Any lower in the front and more in the rear will help you.
Depends what type of wheelies you are trying to do also though.
I have stock sprockets and can do 1st and 2nd clutch ups.
Most stunters go from I believe stock 46 tooth rear sprocket up to somewhere in the 60-70 tooth area, Most common for a street bike is -1/+2

+1 to Jeff. If it's a stunt bike, start with a 60 in back or something. If it's a street bike, quit being a squid.

My bike is a little stronger then yours I'm assuming. when I first got it, I had to get up to about 40 and then hit the throttle and my bike would pull up. after I got a -1 sprocket put on the front I can pull up the bike in first at around 25-30 mph. just wondering how long have you been riding now?

You're gonna **** it up. It's a given. That's why stunters get crash cages and ride them naked.

You can't straddle the line between street bike and stunt bike. Won't work for either type of riding. Try to keep your bike pristine without putting in the effort, you'll suck at stunts. Refuse to accept that stunting thrashed a bike, you'll be pissed the first clutch replacement

+1

Also I'd like to add. If your new to the sport, you really shouldn't be worried about doing wheelies. Trust me you have WAY more stuff you need to learn about riding first.

Another thing too, If your doing clutch ups in 1st gear better be saving to be buy new fairings real soon.
