I really think it all depends on your riding style . If you like more or less engine braking really . I think I have mine in the middle setting for riding in the street . I like engine braking and with the quick shift down option i use it like a pre braking into a turn . It’s all personal preference and riding style dependent . I would suggest trying a few different setting and go and ride the same stretch of roads and see what works best for how you ride .

Using 3 (least compression) may save a bit on engine wear.
I would say engine braking would have less to do with engine wear and tear then it would on your clutch components and trans. More engine braking may wear down your clutch plates quicker but the design of the engine is to rev high and low very quickly . That’s my take on it and my way of thinking personally .

I prefer strong engine breaking, since I ride a lot in traffic in the SF Bay Area...
I think for a long road trip or light freeway traffic I would dial it down... but I do enjoy the lack of having to hit breaks hard to get to a near stop in and out of traffic.
