Safe to dryburn?
Is it safe to slightly dryburn this wire (Ni80), just until it glows dull orange?

Yes. Well, as safe as dry burning anything is, anyway. It's nichrome (which should be abbreviated as N80 rather than Ni80), not Ni200 (nearly pure nickel).

Great, I was curious about it. I only dryburn it until it glows dull orange (@ 10W, 3-4 secs). Enough to burn that gunk.

N80 (a.k.a nichrome/nikrothal/Ni80) is absolutely safe to dry burn. Relative safeness is comparable to other "safe-to-dryburn" materials like Stainless Steel or FeCrAl(Kanthal)

It is Safe to dryburn but i dont recomend to do it.
because you lose in taste with dryburn. the taste will be lost much faster with dryburn. especially on a thin wire.
I recommend just rinse wire in ethyl alcohol and and then build a coil with Kuro Coil

I don't understand that. Taste should come from the liquid, not from the wire. If you dry burn a wire, doesn't it heat up properly anymore afterwards?

On the contrary, i've noticed my kanthal coils (which i tend to run cool) perform way better after a certain amount of dry burning

After the first geentle cleaning burn usually
