I have a 09 R1 and I'm not a top speed guy that much, I always rock it up when wheeling, which size sprocket would give me smooth easy up wheelie?
I want to rock it up around 6-8k RPM's, can you PLEASE give me your advice!!

This will depend on what gear you tend to ride in and how fast you are going. Both of these will have an affect on gearing. The stock R1 has a 47t rear sprocket. Going to a larger rear sprocket or smaller front sprocket will help shorten the gearing and allow the bike to rev faster. Exactly what gearing you need will depend how much change you require for your riding style.
