How do I get it up?

So I have finally started practicing wheelies on my GSXS and I feel like first gear clutch up is rather easy(Practiced for like 4 hours today). But I can barely get the wheel more than 6 inches off the ground in second and third gear wheelies are non-existent so far. For those of you that like to do wheelies on this bike, what is your advice for second gear and third gear clutch ups? How are you doing it? What rpm, speed, tips? I wear full gear while practicing on empty roads and understand the risks of wheelies. Just looking for advice from those that have mastered the art of the dank wheelie on this beast. lol

You can't change genetics, and anyway getting it up six inches is still perfectly adequate.

I should be so lucky! Can't get it up at all these days, probably to do with that other thread on having no snatch.
@dfossati , excuse the obvious question but have you got Traction Control off?

If you want easier wheelies you need to change your sprockets to lower your gearing.

Ruined for all other riders, you mean?
