Michelin Tires

Anyone ever gone to Michelin's website, punched in their motorcycle info and see the recommended tire pressure? It's given in bars but easily converted to psi.

The tire pressure they recommend is according to the specific bike, not the tire. What was the recommended pressure for your bike?

I need more mileage than I've been getting out of my T-30 rear so I'm giving the Road 4 tires a try.

It says 42 psi in the rear for my bike. No way I'm going that high, though. 33/33 is what i've been running for a couple years.

I never run less than 36 in the front. Even Motorcycles Unlimited recommends that. Your front tire doesn't get cupped?

Why would I use a recommended tire pressure from a Micheline site for Bridgestone tires?

Because Bridgestone is going to tell you to go by the bike manufacturer's recommendations just like Michelin does

Bridgestone is the OEM tire for my bike. My swingarm placard reads 36 front/42 rear for Bridgestone tires, regardless the number of passengers

When the front is way down just about the wear bar I'll notice some uneveness at the grooves just off the center of the tire. Maybe I'll bump the front up a little bit. But I usually go three rears for every front though, even by then the front's are just barely to the wear bar.
