. Well I did all that and reved it up to a point that sounded scary to me and almost made think twice but determined dumped the clutch off 2 fingers and still nothing. Perhaps we need a little more detail as to what gear to use and mph speed. But I also imagine someone whos never done a wheelie before would lack the break and flip it or over brake and slam it, both unforgiving condition I don't thin any one could tolerate. I would just feel delighted if I could at least get a little 4-6 inch popup to begin with.
