Lightbulb Beginner wheelie trouble !

Whatsup everyone so I'm new to this site . I have an 05 636 zx6r that I have been riding for a bit now and have been trying to practice clutch ups . I am doing this stuff in industrial areas where there are no people and cops since I live in a highly populated city . I can get the power wheelie up when I hit like 20-25 mph and then let off the gas and real quick snap it the bike comes up no problem . I am now trying to figure out how to clutch up . I Started on a ninja 250 and in order to pop that up I had to rev it up to about 10rpms and just drop the clutch . Now what I'm doing with the 636 is holding the gas steady about 10-15 mph, pull the clutch in and raise it like 2-3 rpms and let out the clutch but all I seem to get is me being lunged forward and the bike not really popping up . I have a GoPro mounted to the front of my helmet so I can record what's going on too just wondering if I'm not giving enough rpms when I pull the clutch in or what ? If anyone has any tips or anything that could help me out that would be great thanks !!

There are a lot of question/threads already related to your question. Maybe ask the mod to merge your thread with all the others. This video below is imo one of the best on the interwebs.

peeps gunna gove you shit, just be ready.

that said, a lot of people say you need to "pop" the front. Compress the forks and then pop the clutch so it helps it pop up. really, just give it more gas. just be ready for a 12 o'clock meeting with the pavement. it'll happen, theres far more power under you with a 636, if you pop it, it might just pop to much.

cover the rear brake, bace yourself, pump the front and drop the clutch.

I appreciate the help thanks everyone. And it's all good people can talk shi* it doesn't bother me lol . I watched that video quite a few times its definitely one of the better ones . I agree brevillance and sbk i was also thinking more gas when I pull the clutch in and then drop it . I just know my power band is at like 7 k rpm so not sure if I were to accidently rev it up there in first if its gonna loop or what the hell it will do haha.. I'm trying to be able to pop the bike up while only going like 10-15 mph.

Think of it like baby steps. Start slow and small and build up from there. Just like taking a turn at 80 plus somewhere. I used to not be able to do that.
Now I can very easily, and that feels slow to me. Maybe it's just how my brain works, I don't know. But as with anything. Knowledge is power.

Nice ride. I like it. Just be careful with your ride. You might want to pick up a cheap beater to learn on first. Something you don't care about wrecking or crashing.

I eventually will get a liter bike just trying to get experience with the smaller ones first . I know every bike will pop up even a mo-ped scooter lol just takes practice. I want to get a cage or at least a side rail because I know it goes down easier than it goes up

There is another thread about this Wheelie Business. I have commented on it. I can Wheelie really well. Some day I will glorify myself and post a video. Ha Ha. I'm camera shy. Jk. I stand up on both front pegs. Roll the bike in 2 ND gear, holding steady at approx 7k rpm,. Grip the bars on the clutch side and use two fingers on the clutch to feather it out quickly but controlled. When the bike comes up.you are standing and you need to use really good throttle control so you don't go over. Use your torso as a balance weight to keep from going over. Throttle control and clutch control is key. An slight uphill road helps. Be careful. The balance point is way up there. Slowly get to it. Slowly. Fuck all the haters. They are just jealous.
