Default Wheelie Question

Now I know every bike is different and Im running a -1/+1 setup. What speed would you guys say is best for learning second gear clutch wheelies? 20-25? Or 30-35 or 35-40?

I always bounced my f4i up in second around 60mph pure stock gearing. Once you know the bike its easy and smooth though I learned over the years using many techniques and gearing, I prefered stock in the end. Here's a short vid I made before I got ran over and the bike totalled. It shows how fast and smooth it can come up once you feel comfortable on it.
