Easiest speed to clutch up in 2nd?

I have an '08 1000RR and recently started clutching in 2nd, what's the easiest to speed to hold it up at for those who stunt the new bodys?

For me is around 45, rpm between 4 and 5. I'd start with 4 and gradually go up

uhh. go down the road and do whatever speed feels good.
anywhere from about 30 to 90+mph will work.. probably easiest around 60 or whatever speed puts the tach needle in around the 10 or 11 oclock position.

Any speed should work in 2nd gear, but depending on where the rpm's are sitting will determine how much throttle you will need before you pop the clutch. for example if you are in the powerband of your rpm's you wont need as much throttle than if you were riding at 2000 rpm.

For me, easiest around 60-65 mph in 2nd gear.

2nd is pointless to clutch up big dog, go with 3rd and 6500 rpm and clutch away or try 4th (standing up in 4th) and clutch at 7500-8k rpms

No it's just easier and if you can't find the balance these gears will last longer, I'll wheelie from 2nd to 5th shifting I'm just trying to help this guy so he doesn't loop it
