Power wheelie fail..why?

Ok so I just started doing my first power wheelies, because slipping the clutch in 2nd I am not comfortable with, I just want to get the feeling of the front end getting light..question is; I am around 165 with gear and I found that it takes my bike a good stretch of road and the thing is screaming in 1st before it comes up slightly...I thought it would come up easier..? and also does the cooler temps play and role? thanks.

you dont need much road to power wheelie.... just let off some and roll on the throttle, dont chop it for your first few attempts... if youre not comfortable try it in second, when u let off the forks will compress some and then roll on the gas and she'll float no problem... 1st i pull it up about 25+ and 55+ in second, she'll come up just a bike in 3rd but i dont do wheelies much at all.... dont want to have to worry about rebuilding fork seals anytime soon...

Get the RPM's up a bit before you gas it.
Learning this technique on anything but a big street bike would be a better idea. If you have access, learn on a dirt bike!

Go around 35 in first, chop throttle to load up the forks, and then give it a nice throttle grab - it'll come right up. Be careful, first gear is choppy so you need good throttle control. Start small!

What's your elevation?

I just spent the past week riding my '12 1krr at sea level. After I trailered it back home to Montana (about 5000 ft elevation), the difference in power was VERY noticeable. I lose about 13.5% of stock power because the air is so much less dense here.

So the reason I ask, is because the bike would power wheelie without trying at sea level; but at my current elevation, I have to put some effort in for a power wheelie.

This exactly. I used to think the same thing until i tried chopping the throttle and the front end came up like I drove over an IED
