Release clutch to friction point, add about half throttle (I get to about 6-7k rpm) and release clutch until you feel the tire break loose, then let off the clutch and burn away! Dumping the clutch right away tends to make the bike buck and it might get away from you.
Instead of cheating against a wall or curb, find an area where you can put your front tire on pavement and rear tire on dirt. Should break loose much easier and let you get a feel for it.
find a storm sewer grate and a bungee cord, fasten front wheel to storm sewer grate, the bungee will give you enough slack to feather the clutch without stalling the engine. wear a cowboy hat.
Have a buddy with a camera standing by and post the video here later.
