If I recall correctly you want to be something 24 or 26. I never ran Pirellis but I think that will put you in the ballpark.

It depends on the brand of tire you are using. The new Michelin Pilot "Race" (not the "Pilot Power" track day tire) like 22-24 lbs. in the rear and 31 in the front. Dunlops favor 30 front and rear (as do the older style Michelin M2/H2/S2's).

I don't know about street tires.

Hijack!!!!

I generally run 36/42 in my Diablos for street on ZX9R. That's recommended pressures. Any reason I shouldn't be doing this? Seems everyone here generally run less than recommended pressure.

on the track you usually drop it a couple psi so they heat up faster and have a little more surface area to grip. But for street riding, go with the recommended tire pressure.

Since NESBA sells Pirelli, the folks there can give you the exact pressure you need to run.
