Pops out of second.

My bike popped outa second gear 3 times this morning. It's an '05 SV650, anyone know if this is a common problem with them, or do I just need to find second a bit harder?

Not a common problem on that bike, could be the shift fork is bent. If it's an '05 it should be still under warranty.

I shifted into second, got back on the gas and it pulled for a bit then ~ sblam ~ 10k rpm and I'm in neutral. And two more times it went to neutral right after I pulled the clutch while going slow in traffic.

Yeah my warranty is good for 4 years, but how the does a shift fork get bent?

Forcing it into gear, wheelieing and shifting from 1st to 2nd if you're not smooth.

Should I watch out for the amount of pressure I put on the lever? I think I push up kinda hard because I hate missing second.

not sure about your bike but it seems that second gear is always the one that goes.
Most get on it hard between first and second.
should be under warranty.
I changed out my 2nd gear problem this past winter. Mine was actually the shift drum and shift fork. the drum had a piece broke off giving the fork too much movement
I had to remove the engine and split the cases.

first thing the dealer is going to think is that you've been wheelieing.
