36 Front 34 Rear on the street. If you truelly believe you need lower pressures on the street then you should be racing at the track.

36/36 on the street, altho my M3 rear seems to prefer 37. At least on my gauge.

Lowering on the track is to counteract the pressure gained from the tires getting and staying hot. I don't know of but one or two roads around here that you could get them hot enough to need that.

36f/42r on the 1000, 42/38 on my busa(its an odd ball with it lowered and extended but this is what turns the best without the "fall in" into turns).

Most bikes I work on and have worked on turn and handle the best at 36/42. Now on a race track or SERIOUS street railing, I would go 34/36 or 32/34....anything less then that just causes sidewall deflection and squirm...
