Tire Pressure

I'm sure this has been covered somewhere, so bare with me. On my 1000RR with the Battleax tires, what would be an appropriate psi when running hard on the street? This past weekend I went up to WI for some curvies and couldn't get any lean on the bike, she felt stiff and basically uninterested in leaning what-so-ever. Just wondering what the masses like running on their rides. I'm not concerned with extending the mileage on the tires, but rather with performance. Any help would be appreciated.

responses will vary greatly, but probably somewhere between 32 and 38 for street duty.

if your in that range and handling is still poor look to suspension settings or testicle size.

Any idea what to run on Bridgestone BT-002's? I think they use the usual 30/30 or 31/29 but I'm not 100% certain.

Adrenaline junkies may enjoy competing in extreme sports like skydiving, surfing, motorcycle racing, or anything else that gets their heart rate up. This sort of addiction is brought on by enjoying the (adrenaline) "rush" gained from these activities.

You should be able to run what the manufacturer recommends. The little Japaneese guys in the white coats probably put a lot of time into tuning the stock suspension for those tires. So I wouldnt say the bike would fight you to turn. How many street miles are on the tires? If its in the 3K-5K range than the rear is more than likely 3 sided, that would explain why the bike doesnt want to turn.

Thanks Wingit, apparently my tires are just too low for how they should be. Going to pump them up (Arnold Voice) tonight. Thanks

You should have been fine at the settings you were at. I rode most of the day behind you guys during the highway sweepers and passing. You guys were moving pretty fast. It wasn't til the county twisties that some of you slowed down. I waited to see how some of you would do before I moved up toward the front. No offense but I think it was the unknown road with blind and tighter corners that slowed you down. I was right behind you for awhile and observed that you weren't using much body positioning and you slowed down alot when entering the turns. I was pretty hesitant too when I first took my new bike up there. It can fill your day with pucker moments at speed. Anyway I was on power race tires on my buddy's R6 at 31/30 and my wife was running 33/33 on her pilot powers.

Wish I could help but I am old and slow and have tooo much bike to even begin to worry about PSI - I just keep mine at what the factory recommends - When I get good enuff to worry about it, I'll worry about it

Good luck kid!
