Matt, I think it depends how you ride, I'm from the Norton 850 era where 3000rpm was racing speed. I had a couple of F800s which had similar charicteristic and would tootle about in 5th at 3000. It was a dissapointment to find the F750 needed more revs and I have never really adjusted to it. On the few occasions I have pushed it to 7000 before changing gear it's a real rocket but not my style.
I know it's reving harder with a 16t sprocket but it gives me more overlap in the gear choice and allows me to run a higher gear ultimately lowering the revs without having to change down every hill or bend. I 100% recommend trying it.
