If you are running a 200 tire on that, the tire is actually going to be squeezed tall as the wheel isnt really wide enough for it. What tire is it as well. I would suggest dropping pressure depending on the tire to around 32-34 psi to give you a little more contact patch. Also I can relate to the fear of speed on a wheelie while learning but in all honesty its harder to loop in second than first. You have to have more finesse in first as the throttle will be more responsive due to the low gearing. Also why clutch up in first unless you are going very slowly while you start the wheelie? 1st gear power wheelies are super easy to do and you are then factoring out one of the variables, the clutch. Be careful, wear all of your gear and remember, yut ugh!
