Traction control setting

where do you set your traction control and why? Is the setting in any way depend on the weight of the rider?

1 most of the time 3 if it's wet.
Off when attempting - and failing - to wheelie.

Mine has been off since purchased new. Wanted to get well acquainted with the feel of bike without any nanny interruptions. Especially during back road spirited outings. However , it's good to know I have it when and if any unplanned wet conditions arise.

1 95% of the time, 3 if it's wet, OFF every now and then just to see if it's different than 1 (not much).

I just leave mine in 2 almost all the time. I don't want it to be completely intrusive, but I also don't mind extra safety just in case something unpredictable happens (sand or leaves in the road, etc). I only ride in the rain if I get caught by accident, and in those cases I do switch it to level 3.

I ride in the rain a lot and stick it on 3 in those conditions. I run 55 profile Michelin Road 5's and to be honest, I'm not entirely sure how much it takes to make the TC light come on. On the 50 profile OEM D214's, it would come on all the time on setting 3 in the dry when pressing on in the twisties . On 55 profile Metzler 01's, it hardly ever came on and it's probably a case of not even noticing now. In drier conditions, I normally leave it on 2 apart from sticking it on 1 for a track day session. Didn't seem any different from 2 but that's probably because I run out of talent way before the bike!
