3rd Gear Wheelies '02 R1

The last couple of times i tried to wheelie in 3rd gear, my back tire spins and doesn't catch. I've tried clutching it up multiple times between 65-80mph and still nothing. I'm riding on some Pirelli Diablo's and i recently added a couple performance mods: Velocity Stacks, BMC Race Filter, Yoshi RS3 tri-oval exhaust, and PCIII USB. I have no problem with getting it up in 2nd with or without the clutch, but 3rd is another story. Should i try changing my riding position before i wheelie and getting more weight towards the back? should i try to rev higher before releasing the clutch? or what? help a fellow R1 rider out with some of the methods you use to wheelie.
