The sumps in all modern bikes are at the rear because of the hard accelleration these bikes are capable of. You should be fine for wheelies.

For the most part you will be ok. The faster you go the lower the front is, so each gear the front gets a little lower and therefore less of an issue. Keep an eye out for the oil light, if it doesn't come on you should be ok. Still, long wheelies are not the best thing for the bike overall.
