Power Race tire pressures

What's an appropriate track tire pressure (cold) for pilot race tires. No tire warmers.

I did search to no avail.

Thanks.

I had a Power Race rear tire and it was set at 26 psi cold. It wore pretty well at that pressure. I didn't have a front power race, because I only got the rear due to a flat on the track, so I ran a mixed set for a while.

It would help greatly if you told me:

Exact model o the front and rear... We have 31 different current "Power Race" tires. Also what you ride and if your suspension is stock or aftermarket.

2lbs can make a huge difference on a rear.. that is 10%.

In case you are wondering I'm a Michelin Race tire distributor.

Aren't there two different kinds of Power Race fronts. I forget, because I don't run them. But they have very different air pressures. PRC or something like that.

Sorry I spent the last two days at Mid-Ohio..!


These are cold pressures

Front 31
Rear 23

In mid-day those pressures will increase... check you HOT pressure IMMEDIDIATELY after a session and bleed them down to Front 33.5 Hot and 25.5 Hot Rear.

Monte, I just sent you an e-mail before I noticed this thread.

How about tire PSI for a CBR1000RR running 2CTs?

Heading down to the smokies for the week. You gave me 36/35 for my VFR running Pilot Powers and that worked out very well for me.

If you ain't with us, then it's just bad news.

All of our current DOT race rears are low pressure.

The PRC is a front that is an excellent tire but is not much different in PSI requirements that the PR1/PR2 Soft or Medium-Soft..etc.

Assuming a 190/50 or 190/55 on the rear..?

Go with 34 front and 33 rear (assuming you are trailering down)

Yes, for this bike, trailering down. And it is a 190/50.

Thanks!

These have a few laps on them. I have heard what you are saying, but so far on the street they are much better than the battlax bt014's that came on the bike. As far as fairly cold grip.

I will however take plenty of time to warm them up per session. Thanks!
