I currently have a Ducati 998.  When I bought the bike i asked the salesman if there was anything i should not do on the bike.  He said no.  I proceeded to wheelie the bike like other bikes  i have owned(r6 r1 rc51).  While riding one day I noticed oil leakin out of the airbox(I am no pro stunter but i can wheelie to about 11o'clock and ride for 1/4 mile on the 998).  The first thing the Ducati tech asked me was if i wheelied the bike.  He then proceeded to tell me what had happened.  Lesson learned right.  I still whellie the bike but try to keep them short.  I just bought a Ducati 1198s.  Am I going to run into the same issue on the new bike?  In all the tests of the 1098 motorcyclist talks about wheelies and how easy they are on the 1098.  Is it ok for me to wheelie the piss out of the 1198 after proper break in of course?

At least two mistakes here:

1) You asked a salesman a question. Ask a mechanic

2) You're probably a squid. Save your *** for the track. If you've never been to a track, you should give it a shot.

If you insist on getting a bike to wheelie, you should probably stick to Japanese.

Just so there's no confusion, because I sense a trend here:

1) I love Ducati motorcycles.  That is why I own 2.
2) I have never bought a bike to wheelie it, but wheelies  part of sport bike riding.  I dont need to wheelie when I ride but it is a rush and great fun.
3) I dont see an answer to my concern, I think I would be better off getting advice from a salesman than you.
I have been riding for 20 years and got my first ducati 2 years ago.  Just was a bit upset when my pride and joy stated leaking oil.  Like I said, I dont need to wheelie to have a good time on my bike.
I wasnt looking for some smart ass comment.
See you at the track!

From my experience, bikes work best on two wheels.

Thanks,  but that doesnt really answer my question either.  With 170hp it may be difficult to keep both wheels on the ground at all times.  If you have any actual insight into my question I look forward to reading it.

Buy a bike that won't piss oil when you wheelie it?

You bought the wrong Ducati.

Get a hyper and wheelie/stoppie the *** out of it.

Do you have a Hyper?  It doesnt ever spew oil after extended wheelies...
