I'm to chicken to do anything but 1st and 2nd power wheelies
Use either of your first 2 gears at low speed to bring the front end up to the point of where you feel it almost going over backwards, while covering your rear brake, chop the throttle and let it come back down, rear braking if necessary. After multiple tries in a low gear move up to third or fourth and find that sweet spot again. You'll be shocked how much easier to control it is at speed.
My WR's will lift the front ends in fourth with nothing more than a handful of throttle and a little tug on the bars.
BTW, never think about getting hurt and ending up out of work. Ride to the limits of your ability as often as possible and you'll become a better rider as you become more accustomed as to how your bike, and you, will react to obstacles and situations that present theirselves to you at higher speeds than you may normally ride.
