I wouldnt recommend power wheelies in first -- thats just me. Weljo's video is someone who is well trained to be doing just perfect wheelies in 1st gear -- but that is with the clutch.
The V wheelies with ease. I prefer 2nd gear clutch up. Find an empty parking lot or something -- please dont attempt on an actual road.
Move into second gear - get steady around 25mph - Pull clutch in - rev to 6k at first - pop clutch, watch bike raise a bit (keep your foot on the back break - and hit it if scared). Get comfortable then move to higher revs (7k -8k etc).
Dont try to be a champ -- start at lower revs then work your way up. You dont want to be the guy in the video above you looks to have clutched it in first gear or something ridiculous.
It should look something similiar to the video below:
Givi Tall Windscreen, Givi Top Rack and Case, Givi V35 Bags and Mounts, Givi QuickLock Tank Connector+Bag, Oxford Heated Grips, Nuvi 550 w/ Ram Mount, Barkbusters Full Wrap + Storm, Motowerks Flatfoot, Spools and Tank Protector, Bobbed Fender, Grip Puppies, 12v SAE Socket, Packjack, Airhawk 1 (med), Scala Rider G4, Contour Roam2
