Said by this guy:
If you don’t have 100% traction at the rear wheel, then it is almost impossible to control a wheelie in the first place, so I don’t think an increase would hurt anything.
I think it is more likely due to the fact that he just got done revving the crap out of the engine and was all jacked on adrenaline to be able to use the fine motor control and balance to pull off the wheelie.
Additionally, I think it is much harder to pull off a wheelie from a standstill, most of the successful ones I’ve seen are executed while already in motion.
Disclaimer: in my 15 years riding experience, I never once wheelied. Almost everything I know is from watching MotoGP on the TeeVee.
