You're MUCH more likely to hurt a shift fork by powering up a sport bike than you are to damage a clutch by clutching it.

That said, I found it much easier to learn to find BP by throttling it up and from there I started practicing with the clutch. BUT, I did bend a shift fork chopping the throttle to lift a heavy- bike up in 2nd gear.

By clutching up a wheelie you're going to find the bike at a much lower, more manageable RPM when you get to BP than you would by using the throttle.
I'd be curious to know how a shift fork gets bent by powering up a wheelie.
Who told you that chopping the throttle in 2nd gear bent your shift fork?

That makes no sense. No offense, I just don't see how that could happen unless some shifting was taking place. In which case, it wasn't "powering up" a wheelie.

Running up to 45-50 in second, chopping the throttle and powering the bike back up. 2nd started slipping under acceleration after that and finally would get no drive in second at all.

Split the case to take a look and the second gear shift fork is fubar.

Turns out to be a very common problem on gen I busas, resulting primarily from abuse of second gear, especially when launching wheelies wrong. Hundreds of similar experiences to be read about on hayabusa.org.

I won't argue about it but I'm pretty sure shift forks are under no load unless you're shifting.
Chopping then hammering the throttle, while putting no load on the shift lever should put no pressure on the shift forks.

Found sweet spot in 2nd with stock sprocket. Knocked a tooth off front sprocket and now I just can't seem to find the right combination of mph, throttle, clutch, and seat position. Prob just over thinking it.

I have stock gearing, I can do 1st gear or 2nd gear wheelies, sitting down or standing up. Highly recommend a steering damper
