while the specific bike will matter to some degree as does the riders pace......but there is a huge amount of threads on tires and pilot powers specifically in the RC51 forums...use the search and read away.

i'm not sure why the search isn't pulling them then.

a simple search for just "pilot" only brings up 18 threads and i only saw one of them with a recommendation: 22psi...

Very true (as well as road conditions). FWIW I use 30F/28R to 30F/30R on the track and use 32F/34R on the street. This is for the Power Street tires. The Power Race is a little different. YMMV

Mich rep at Seattle Pacf. Int'l Raceway recommend track pressures of 36/35 for Pilot Power. I can't remember his recommended front for Power Race but rear should be 22.

I was told by one of the techs at BCM that Bruce is recomending 32f 34r (street) and 30f 28r (track). His recomendation is good enough for me. They feel great.

if you're referring to the pilot power race tires, they recommend 24R/28F at the track. believe it or not... my buddy had a new set put on and he called the techline just to confirm. just fyi. i was in disbelief but it was true.

maybe different in other states depending on temperature and humidity. so i would consult your local track and tireguy.

I'm curious about something...Am I the only one that thinks he's going crazy because I can't feel a single zippin bit of difference when there's a difference in pressure in my tires?? I've ridden my bike anywhere from 29 to 35 psi in the back and would have been none the wiser if I hadn't seen it on a pressure gauge. I know there's alot more to correct pressure like wear and everything but I just wanted to check and make sure I'm not the only one that can't feel it in the seat of the pants.

for me, i feel a huge difference especially with the front tire. rear is not as noticeable.

I can't necessarily feel it but I can sure see it! Too little pressure and the tire shreds and balls up big time.
