THUG, Try a slightly slower speed for your second gear clutch ups while learning. I'd recommend for learning sit downs somewhere between 40-45 and increase your clutch RPM a little each time until you find what works best for you. It'll make your throttle control a lot less sensitive. Running stock gearing on my 13' my sit downs start as low as 20 so I know your bike has more than enough to do the same.

Your main focus shouldn't be how far you can ride or how high your front wheel is...just yet.

Focus on learning brake control.

Focus on training your foot to touch the brake pedal as soon as your front wheel comes up and using the brake to set it back down because once you reach the point of clutching comfortably to BP or slightly behind BP your brake is what you use to catch yourself. You can do this without reaching BP and it will save your ass and your skin later on...trust me...covering your rear brake won't do you any good if you panic and your not accustomed to using it pretty much instinctually.

Hope this helps...stay safe
