OR, EVEN BETTER - straight from the FAQ's on Dunlop Racing website: http://dunlopracing.com/technical-info/#TP

Tire pressures for Q2′s? And do I use a tire warmer on them?

If you are riding on the street, read your owners manual for recomended tire pressures. If you are riding on the race track, a good starting point is 32 front and 32 rear. Warmers are optional, but if you choose to use them, you can get tire warmer recommendations here http://www.dunlopracing.com/Warmers.pdf

Keep my BT003RS at 29f / 28r everywhere

I ride like hell anyway, might as well keep the base pressures low

Most of the MFG recommendations I believe are a little on the high side, maybe for safety purposes?

I think it is because those MFG recommended pressures are based on the max rated load capacity.....

thread is a good remind. went out to check my TPs and come to find out my gauge is out of calibration from when it got dropped. then checked with an ANSI grade-A gauge attached to a ball chuck. They were both 10 lbs high

make sure your instrumentation is in good working order

I am now running 32 front and 34 rear with my Michelin power pros. When they are warm they are at 35 front and 38 rear. That is for the street.

Diablo Superbike sc2 all around on my 848 and always run 1.9 bar in the rear and 2-2.1 in front...very close to what the pdf says. sc1 rear for I4 bikes since i find the duc will generally tear the rear up quicker at some tracks.

Never found the limits of grip (using tire warmers of course) and tire life is good when the suspension was finally dialed in properly.

people say i run my pressures pretty low on mine for the street but i use 28f and 32r and found that to be the best to get the tire warmer quicker and it sticks like glue for typical cruising through twisties speeds, you just lose a couple hundred miles in wear and be careful with craters on the roads lol....it really comes down to what makes you feel secure on the road and weight of the bike and rider together also makes a big difference with pressures that should be used.

I usually run 38-38 front rear. Pilot power pure is what I usually run. On the Dunlop gp209 they felt fine at 32-32 on the street. It's the weirdest feeling to feel the bike be sluggish and two corners later the heat builds and the tire feels fine. But even with those I ran 38-38.

rc,

Most riders have equal or more pressure in the front then the rear. 28 in the front seems a bit low for the street (for me). When you reach faster speeds it will feel sluggish on turn in. If you kick it up to 32, the tire will give you better response and feel at increased speeds.

Have you ever had a flat tire while riding? The ability to turn the bike goes to zero. It's the same basic principle if you run low psi in the front (similar to a flat). The tire, at 28, isn't flat enough to severly effect handling, but it's also not inflated to the point to give you the max feel from the tire.

This one trackday I did there was this kid on a brand new RSV..i asked him where on the track his tire blew out? He said"it didn't, you don't know less air equals more grip" I replied oh ok. And that set the tone for the day.

wa11er, you do have a good point....I have gotten stuck riding back on a flat a few times with the o so wonder track quality roads of NYC lol...definitely don't do stunting with this bike and most of my riding is done on back roads as much as possible. some how I feel like I have a more secure feeling on the road in the 40-60 mph range when I go over slick spots or sand then when I had the tire at the recommended 32f 36r. maybe I'll play around more with the pressures to find a better combo
