What gearing are you guys running on those 749? I love my mid-range but haven't found that magical recipe just yet. Any suggestions?

I run 14/38, 525 chain. Made the change at the first service back when the bike was new as it was geared way to tall for my liking. Only ride on the street so I can't be of help for the track.

14/38 works well on ehs749r's bike but it has a different transmission primary gear ratio(2.11) than a 749 (1.84).

The equivalent to 749R 14/38 on a 749 is 14/43, that I also recommend. You'll need a new 100-link chain.

Good catch Shazaam; I should have mentioned that. Really enjoy your insights;have read a lot of your work which has been particularly helpful on my 916. Thanks.
