Re: (section8superbike)

Jason,
This is on topic ... kinda .......

The 05 999's come with Pilot Powers , it's my first time using them.
My current PSI's ( as set by the dealership ) are 33 Front/38 Rear HOT.
It doesnt feel right.
What PSI's ( hot & cold ) is your Rep recommending and what do you find best for street use with these tires?
I know there are alot of posts about PSI for these tires but I trust your info , it has worked for me in the past on numerous occasions.
Thanks.

Re: (hearing8)

Thanks Hearing8.


The bike felt spongey , like the tire pressure was too low so those numbers would explain it.

I will try the 38F/36R cold PSI and let you guys know how it feels in comparison that way when EVERYONE buys thier Powers from Section 8 , they will know what pressure to run in them.

Michelin rep I spoke with suggested 30/30 for canyons and track. This was corroborated by the tech @ Graves racing who set up my suspension.

What if I drop by and pick a set up. How much then? Or what if I bring my old bolony skins by and you swap them for the new rubber.

I know this is a very subjective question but, what kind of mileage can you get out of these on a "norma" street ridden bike?? Also Chapparral has a speical on both tires for 199.74, but I'm pretty sure that's not shipped.

It was in the newest Cycle World (I think...one of them) in the Chapparral add. They usually have a big, yellow spread that cover's a few pages. Sorry, I don't have a link but I did a search and found the web site, but the deal is not on the web site, just in the mag. It was $199.74 for 120/70 and 180/55 or 190/50, but like I said, I would bet money that doesn't include shipping. I'm gonna call and find out though...
