Popping the clutch on motorcycle?

I was looking at the stunthouston website and it made me wounder hmmmm I want to learn how to stunt. So I searched it :Popping the clutch on motorcycle?

I learned how to wheelie in 30sec by stay at a Holiday Inn Express....

http://www.wikihow.com/Perform-Clutc...n-a-Motorcycle

1.You don't need a very powerful bike. You can definitely clutch wheelie a 500 cc sport bike, it just takes higher revs.

*Stock gearing is fine, however, with this setup it can't clutch up in 2nd. You'll need a 520 kit for that. (To clutch up in second with less bouncing, try going -1 on the front sprocket, and +2 on the rear.
*If you buy these sprockets in 525 pitch, you will be able to change them and use the stock chain).
(Edit:The chain length will be correct, but you cannot use a 520 chain on 525 sprockets, or vice versa.)

2.Sit comfortably, upright on the bike. You don't have to slide back for this trick. "It is possible to clutch up a wheelie at 70 mph in 3rd gear on a gsxr-600." This will take more practice, but it is very possible.

3.Drive at a steady pace around 1500-2000rpm. (Should be about 10-20mph).

4.When you are ready for liftoff, quickly open up the throttle and accelerate. This is VERY important because it compresses your rear suspension. It's very difficult to clutch a wheelie without compressing rear suspension first. You're not trying to build up speed! Starting at low RPMs is very important. If you start a clutch wheelie at 5000RPM, it will be very difficult and you'll red line long before you go vertical. Power comes from low RPM.

5.Almost immediately after accelerating, pull clutch in enough to disengage and let the engine rev to about 6000RPM. You can do this slow at first, eventually it becomes an instantaneous motion.

6.Quickly release the clutch at about 80%. This is the hardest part. You HAVE to release fast. You'll know you released too fast when your RPM drops down to 2000 - this means you released too fast. Practice, practice, practice. When you get it right it will feel like you have hydraulics on your front wheel and pop right up (much quicker and smoother than a power-bounce wheelie).

7.Once you master this, your bike should be popping up a little bit. The next step is throttle control. While releasing the clutch, add throttle. If you want to go big - vertical - and stay there - the big thing to learn is that you can not let go of the throttle OR the clutch. You will control height of the wheelie with your clutch at this point.

8.So once again.. once comfortable with the clutch release motion, start giving it lots of throttle. You should be able to keep it up in 1st gear for a few seconds without any problems. The higher you go the longer you stay up.

9.Once you get good, you won't have to rev before you clutch. Do them at the same time.

I able to pwr it up in 1st but I get a lil nervous about the clutch popping/slipping thing.
I hear its safer to slip the clutch than pwring it up but Im a noob so that explains enough

well i would learn on a 50 if you are serious about it. because to slow down a wheelie on a big bike you have to go behind balance point so you need brake control before you step on teh big bike or you will just wreck it. you can jump off a 50. not so much on a big bike.
