What did I see?

I got behind a dude doing wheelies, he was on a Gix 600. I saw him down shift to 2nd then crank on the throttle then it looked like he let it go then cranked on it again and the bike lifted effortlessly. I asked him if he bounced it and he said he clutched it. For whatever reason I cannot get my bike to lift more than a couple of inches in 2nd.

What do y'all think he did? Thanks.

The R1 is the absolute easiest bike to wheelie, if you cant get it up in second, you need to go back to first until you can figure it out.
