1. First gear, 35mph.
2. Clutch in.
3. At the same time rev AND hold at 8-9K RPMs.
4. Dump clutch.
5. Rear break if you're scared.
6. Gradually apply more/less throttle in the air as you advance and go further.
7. I like to accelerate as I come down. This will prevent premature fork seal damage and tank slaps when the front wheel hits. Don't slam dunk the wheel lol.
This action should be performed in under a second realistically. It should be nearly as fast as rev-matching a downshift. It will take some practice. Some people can wheelie at 6K RPMs and others at 10K. It's all about finding what best fits you seating position, weight, and speed. Pulling on the bars can sometimes help with getting started but I find it distracting. Having one less thing to worry about can turn a bad unsafe wheelie in a decent looking safer one.
When in doubt... send it!
