Re: tire pressure for 929 01?

I would think its what they put on the tire. I run what the tire says, 44psi.
But I was actually wondering the same thing, is there a better pressure to run for maximum grip? Hopfully somone will have some insight on this topic.

Re: tire pressure for 929 01?

Don't wanna cause any crashes but I always used 31psi front and 36 rear. for both road and track on all my bikes. Only do this with sports tyres, Rennsport's or similar and don't take passengers at these pressures.

Cheers D

I do something similar. If it's spirted street riding, 33/35. Highway riding 34/36. For the track I used to run 31/30 or thereabouts, but I've learned that the Pilot Powers and Diablo Corsas should be run higher, so on a hot day it's 34/34.

Re: tire pressure for 929 01?

Man.....I guess I need to let a little air out of mine then. I've been running 44psi in both front and rear. Is there less traction at a higher psi?

Maybe it's different in the UK - standard pressures here are 36 / 42.

Very different for road and for track, and totally dependant upon which brand of tyre as well, and wether you carry passengers, not to mention ambient temperature, wet or dry.

I use Avon Viper AV59 and AV60 Supersport for road and track, for solo road riding in the dry I use 34 / 35, for track use on a dry warm day 31 / 31, and alter as and when needed, good suppliers of tyres for track riding will probably advise much more for track use, whilst monthly magazines here in the UK advise on road pressures when they print their tyres tests.

On Diablos: 34-36

Re: tire pressure for 929 01?

isn't the 40+psi the max pressure of the tire?

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

Manufacturer's recommended pressures are 36psi front and 42psi rear.

Floating around here somewhere is a thread that contains an article about the great tyre pressure debate and the decision of manufacturers to build bike suspension and tyres to a standard set of pressures....doesn't mean we all stick to it, but its a start point.

My preference changes a bit with the weather, but for general road riding I like to run 32 front and 34 rear.

On the track I use Abtech's suggested 20% increase measure, ie: tyre pressure should increase by 20% by the end of your session (say from 30psi cold to 36psi hot) - don't ask me the math, but it has to do with the temperature range the tyre achieves during the session...apparently a 20% increase in tyre pressure indicates the tyre has approximately reached it's optimal operating temperature.

Using this method, if my tyre pressures have not increased by 20% at the end of a session I'll drop a couple of psi out of them and test again at the start/finish of the next track session.

Cheers, Spanky.
