Let off at 6k then try 6.5k see how that works

I was actually practicing earlier for 20 min or so. 2nd gear slipping clutch at 5k to 10k and let off. It feels better than a power wheelie

shoot, i run it up to like 10k in 2nd and just bounce the front, hit the gas and boom its up but its not as quick as 1st so its a bit better to control but if you dont hit like wot throttle , then it will just creep up a little bit then hit redline and fall

lol..... slippin the clutch is easier and less abrupt if you do it right IMO
also less wear and tear on your chain and sprockets, cush drive...ect
also gonna let you whoolie at a slower speed.

cruise at 4-5k in second. pull clutch lever in. rev up quickly to around 10k and quickly release clutch. at this point you should see sky. once picking it up is mastered then work on the bp and rear brake control.

Be careful man, that's not only a good way to jack up your scoot and your self, but the popo take a VERY dim view of wheelies on the street.
I could be wrong but I believe they now call it "reckless endangerment" which carries a penalty of up to felony level.

* always cover the rear brake. *

when i learned power whoolies, i was suprised how much a difference it made to scoot back on the seat an inch or two.
