I run 28-30 on the track and 34-36 on the street. But it can vary by tire brand and your riding style, higher pressure makes the tires last longer but will not grip as well in curves if you ride aggressive. Less pressure makes for a stickier tire that will not last as long on the street. For me 34-36 is the best compromise and I run Q2's.

Well looked for the info sticker and just put air as recommended. I might just have to get a new tire cuz i might have a slow leak some where. First time i had to put air since i bought the bike and they put air in it for me. But thanks again for all your help and opinions. Greatly appreciated M.H.
