Got a bit vertical today

Was riding with my danger friend today and got a bit vertical, probably biggest wheelie I've ever done LOL.

I accidentally dumped the clutch the other day and the front popped up about 2 inches, that I was about to see that white light in the sky for a moment. Sweet photo btw.

Do you need sprocket mods to pop a wheelie on a 300? Or do you just rev it crazy high and dump the clutch?

Stock gearing

My fav method:
- Complete stop
- Get to about 10~15km/hr (cover rear brake and make sure your traveling in a straight line)
- Clutch in to 8~9 grand
- Dump clutch and go WOT (usually you can get away with this - if it starts getting too high ease off on throttle and/or use rear brake to put her back down)

my clutch play is adjusted to the point where I reach friction point about half way instead of right at the top of releasing the clutch. It may just be a preference thing, but I find it helps with doing big wheelies.
