7k and mine comes quickly and easily with the snap of the throttle.

You throttle it to 7k then release the throttle to slow down a bit then throttle it again ?

Sit all the way back in the seat. Run the bike up to about 6500 RPM go WOT the front end will come up around 8000 rpm. I have a 2010 though. First gear will come up sooner.

First thing why? Just use the clutch smoother an lower rpm. Then again just my two cents.

+1. Clutching up is more controlled, and a lot easier to modulate.

I've tried to clutch it up in 2nd and I can't get the hang of clutch and throttle, it just jerks forward, I just started to power wheelie to get the fear out of me when the MOTO raises and it feels easier because I use the powerband to raise it. For 1st I take off to about 5-6k rpm then let of the throttle a bit to let it go back down to 4k and throttle it again and the front comes up easy.
