Do you have the PAIR system installed still? Power is not that big of deal.Weight is a big issue. I was thinking of FMF cans. How do they sound and do you have pics with them on it?

Personally, I would not ever crack the motor of a Honda product. I believe you would lose reliability. The mods you have done are good ones. If you want more power from a V-Twin sportbike, buy a Ducati. Or buy an Inline 4 to satisfy your craving for power. Just my opinion

If you want a wheelie machine, go up two teeth on the rear sprocket!

Am I reading this right??? Your 5'7" and weigh 130 and wheelies are hard for you??? Your bike might be broken if it won't wheelie for you easily. I'm 6'2" 220 and I have no problems popping it up. I'm not a big wheelie guy but I don't have trouble raising it. I agree change your gearing and if your still having problems buy an I4

sounds like a squid and we are about to lose another rc51 to the dumbass stunt club. RIP RC51.

if you want to wheelie get a bike made for that. Suzuki GSXR, R6, R1, CBR. NOT A RC51, this bike was made for racing, NOT STUNTING.

Well, I don't race my RC. That must make me a dumbass! I don't wheelie it either. I have never been able to do wheelies on any of my sportbikes.
But if some one does occasional wheelies on their bike, I have no problem with that. As long as they not endangering anyone but themself. I doubt he dented the tank in, added a 12 o'clock bar,and rear brake lever. Most people that own an RC51, know they don't make good stunt bikes!
