Okay, I'll help you out...
Don't dump the clutch, feather it out and keep your RPM's about 9 ks....
When I launch I come outta the hole at about 8500-9000 rpm (any more and she gets the front end up), then I come of the clutch fairly quickly while rolling the throttle on hard, I'm usually wide open by 3/4 clutch release. Not enough gas (rpm) and too quick a clutch release= engine bog (you feel it get slower in the seat of your pants), too much rpm and a quick clutch release and you get a wheelie or wheel spin. Anytime you let the clutch out to slow your only wasting precious time.
Get the balance right and you should blast away from the starting line (maybe hang the front an inch or so) and progressively feel it pull harder as you let of the clutch/increase the throttle. You should hook up at about 11,000 rpms (which is the beginning of the powerband) place your feet on the pegs and get ready to shift the rest of the way.
