Hi all

A forum would not be complete without a thread on tyre pressures ! Lol :D

Any thoughts on the best pressures for these Diablo Corsa shoes ?

32/34 on the street and 30/30 on the track.

^^^ and air temperature.
It's been around ~ 40/44 degrees for most of the week here in Oz now so need to also factor that in when checking pressures.

I mentioned 30/32 to the dealer I got my 899 from on Saturday, the owner insisted I run 32/34. He said that works best with the OEM tires on the 899.

For those of you that didn't mention it—hot or cold tires?

i run mines at 2.5 bar which is around 36 on both tires. i am confused as the manual and the tyre pressure on the bike listing are different from each other. but the pirelli manufacture says run em at 2.5 bar so tats what I'm doing (these are all cold tire pressures)

On the street I use 32 front and 34 rear on both my 899 and 1100 EVO regardless on the kind of tires. On the track I use 30/30.

The problem is on the track your hot tire pressure will be different between 2 different riders depending on how fast you are, how many laps you put in, your riding style, etc.... What I have always been told is that you want to gauge your hot tire pressure immediately after you pull off the track and out of harms way- don't even take your helmet off first. The increase in pressure running hot laps might be significantly higher than your cold pressure. On my 848 I would easily go from 25 psi cold to 31 or 32 psi hot on the track.
