42psi if you have a passenger. I normally run 36-38 psi rear and 34-36 front on the street. This setting is when the bike tire is cold i.e. in the am. When you ride, it would increase 3-4psi. The rpm, it is a sportbike, which means it is design to rev. I rev way above that rpm in third at the track.

Thanks for any useful answers.
Always always trust NO ONE about tire pressures but the tire reps. You have access to the major brands, trust the experts not someone who heard from a friend who heard from a friend. Pirelli did a study of their Warranty claims for a 2 year period. 70% of all claims were due to under inflation.

Tell us what brand and type of tire you are running and we'll point you to the right person.

First off, get new tires that match. Then start from there.

I agree, I'd get a matching set of tires first off. There are plenty of tire sales going on all over so there should be some sweet deals to be had. I'd suggest (obviously) the Bridgestones or the Pirellis. I like to run the softer (more sporty) tire up front with a more of a touring tire (harder) out back. That way you get the confidence in the sticky front and the longevity of the harder rear tire. Most modern tires are multi-compound so the harder rear actually has some good sticky stuff on the edge. It is a good combination for most street riders out there.

Correct pressures? That's simple - look on the sticker on the frame or your owner's manual.

Yes, the manufacturers really spend a lot of time determining the correct pressure. No, the dork who mounted them is not a design engineer....

Proper pressure is not determined by what the sidewall says as the tire is designed for multiple fitments. It is determined by a variety of factors including GVWR of the vehicle.

Different tires from the same manufacturer is fine, 2 different tires from 2 different makers is not recommended. Dunlop Q2 are pretty good. Ran some for a year. Trying Michelin Pilot Pure this time.

Set your tire pressure when your tires are cold and always the same pressure no matter what the outside air temperature is.

The owner’s manual, service manual, swingarm placard, and two Bridgestone techs say I should run 36 front and 42 rear for normal street riding and that's what I have mine set at.

Two different tires from two different manufacturers is perfectly fine. Where it gets squirrely is mixing bias on the rear and radial on the front. The other way around is not only perfectly safe, but original equipment fitment to some bikes.
