As I was watching the video, my wife asked from the other room: "Honey, why do you keep yelling "SHIFT!" "?
;-) have you ever grabbed another gear during a sportbike wheelie? The red R6 has a wheelie sprocket setup which makes it whine like it's about to explode. A few of the GSXR wheelies were coming up high enough to sit at balance point without chasing it.
Both of these guys are new to wheelies. The Russian on the R6, Klim ... has only been doing them a few days. (though he has a lot of experience on bikes) And Tommy, the GSXR rider, has only been riding less than a year.
Considering those factors ... I think they're doing a hell of job.
