STUNTing Tire Pressure

This being MH i know im gonna get a lot grief over this but im gonna ask anyways,

Im a noob when it comes to stunting, but im starting to do a lot of parking lot practice, a friend told me to drop the back tire press to 20-25 psi to increase the "tire-to-road" surface area, i just put on new tires both front and back and im wondering how this is going to affect the "overall" handling, i only have the one bike and i use this bike to commute to work as well...

Do i have to drop the front tire press as well?
Any input?

May want to mention what tires your running. But those pressure as far as commuting will too low for most street tires. As far as stunting I'll wait for a stunter to chime in.

your first pro is that you got a 750 ; sell it (i know it will be hard but sell it if you really wanna stunt ) . Now that you sold the 750 pick up a newer cbr, 636, or f4i ... get back at me after you do this

Remember, when doing wheelies you need to hear a sound like Yut uuuugh. If you cover the brake you should be fine

For stoppies your rear tire needs 27 psi
