Angry what's wrong with my bike???

I was riding today with some friends when I tried to wheelie my rooster.I get 1st gear power ups with no problem.can't power up in second or clutch it up.Had two of my friends(experienced)try to lift my bike in second clutch and power,neither suceeded.my bike is completely stock from what I know.this wheelie thing is fustrating,so fustrating I went about 35 or45mph and pulled in the clutch and banged the rev limiter and popped the clutch!!!no wheelie for me,or my two experienced friends who both wheelie their bikes no problem.what's wrong with my bike????someone help!!!!

put it on a dyno and find out what kinda power it is putting out. If it is putting anything around 100hp then your motor is good, if it is down on power then you might have a compression problem.

sounds like the clutch is taking a beating. may be slipping.

Luckily changing the clutch plates is relatively easy. I did it for my Hawk Gt, and it was a kit with stiffer springs and I believe kevlar plates. Is there a kit like that for the SHawk?

at first I thought I was doing it wrong until I had two different people try one owns a gsxr1000 the other owns a tl1000 both of them have no problems with wheelies on their bikes.I have personally witnessed wheelies over 90 mph for a quarter mile stretch of highway when they are on their bikes.so mybe I'm doing it wrong but both of my friends know exactly how to do it.like I said I was in second going about 35 to 45 mph grabbed the clutch throttled to the redline and dropped the clutch fast.I kow you don't need to redline to wheelie but this confirmed that there is something wrong. All I got was a slight jerk as did my friends.my skill maybe in question but theirs isn't .they came to the conclusion my bike only comes up in first.after spending 10 minutes each on my bike trying to pickk it up I did see some nice 1st gear power ups(bike stayed up until it hit the revlimitr) I can do first gear power ups no prob.so I understand the concept of doing a power wheelie,mine just won't power up in second or clutch up.

What's your gearing (ie. Sprockets sizes) ???? Anychance isn't geared for top end and therefore your losing a bit of the lower end torque factor?

try this sixth gear low revs goose it. if revs pick up but bike doesnt gain speed, your clutch is prob. fried.

There should be a stamping on it.... if it's stock, it should be 41. Any number lower than that would be adding to the problem. (This most likely not the problem, as most seem to feel it's your clutch, but it's worth the 4 seconds to look at the number on the rear sprocket to rule it out).

I see a 41 on back sprocket but I don't have the tools to remove the cover off of the front.

i thought it just took a socket set to remove the front...should always have atleast that if you own a bike. but then a torque to put it back
