Did my first 2nd gear clutch ups!

I did my first 2nd gear clutch ups, felt kinda scary but I'll get used to em. Anyways I'm here to hear from you guys. How you guys progressed and learned. I have a 2010 zx6r stock gearing(16t:43t), usually going 40-50mph ~9k rpm, slip the clutch and put a little gas... Feels a bit daring but everytime I do it, I do not know how high it'll lift and kinda guess and ride it out. I usually let off the throttle every time it lifts cuz I ain't used to it yet Any tips you can can give me to hold it or start off better? Should I be going slower(mph) or start at lower rpms? I got a buddy learning with me on his r6 with 2nd gear clutch ups and he asks me all the time why am I at so high rpms slippin the clutch bcoz he said he can lift it up at 5k rpm(2010 r6) stock 16t 45t I believe

Yut-uuuuuugh!

Sadly if I ever get a beater bike that I don't care about and find some free time, I will have to go through this myself.

I can beat 95% of the people on a racetrack but I cant do a clutch-up to save my life :-p

Why.

I'm with PainfullySlo.

My wheelie buddy, who WAS very good at doing them doesn't any more.
Why, the one that got away from him. Low speed, tried catching the bike, him with his right leg.
YA, 8 hour surgery re-building that leg. 8 months of PT and 2k in damage on bike.

I had watched him clutch one up, ride it for over a mile got bored and let it down nicely.
Only takes one bad off. Your body will remind you of it for the rest of your life.

Go to the track.

Not gonna sit here and tell you not to do wheelies. I'm assuming you're a grown man and can make your own decisions. With that disclaimer out of the way..

2nd gear is my favorite. Usually around 35/45, I'll clutch in, rev up (I don't look at the Rpms, I just listen and make sure the blip was aggressive), and dump the clutch. Bike comes up, and I usually just wait till I get high enough and then gently roll off. Usually I can just coast at BP with gentle blips of throttle. Back brake has saved me dozens of times when I bring it up to quick or too far back.

Biggest word of advice is gear up and get a cage, subframe brace, clip ons, and sturdy axle peg sliders. That, and practice slower. Don't chase. If you didn't get it high enough do not chase it out. Just bring it back down gently. Get familiar with that back brake and just try and find a lot, please.

Pretty much as Eraism said, Gear your bike down one tooth in the front, it will helps a lot. Approx. 20-30 mph, 6-7000 rpm( I listen to the motor ) and a good feather of the clutch and it comes up. I stand up on the pegs and find the balance point. It is easier to move your body weight when standing and it also gives greater effect if you go too far back, just poke your head or upper body forward and the bike will fall forward rather quickly ( no back brake for me). Steady throttle hand is the key and of course balance. Never have looped a street bike, Famous last words, Right. I don't think I ever will loop it. Whatevers........

When you're standing, are you staggered?
