The ZING-ZING method, ala' Gary Rothwell
A variant on hitting the gas hard and slipping the clutch with 2 fingers is to pull the clutch all the way in, and zing the throttle hard twice in succession, as fast as you can (not all the way up to redline but definitely up around 9-10k) letting the clutch go right in between the two zings. My old CBR900 and 929, and my CBR1000 all come up like magic in 1st gear at about 20mph this way. 20mph is fast enough to realize gyroscopic stability, but not so fast that I'm s__ting a brick about going down at high speed. This technique keeps the back tire from spinning out/losing traction. The opposite of gunning it with the throttle in and dumping the clutch, which almost invariably breaks the rear loose if you're in 1st.
With ZING-ZING you have the momentum of the engine all spun up, but the tiny space in between the two zings keeps the rear from braking loose... everytime. If you take too long in between the two throttle hits, it doesn't work. The second throttle hit really makes a big difference because you are increasing the gas at the moment you're loading the engine with the task of lifting the front end.
I was paying close attention Gary Rothwell's technique during one of his old "Showtime" exhibitions at the Poconos, and ZING-ZING is how he would bring his bike up routinely from 40mph, perfectly to balance point. Of course his bike was geared and he didn't have to zing all that hard.
