    I'm running 42 psi in both front and rear on Pilot 2CT's
    I know that's  the recomended pressure for the stock tires . Would a couple of pounds less help handling?

    What are you guys running?

    I currently run 36-38 psi on my PPs and they work very well.

    I run 34 front and rear.

    The Michelin factory trailer at the track recommended 32-34 for aggressive or track riding.

    *shrug* I think alot of it will come down to the "feel" you want back from them and how hard you are riding.

    air pressures in tires are opinions... and opinions are like bung holes... everyones got one right... that aside... i run 38 front and 41 or 42 rear... anything less than 40 in the rear tire for me and i feel like i'm sliding the back end around... not kosher to me...

    oh and i'm running dunlop qualifiers...

    36 front and rear on my PP 2CTs. See what they feel like at the Gap. Can be squishy around twisties here. Not a lot of good twisties here. The Gap will provide plenty of twisties and I'm hoping the tire pressures will come up some and eliminate that soft feeling.
