I cant power up in 3rd, but I also do wheelies sitting down.
I want to learn to do them standing up, but i'm 6'2 and it feels awkward! haha maybe i'll buy some rear pegs and it wont feel as awkward

I use to power wheelie but as said above, before you know it you're going way too fast and have to bring it down. Now I do mine in 2nd gear at about 30-40mph and can ride out the rest of the gear in it. Im also interested in making it last longer but after reading the side effects, I think I may stick to my existing method. Working for me just fine.

Well if you decide to change your mind, I've realized patients is the best way to go about it safely!

What is your RPM when you clutch it @ 65ish ?

Sprockets make a huge deal! That's prob why, but I can pick it up from anywhere from 60 to 90 if I want, but I like doing it at lower rpms and slowly letting the speed increase, but I want to be able to ride a wheelie and keep it at the constant speed..

What year is your bike!?
