You either didn't read my quote or yours. You posted what they ran on three brands, not the others

The rest of manufacturers don't all give recommended pressures on their websites either. Often they defer to the motorcycle manufacturers recommended pressures.

Probably because the test bike wasn't a 600. I love my PP3's. Great traction and very predictable, but I've heard that it's ridiculously easy to make them step out on a liter bike.

Great to know! I've been planning to get a set for my Strom when my PP3's wear out.

You didn't read mine, I said that they were run at manufacturers recommended pressure. Just like the article and you. So we know what they are at you just have to do the leg work to get a number for a test on a California track and a Gsxr. Which did they even say what the weather was like?


Michelin gives recommended pressures based on track, bike, tire, weather and use. You can even select TWS (Texas World Speedway).

That's awesome if you run Michelin tires.

You never asked a question so what was I supposed to be answering.

Why Bridgestone tire do you run, I'll email them for you. Next I'll call whoop and ask what he suggests. This is for the street I'm guessing?

I know what two different Bridgestone techs have recommended to me. 36F/42R which just so happens to coincide with the tire placard Honda mounts on the swingarm. They also said that you could drop the pressure a few pounds for aggressive riding, but to inflate back to recommended pressure to extend the life of the tire.

That still doesn't tell me what pressures they ran in their street tire test.

Then I'll email the magazine for you, I'm sure they kept a record of what they did.

For me the mileage to performance ratio is fine. I love the profile also. They might not have done well in this test though. Probably the reason hardly any manufacture sent real street tires.

Well, it was supposed to be a street tire test. Not a test for the best pressures to run those tires at a track day

So you think they should have ran all the tires at the same pressure?
