Cold weather tire pressures?

So I'm doing MSR Cresson on Sunday and I think its going to be a little cooler.
I'm running BT003 front and BT016 rear on my SV.

Should I run the pressures I normally run? or should they be higher or lower heading out?

the weather is cooler, so I would run it about 2psi lower than summer heat reccommended pressure. I would check it with kawi jm, your local Stone man.

Actually Level5 is about right. I'd start out 25 front & 20 rear cold...i.e. around 50 deg F. Check them hot off the track, I'd check them after the third session 32 front & 26 rear. Call me from the track if you have any questions (281) 703-0296

Sweet THANKS!

I thought about shooting you a PM but wasn't sure you'd get it before I left [here in about 30 minutes]

No those pressures will be too low for the BT002 Ride Smart. Try 27 front & 26 rear cold (around 50 deg F). If you have warmers set them on the warmers after 40 minutes, 30 front & 29 rear.
