tire psi - March 20, 2007, 06:30 PM

how is it going people. question about tire psi. the used bike i just bought had 26.5 in the front and 36 in the rear. im going to put 36 psi on both. do you guys think that is good for street riding. 120/70 180/55 gixxer 06 750

i have not been able to ride it since i bought it so im just ajusting the contorls and suspension right know. im waiting on some oil i ordered to do an oil change before i get on the street. thanks for your input

Cold pressures:

My VFR runs 36F and 42R on the street.

On the track it runs 30/30.

YMMV.

i like the feel of the stock tire recommendations of 36/42... but i usually run it a little lower to keep the back tire from moving around so much with ruts and stuff


'04 CBR1000RR and lots of Volvos (and now a new Tundra for hauling them around when they all break)

Depends on what you like and the temps.

36 psi in the rear sounds a bit high...

Streetbike I run 32f 34r sometimes 32f 32r (2004 R6)

Trackday tires 30f 28r (cold)

Race - tire dependent and track dependent and temp dependent and then I adjust on feel

Motard I run 26f 28r

Chico I think you have those backwards...track (depending on what tire) you should run 30f 28r

The front doesn't get as much friction as the rear so you typically go with a lower pressure in the rear. Of course, you have to consider bike setup as well...

Bro you should know my set up cause we rode together last summer on da Street remember!!???!!!

No bro. on da track I always run high on rear cause I do power slides like ROSSI and I need the higher tire presure on rear cause it feels good doing them
