For some reason I CAN'T get the Grom up in 2nd gear. I can ride wheelies in first gear for days, but can't get it up in 2nd gear. My bike is stock, including stock gearing. Do I need to go down to a 14t sprocket in the front to get it up in second? I'm sick of doing wheelies at 10-15 MPH when I could be doing them at 25+MPH. Any suggestions?

You can sit back further in your seat and pull up harder but you guys are both right, swapping to a 14T front sprocket will help immensely.
Only a few other things I can think of when you're setting up for 2nd, slow down a lot so you have more room before redline. Sit back pretty far, and yank like a mofo!

Even when you shift into 2nd, you better bring your A game cuz there is no power to chase the front end up if you let it dip a hair too low.
