oh S#$%! too hard meaning the tires would slip right from under me? WOW, thanks for forums like this...i figured i was doing the right thing because it's what the manual says. Maybe that was for stock tires?
I mean as long as you don't lean over very far and put too much stress on the tire your not going to crash or any thing and you will get 50,000 miles on the tire! LOL.. but if you find your self aggressively riding or in a panic situation your going down with tires that hard.
I checked mine the other week 'cos it was feeling weird, the back end was squirming around a lot. I had 32 front and 33 rear, according to the book it should be 36/41, set it to those pressures and it felt so much better.
I think low pressures are fine for the track as you're generating more consistent heat.
i think it depends on the tire. Also from what i read...
on the track its ideal to have the pressure set at 30-34 and for street riding 38-44ish. Also depending on your tire... track oriented tires i belive are ment to flex more to put more contact area on the track and thus the lower pressure... for more street oriented tires/riding i read that the higher pressure is better for milage and the such.
I am not a very experiance rider so i dont know for sure... just what i have found out on my own
im running ct's and they are 37 front and 39 rear and i ride the twisties 3 to 4 days a week on the way home and they are grippin fine and turn in great just a touch bumpy so might drop them a touch and see if i can tell the diff
yeah i think it is down to what ur comfortable with and wherther ur after grip or mileage, i've always run them at 36/36 and never had a problem with grip and get a fair few miles , i did try 36/42 after looking in the owners manuel and i low sided on a roundabout :banghead
