whats better for my 750 1 down on the front sprocket and 2 up on the rear most people say thats the way to go for a little extra. but then a parts guy said just go 1 down in the front and leave the rear stock..........what do you think im lost at this point .

well how much more do you want to change your gearing. down 1 in the front will make a noticable difference, and 2 more in the back will make it a little be more noticable. use your common sense, for every action there is an equal an opposite reaction... haha

well if they were on a 600 or a 1k then its different. the trans gearing is diff on all three bikes. but im usually at 7k rpms when on the freeway, right in the powerband so i can dodge the shitty drivers on 96 lol

I have run both, and I agree with the post above, that it isn't a huge difference.

The biggest change is noticable in first gear. Stock gearing, it would come up slowly in first at wide open. -1 it would come up a little quicker at full throttle. -1/+2 it will come up almost every time above 60-75% throttle.

Either way, it will be ok. I think I'm running right near 7000 rpm at 70 mph with the -1/+2. One thing to consider, is that if you want to save money, you can just purchase a -1 front in the stock 525 size for around $20. If you are going to swap out all of the parts, go with 520, and go ahead and do the -1/+2.

Just an FYI, Kawi uses the same front sprocket design, in case your Suzuki dealership doesn't have one in stock...
