First question is... Are u staggered or setting down? Staggered is the only way to learn. I have been stunting since 04 and taught numerous ppl how to ride wheelies.

I wouldn't worry about the clutch. That's more for starting out slow. U want some momentum to learn so it keeps u straight. And don't tell me it won't pick up without clutch! Proven to many ppl wrong. LoL try 2nd gear it will give u a smoother float back to balance point.

I was always sitting when I tried it, that may also be a big part of the problem

They, dont let you, its more like a place where you can get away with it (A..), but every one knows it.

I would like to find a new spot where I'm not worried about others, and I can practice with think I look like a jack in front of a big group.

The bike has plenty power to pick up the front (, even flip all the way over backward) sitting, standing on the pegs, staggered whatever. I liked learning by just using the throttle, as has been described above. Accelerate, roll off the as to settle the front suspension, then roll it back on - smooth and quick.
Practice until the front comes up. Keep practicing until the front comes up high and the bike settles in at balance point as you don't feel like you have to keep on and off the gas to keep it up - it should just balance and "float". From there practice standing up as the bike comes up, and after you're comfortable with that start in on the clutch. I don't like throttling up in 2nd because you can bend the shift fork.

+1 don't let these people pump you up and make you do sumthing stupid pulling out the clutch at high revolutions, take it easy when your first starting, not every one that posted on here know what the they are talking about. I seen sum one get pumped up by the wrong crowd and eat it infront of everyone. It was actualy preaty funny but it could have been prevented.
