  • Tyre Pressures on BT015R

    I'm running Bridgestone BT015R's on the Gixxer - 120/70 (F) & 190/55 (R).

    Normally I run tyres 1-2 psi down both F & R during the cooler months. So I've been running the Bridgees at 35psi (F) & 37psi (R) with a softer suspension setting. They still feel a bit loose into bends though, once up to temp.

    Just curious as to what pressures you guys run them (or another tyre with similiar profile) during the cooler months?

    ps - we're talking street, not track use.

    Thanks to and ProFlow for assistance.
    A 1K throttle is like a hot blond, you really want to hit it but you are afraid of the consequences :black eye:

      Have the same tyres on the same bike: 32/32 cold is what I use... though really I don't think it makes too much difference, just trial and error with the pressure until you find something you like the feel of.
