3) If you are near peak torque it will most likely spin the tire because your forward speed is taking away leverage.

The sweet spot for me is 2000 RPM. Steady 2000 rpm and open the throttle it'll come right up (and over if you're not careful). If you want to do this with a bike making less power try the on-off-on with the throttle and use the suspension action/weight transfer to give the front end a head start toward the sky... Correct rpm, timing the power hit... you have to practice and get a feel for it... no one can tell you how to do it, you can't learn in from a book or an internet forum.

My grandson (10) and I have dirt bikes. He started riding my 125 recently and he asked me why he couldn't wheelie like I do... "You're going too fast in that gear, relax and slow down". He asked why he can't slide it around corners like I do... "You have to pin that throttle open ^HERE^ in the turn and hold it open".

I told him he has the skills, what he's missing is the ability to 'feel' and 'hear' what the bike is saying... and the balls to turn off that silly survival instinct. Now he can powerslide it all the way around the turns and ride a wheelie in 1st and 2nd. He'll hold that throttle in it until it's on the ground (he low-sided it like 30 times). It's a beautiful thing to see him grow a pair of stainless steel balls and become a rider.

Getting caught doing a wheelie here in MD is 6 points against your license (12 is all you get). Better do that stuff on private property or out in the sticks.

Had a State Trooper stop... thinking he was going to write me up for doing wheelies up and down our 1/4 mile driveway. I told him it was private property, he maintained it was a state road. He asked who plowed the snow off the road and I said "I do". He started lecturing me about safety and I cut him off... "It's my property, I can do whatever I want here as long as I'm not breaking any laws". He left.
