It can be done.
There's a bunch of videos of guys stunting with bolts, they stand it straight up for so long they had to add an oil catch can.
If bikes dont wheelie easily under power for me like a dirt or sport bike does I dont bother wheelieing them. The SCR is long, low and heavy, its a lot of effort to get the front wheel off the ground.

I did a wheelie off a stop light a little while ago unintentionally like only 2 or 3 inches lol. I wound out 1st a bit, banged it into 2nd, let clutch out about 1/2 way then popped it and voila! That's what inspired me to ponder the thought of searching to see if someone had actually gotten really serious about it. 馃榿

If you want to wheelie the bolt/scr here's the drill.
Get rolling along about 5-10 mph in first gear, then compress the forks with your body weight while pulling the clutch and revving the motor to red line, dump the clutch as soon as the forks are compressed all the way and throw your weight back on the seat. It's all in the timing of getting the forks to rebound, aplying power and shifting weight to the rear, if your timings off you'll just spin the tire.

I've wheelied off a rail way track that was humped up pretty high in second or third gear it was hard not to lol.

Nice, lol. Wouldn't do it on a regular basis though ha ha 馃槅
There is a video out there of a young man who stood his wheel nearly straight up and for alot longer. I don't know where to find it now but the guy really loved his SCR.
