I am looking for a 2004 R6, 2004 Gixxer, or 2004 CBR RR, those shouldn't be such a heavy bitch. I can't have a heavy SOB.

When you strictly stunt they should be almost flat.

I've heard this and tried it. Its to much trouble to air it up all the time. (low air pressure will destroy a tire) I just do my wheelies with correct pressure. It makes it harder to change lanes or steer around corners but, oh well.

I hardly ever went out just to stunt...so 99% of the time my tires had the correct pressure in them. I still had just as much fun with the correct pressure.

They do that lower press thing to also put a larger foot print on the ground when stunting... very very common produre and most of those stunters have stunt bikes so they don't constantly change the tire pressure. Plus they are using take off's most of the time if they are smart and have a dealer hook up.
