At least it wasnt UNDER inflated. I had a Michelin rep tell me that he would rather see tires 10lbs over, than 1 lb under.


I always told my techs the silver loctite is the best!






That's an easy way to test them. LOL.

On a motorcycle tire? I agree with that for car tires.

He just said the structure is designed around that pressure, and there is a possibility of failure at any pressure under the sidewall pressure. I was suprised.

After that, I never ran my pressures low. I am always 2-3 lbs over.

Car tires, I run lower pretty often. (same ~2 lbs high for commute, up to 5 lbs low at track).

didnt you crash because your front washed out, too much psi?

the brand lists the recommend psi for their tires on their website, or you can check with a reputable tire vendor like whoop, dont go off with what the frame says because tires are different. not a lot of people re buy the OEM tire that came with the bike

Michelins do not keep the shape very well when you go under recommended pressure.

No, not because of too much PSI.

I've got OEM tires on the HD.

I've got emails from Bridgestone techs for recommended tire pressures on sportbike tires. Thanks for the advice, noob

Sucks for other riders when you rear end them in the pits

Well his dumb fault for stopping. Shouldn't have gotten him a free trackday

And youve posted it before a while back saying how you always go by what the bike manufactor recommends for tire pressure.

Yea, if using tires recommended by the bike manufacturer and for normal riding. That's what Bridgestone techs recommend too. They also recommend dropping the cold tire pressure some for aggressive riding, but to bring cold tire pressure back up for normal riding. I've posted that too.

Were you speeding in the pits? Was it the wind's fault on Racer's Road?

You park your bike in the pits or in the paddock?
What? There's other vehicles on RR? That's a shocker.

Well smartass, the 3 year old BT-015 was at 34psi hot. CraigRR witnessed me checking the pressure that day.

FYI, Iíve purchased 3 new CBRs in the last 4 years and tire pressure on or off the track has never been an issue for me.
