Wheelie with 93 Katana 600

What is the best technique for me to go about popping a wheelie with this bike?

I've tried reving hard in 1st, letting off the throttle to load the front end and reving hard again, but the best I can do is about a foot off the ground. And that's with an empty gas tank and sitting far back on the seat.

Thanks.

roll about 5 mph, sit all the way back, lock out your arms, pull in the clutch, crack it to the rev limiter, and dump the clutch. I promise it'll come off the ground!

In reality though, it's not really a good bike for wheelies. But that actually is the way to do it... just don't actually rev it to the limiter.
